I don't recall this ever happen to me in a match but this time my Lowe fire a He to a side of a rhm.B-WT and that single shot manage to damage his whole crew members except the comannder. Was this thing patched or its just the way borsigs behave with He?? If so...Could a He shot ammo rack a borsig??

It has a whole 20mm of aluminum foil as armor. Everything from nearly any tier can HE pen it.

IRL, if you look at the tank and how its crew is situated, it would be pretty realistic for a single 105mm HE shell to splat all but one of them.

WoT blitz is better than WoT PC imho because no arty and +/- 1 mm.

He wasn't running the right equipment.

You want the top middle slot thing that gives you extra crew protection when in a Borsig.

Otherwise, you'll lose 2-4 of them every time something HEs' you.

Also protective kit helps when attempting to keep things from turning yellow/red when hit.

The entire line is that way. Just a bunch of punchy, make your day even worse guns wrapped in a tinfoil shell.

I mean, if you're at the local Sonic and someone chucks a hand grenade in your 'vette (which has about the same armor profile), you'd have a bad time too.

  1. Take a aluminum can
  2. Put two or three GI. Joes in that can.
  3. Shoot said can with a 12 gauge.
  4. Inspect GI. Joes inside.

 

That's about what it's like when you shoot a Borsig with HE.


If you find that you lose more often then you win it may be time for you to admit that "the team" isn't the problem...

Did they ever fix it so when you were behind the Borsig and you shoot the back of the gun with HE it does no damage, even though the explosion from the HE round would be INSIDE where all the crew is sitting?

 

I always liked that bug when I was driving a light or a medium tank.  It was well balanced.


Today I went to the bathroom and forgot my phone.

 

There are 256 tiles in the bathroom...

That’s not a bug! It’s a layer of auto bouncing, splash-proof, panoramic view, invisible glass. Why else do you think we call it the GLASS canon?!
