OK, I have a "win 4 battles in a light" mission so I drag out the T92E1 for a chew and get into a 3v3 skirmish at the top of Middleberg.  By the time I've cleaned up that, the battle ends.  So I have to look at the team battle results to see what happened in town and here's what I see:

 

 

A Foch w 4 dmg that earned 784 XP.  Seems weird, so I look at his results specifically:

 

 

I cannot figure out what happened here.  How does someone get 4 penetrations on 2 different tanks and get 4 dmg total?  So one shot kills a tank with 4 hit points left, got it.  The other three penetrations?

The answer is of course “blatant RNG/MM game rigging for balance”. Enjoy!

Tell that guy to GIT GUD. He might do 6 dmg with 4 shots next time you meet. The way to improve is long and tough!

Either tracks, or high-explosive splash damage.

Thanks folks.  Tracks.  I should have figured that out, though I wouldn't have guessed a 0-dmg broken track was a "penetration".

Module damage counts as a pen, even if it doesn't do HP damage. Other things like damaging the gun or sight also count as a pen.

Objectively, immobilizing a tank by ( red ) tracking it should do damage ... but for some reason in game it doesn't.
