Komrad_BThe hatch was locked 90% of the time.

No it wasn't, there were no locks:rolleyes:. And they usualy used the grenade thing to stop an enemy tank.:0wned:

Are you serious or sarcastic? :lol: If you are serious, then you are seriously mistaken. Why would you lock your house, yet leave your 50ton tank's "door" unlocked :rolleyes:

Artillery, planes and anti-tank guns made up the bulk of the tank killing. Stories of frag grenades killing tanks are very rare at best ( in fact, I don't believe I've read anything on this other than BS written by persons who watched Saving Private Ryan).

A)There were locks, tank hatches were shut during combat. B)They used AT weapons, tanks,etc, rarely nades. BTW as Lex Luthor would say "WRONG!" .

They just twisted a thing to keep it shut, and i was talking about close combat infantry situations.:moon:

...where it was *STILL* closed. All a lock is,is a twisty thing. A hatch closed at 50meters is the same as a hatch closed at 3 meters, excpet looks smaller.

Explain me how you can open a tank's hatch from outside if it is locked by the crew from the inside (if they had "twisted the thing")? Be honest, you are basing all your arguments on Saving Private Ryan and you are pulling the rest from your ass (hence why you obsessively use this smiley).

Above is the hatch of a T34-85, try to force the two "twisted thing" open with your hands.. from outside.

Depends on the situation and whatnot. Sometimes tankers locked there hatches, like germans in the eastern front where they had those crazy Russians trying everything. However, in many other places the precautions weren't so thorough.

Of course other players poping open enemy hatches is a bad idea.

Of course a tank cought unaware in friendly territory, far from combat, would have his hatch unlocked, but inside the combat zone they would be kept locked most of the time. It might be possible to give the tanker the choice of locking his hatch or not, and make a complicated and tenuous probably buggy code allowing to open the hatch should the tanker not lock his hatch for some reason. However, this would be useless... since everybody would lock it!

Well, as for the stolen tanks... Getting frienedly fire is one of the risks tankers take by stealing enemy tanks. That should be a deterrent to stealing them. People would still do it, but I don't think locks are necessary.

Maybe... I for one would be less enthousiastic about running around in a stolen tank. Consider however that a stolen tank would provoke unspeakable paranoia to its former team in some map. An allied Panzer IV would be deadly for example. Tiger would be too obvious since there aren't many, and the germans would spotlight it after the first kill, but a Panzer IV would be much more dangerous since there are many.
