it toke 1 grant 75mm cannon hit from side and almost no damage, ... well, i suspect there's some problem with the armour on that tank.

AFAIK now tank rounds will only destroy or cause serious damage to other tanks if they hit a vital spot... IE, turret, ammunition compartment, engine, tracks (I'm assuming).

Either that or it was a server/client problem.

The Grants canon has been changed to the actual 75mm M2/M3 gun, not the Sherman's gun, so it is a bit weaker now, so 1s1k to the side of the M13/40 aren't as likely.

you don't understand me, it only takes 20% damage, well...i am the M13 to be shot, and we are very close.

not dying might be acceptable from a side hit, but 20% damage is just... ridiculous.

I've had it happen before, like a Grant deflecting a Pz4F2 shot to the side. It seems as if on random chances the armour can sometimes deflect shells.

That noted, the M13/40 is a beast.

I've yet to use it, but I notice that the anti-tank gun version of the fiat seems to take hits well.

I was surprised to see how hardy this was as it took 3 direct side hits from my Stuart before even starting to smoke. After that driver bailed out so it must have hurted it badly.

Now I need to get my hands on it so I can myself see if this is really so good as it seems to be. When it shot my to front I almost lost half of my HP (I was in Stuart) so its cannon seems good too.

the like the 47mm gun, it doesnt hurt the grant like i'd like , but its a flat shooter and is fairly accurate. the sights are great too.
