I got a T-44 for some day, have lot of fun with it, but too often, i explode at the first impact in my turret.

I've done more than 120 battles, survived at 50 of it, and on 70 death the ammo rack explosion happened half of the time, lot of time at first impact, or by fire (was only 2 times on fire, but always died by ammo rack) and i didn't mentioned the repair bill after doing nothing.
It's more than i ever had on all my other tanks, and i ever seen on my target.

I don't know if i was so unlucky, or its because I'm carrying some HE shell, but I'm worried about this.

Is their any T-44 driver here who can give their impression on that fact?

Drive a Tiger/Tiger 2 then you have ALOT to complain about when it comes to the ammo rakc blowing up or taking nasty damage. I think all tigers drivers will back me up with this lol

yaya...when i was angry about that i started to take pictures of all special damages on my king tiger,i stoped when reached 100 screenshots in few days...and since i don't play much you can imagine how the battles are.


the solution is: get used to it.

I've always carried some of HE shell on me for light or very heavy tanks, since the BT-2 to T-44 (not mention to all that SPG who have only that and don't blow up by their rack)

i think their is a miscoding under that, and if a dev can take a look

@Gilbert27 : i dont talk about have some injury from shot, i talk about being one shot, with injury you can continue to play, not when your dead and you must pay 14k of repair with your 6k earn from your lose, not mention to ammunition you don't have fired

Get your crew to 110, go firefighting>Repair with your crew, and get a wet ammo rack.

And welcome to tier 6+.

with my T-44 i do have the occasional ammo hit, but for me it seems like every first round takes out my gun...and thats it.  the hit will not to any damage to me half the time but it just takes out my gun GGRRR

oh well i guess, i still love the tank.

Yep my T44 can go up like a roman candle in one shot, I've had a PZ4 do it many times, the three tanks in the tree below never had this problem.  I have other medium tanks and they don't do it either.

I don't know why, but I haven't had a problem with fires or ammo rack (anymore than on any other tank)- and I always carry 15 HE with me. I am using a crew with repair and firefighting skills.

edit - day before yesterday ran into this problem about 5 games in an hour and a half (one-shotted by tanks that I normally eat for breakfast). I was lucky enough to have the money to install a wet rack and it has since virtually disappeared.

I don't know for certain, but I think the un-upgraded turret, although thinner, actually provides better protection - maybe I'm totally wrong, but I only noticed the ammo rack problem after the new turret was installed.

mhm than i have a other playstyle i get only 1 amo-rack hit(not even explosion) in 20 games when i use AFL.
Btw i only see amo-rack explosion from T-44 when they stopped, never when they drive(no in a line, zick-zack).
T-44 is a bigger Leo with better gun, so use it like a Leo, don´t try to snipe with a T-44.

Yea i agree the T44 seems to have much higher chance to go up by ammo rack, but oh well buy a wet ammo rack.    Seems like the IS3 is the same way.  Also funny story i had my gun pointed through a building and arty hit the other side of the building destroying my gun... Not sure if that's intended.. but kinda funny.

The T44 is an ammo rack on tracks. It carries a large amount of ammunition in what can be described as quite a slim vehicle, so there are ammo racks scattered all over the place.

QFT

I do not think my ammo rack has blown either since i got a wet ammo rack. A wet ammo rack is mandatory on this tank imho and once you have it the problem goes away.

I have one spot left for a mod and have been tossing up between the wet ammo rack ... I cant say that I have had that many times when it has been a huge problem, having said that though if I loose speed all sorts of warnings go off!

I test it a few more times and see if I can get some figures over X amount of rounds regarding damage taken based around moving or stationary.
