All the damn game I had played I always try to get an ammo rack shot, but I didn't.I try shooting the sides of the turret and never get atlease 1.Can someone please explain where to shoot an enemy to get an ammo rack shot and what type of ammunition to use or can somone direct me to a video to learn better about it.

 

My questions are

1. Can a light tank get an ammon rack?

2.Where is the ammon rack located in most vehicles

3.Can HEAT,HE and APCR get an ammo rack shot

33% chance of dmg. I do that easy enough. When I detonate the ammo rack, it's always for >100 dmg in something like an IS or the like....

And that does not happen often tbh

You spell this word incorrectly every time you use it.  The word is properly spelled damn      There is no i .


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

The bigger the gun, the bigger the chance for an ammo rack. AP (specifically AP, I'm not sure if HEAT and HE can't detonate ammo racks or just have a lower chance, but AP does.) from big guns 130mm and up tend to have the best chance for an ammo rack kill. Certain tanks have weaker ammo racks, such as the Leopards (all three) the Sturer Emil, and the Borsig.

As in a T49 ammo wracking another tank? 

 

You have never seen a T49 then.

OP.. 

there is an app you can get for your device called.. "armor inspector". it allows you to look at each tank and shows you where each module is on each tank. 

get it, and learn how to use it..you need it.

 

also.. to ammo rack.. you have to penetrate.. AND cause damage. Most ammo is kept in the back of a tanks turret. Shoot there.. and you will most likely .. eventually ammorack someone. 

 

and to make SURE.. you can use HE.. or HEAT.. on a light or medium tank whine driving a big gunned heavy.

 

 


Damage... Shoot at everything... damage... don't get hit... damage... don't crest hills... take every shot you can... damage...damage.. the closer you are.. the higher the damage, (cept for the high caliber monster guns)... damage...damage... damage.. get damage... shoot.. shoot... get damage.. don't get hit.... damage... shoot at.. shoot.. aim.. shoot.. get IN there? or hang back?.. damage.. shoot.. shoot...  shoot.. 

 

Wait, where's my team? Why am I alone? Oh Dear G... pzzzzssssssttt....

Alright -- here's a tip that I use frequently. Whenever you shoot a tank and you damage the ammo rack, try to hit the same space a few more times and you'll ammo rack em

If you don't wanna go to the effort of looking at all the tank models then just aim for the turret back/ side and hull under the turret. Those are the most common locations of ammo racks. Oh and the front of Russian mediums tier 8 and up.( I forget which side)


I'm good at this game I promise
