I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but if you shoot a tank with a faust in the ass you would think you would kill it (if it is a lighter tank) but much of the time it won't kill the tank, it won't even make it smoke!!!!!!!!!:wtf: I have shot Shermans and T34s in the ass numerous times without the tank even smoking! This has happend when in Tigers too. I shot a T34 in the rear of the left track w/ a tiger, nothing, no smoke billowing from the tank or nothing; it indicated I hit the tank on my crosshair! Is this a bug or have these two tanks been beefed up a bit.:confused: :confused:
The weakest spot on a tank is generaly the top or the belly. If you cant shoot those, then normaly the tracks are quite a good place to go for.
The rear armour can still be pretty though and dont expect to be able to kill every tank from behind. Also the angle in which you hit makes a difference. You AT weapon will only have full effect if you hit in a 90° angle. If you hit in a 45° angle your at weapon will have significantly less effect.
