rattovolante;4377262the semovente 47 is actually open-topped (what appears to be the "roof" in game is a cloth cover -> pic.) so in theory you should be able to kill the crew with HE (or nades)... I haven't tried it yet, though (I don't think I ever encountered one so far, no one uses it, the "sliding tank bug" makes aiming almost impossible)

Yeah.

However, I'm pretty sure I killed a carro armato. I could be mistaken though, its been a while.

'[5thLupin;4377236']I was shooting it. Ran out of PZG40 so I had to resort to normal ap rounds. He was out of ammo and I was point blank (literally) pumping AP rounds into his sides, rear, and engine deck and had absolutely 0 effect. Then he rammed me and we got into a major tank pushing contest so I drove off a bit and charged into him at full speed, his tank flew over the top of mine, and exploded.

lol, ironicly, the only place AP do damage is at front(somewhere just below turret ring), try it out.

Wow, didn't know that. Is it a bug or something?

Von Mudra;4377212 Pzfausts and Pzschrecks that were quite instrumental in stopping the soviet advance at Tali-Ihantala and Ilomantsi.

And Äyräpää-Vuosalmi, Nietjärvi, Siiranmäki... ;)

seemed not to be a bug, since it survived the patch and had been found by me before that...

put a few AP into that will kill the tank. in fact, 1-2 PZG into it will kill the tank.

note: that area is very small , you need to drive quite close to shoot into it, because it's also sloped..., in medium range you need some luck...

Right, someone has put up a weakspot guide somewhere. I believe the fron spot is actually some kind of horizonal piece of armor between the turret and the vision slits. Further, I think PZG40 might be able to hurt it via the rear of the turret. The Matilda is easier. Just slip rounds into the holes on the track covers.

Well seems like even in the early part of the war tankers of all countries viewed the turret ring as a potential target. I don;t think it's especially weak; it's just that damaging the ring might wreck its turret rotation and turn the tank into a assault gun.

Of course it could also be a shot trap, like with the early Panthers, where AP rounds that hit just under the turret were deflected down onto the heads of the driver and/or radio man
