This morning I was playing my second game in a IS-3 Defender I took one hit and was destroyed, why?

You were ammo-racked. A shell penetrated your tank and set off your ammo rack, instantly destroying your tank. Russian tanks are notorious for how easily their ammo racks are hit (especially the IS series) and most Russian tanks could benefit from wet ammo racks. 

 

 

It's not a bug, it's a game mechanic. The same way you can be set on fire, you can be ammo racked.

Yeah ammo racks happen.  I'm not sure about the IS3D, but I recently learned that the IS3 is prone to ammo rack.

 

I had it happen out of the blue, three times in a row and before that I had played over 300 games without a single one shot ammo rack death.

When do you show your flat side in any tank?

At the very start of this video look at the two green tanks on the hill in the upper left of the screen. One of them is an IS7. It doesn't show the shot hit him but you can see that he was full health and gets taken out with one shot.The shot hit and exploded his ammo rack.  It shows that the hit took 1900 hit points and show his ammo rack. It happens in the first few seconds so pay attention.
