Okay, this is really starting to tick me off when this happens.

Tier 7 t43 must have a Glitch with the gas tank hits , I'm sitting at angle to get ricochets from enemy tanks when boom my gas tank goes off.

There is not an enemy behind me ,just front side armor hits. There is no way the gas tank is the in front of the tank .

I highly doubt the shells from 7s like m25 lights and Mediums shells are going all the way through my front armor to hit the rear gas tanks.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't agree with these hits I'm taking.

Cliff notes

Angled slightly to reduce penetration or ricochets  off armor

I know this isn't a highly armored tank

Front side gas tank hit ,lite on fire

My crew roasting in tank like rotisserie chicken

Both sides in the main body behind the turret are listed as gas tanks.

Some tanks are prone to tank damage and fire.

The gas tank is in fact on left side in the front. Its like that in most Soviet mediums. And yes, a little dinky shot from an m 25 CAN set it off, all the shot needs is a class 1 pen boost skill and a class 1 sniper skill. With all the shots fired at you its no surprise that one manages to pen and set you on fire.

Not all fuel tanks are located in the very back. The German E-series are notorious for having transmissions in the front, right by their lower glacis weakspot, making engine fires from the front extremely common for them. Other tanks work the same way.

​Totally irrelevant. If it pens, it pens. Angling and getting penned results in the same damage/module damage as not angling and getting penned.
