So I saw on a recent post that spaced armor can make up for otherwise weak sections of the tank. 

Since I am still quite new, could someone please enlighten me on how to use it effectively? I don't normally drive tanks with it, but I would like to know any information that would improve my gameplay.

There’s no way to use it effectively in a the basic sense. It’s basically very troll. If you can try to make he and heat shells hit it, as they both can’t penetrate spaced armor.

Just didn't know if there were any special tricks to using it.

yeah theres nothing you can do to use it. It's basically just anti HE because HE wont make it to the hull with any pen. And on a lot of Russian tanks its at extreme angles so even if its only 10mm that multplies and the rest of the side multiplies and it can get weird bounces outside of your control.

Actually, HEAT shells can penetrate spaced armor if you have enough pen and if you shoot at the right sections of spaced armor from the correct angle. An example would be the T69, which, with 275mm of HEAT pen, can go through the lower glacis plate of a Super Pershing as long as the Super Pershing isn't too angled.

 

In case it's helpful to anyone, I found the spot in the War Gaming video that taught me about HEAT shells and spaced armor here: https://youtu.be/YtuYAiVZ050?t=717

It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

The only trick I've done is baiting a T49 to shoot your spaced armor, if you're driving something like a T-44-100. However, I would not recommend doing that all of the time, as you put yourself at risk of getting shot by another enemy tank, and the T49 could get a lucky penetration.

Say you’re in a tank that has a HE-able front, you want to turn your tank to the side and show your tracks to them. If you time it right they will shoot your tracks and only do splash damage. This is pretty hard to master since you have to know every tanks reload time tho

Drive a Sheridan. No HE or HEAT getting through that unless you have shots on the back, but even that is troll.

 

No, I’m not defending German technical superiority, I’m stating the ****ing obvious!
