Why does sheridan sometimes bounce AP shots aimed at the hull?

This should start at 32 seconds and answer your question and show examples. 

As far as AP and APCR; they really aren't bounces. They are likely shots that only hit the pink spaced armor and not the actual tank beneath.

Look at the Sheridan in armor inspector: the entire back corners is spaced armor. To avoid the wrap, aim at the turret or the area behind the tracks (into the side). The lower glacis and center driver's hatch in the front also has no spaced armor. 

 

When aiming at the rear, hit the corner closer to you, or try to be square in the middle. The actual Sheridan hull is like a stick of butter in a box of spaced.

Spaced armor by itself will not stop AP shells, it will stop heat and make HE splash, but the AP has enough effective penetration to go through, however be careful as there are parts of the sheridan's armor with nothing under it like the very front or back which AP shells will pass right through missing the actual tank's insides, to be safe just aim for center of mass with AP, and turret/lower glacis in the back with HE, as well as right above the tracks and under the spaced armor.

Black magic that Cletus used to make the spaced armor instantly devour any shell which dares to enter it. shells that go in never come out...

Sounds like the child support money that he owes the twins.

Jesus christ, thx for all yall explanations.
Does that mean you can bait shots if you show a small part of you butt that's just spaced armor?

Yep, I'm sure that's a legitimate strategy in certain scenarios (like if you're stuck in a peek-a-boom situation against someone who doesn't know what they're doing).

I used it to bait missile shots into my rear. I have it recorded but not on the channel. I’d just shake my tail feathers out there and beg for the missile. The in-chat response from red was as expected.
