What i mean is, what would be the worst position in a tank would be and also what tank?

I think Radio man for KV-5 that R2-D2 gets shot so much....close after is the commander for AT Series of tanks for Brit TD line.

Any crew on any tier 2 tank. Those are the only ones I see dying because the entire crew got knocked out.

IS6/IS4 - driver

any position on the new German TD line - when an HE shell comes its way - someone of the crew will die

commander on a majority of tanks - commander hatch is mostly a sweetspot

commander on T110Ex/Foch series - those tumors attract shells (except T110E3, which is hard to penetrate)

On the Leo1 , i think the Gunner has a shell strapped on hes back and as a proffesion hes a goalkeeper in real life . Every time someone shoots at the tank he tryes to defend hes tank by rushing to the incoming bullet HEAD FORWARD . Pretty sure hes screaming ILL CATCH IT ILL CATCH IT while doing it .

Other than the permadead radio operator in the KV5, the loader in the Tortoise, poor guy, if it wasn't for the spall liner I would have to carry 2 medpacks just for him to survive a battle  :sceptic:

Every crewmember in sta-1. The armor is made of ammorack and crew, so if the crew does not get hit you are sure they all die of the exploding ammo rack. I imagine they take turns to stand in front of the ammo rack so only 1 crew die instead of all. Of course it only works sometimes, often they fail and ammo rack explodes anyway :-D

 

Edit

I am almost sure that when HD models are out, you will see the crewmembers running around taking turns strapping themselves on the outside of the tank to protect the ammo rack. It surely is a deficit of polygons that makes this visual feature unavailable right now.

That does happen on higher tiers too, had a dead driver in my t-54 and arty miss on the ground beside me knocked rest of the crew out, had about 1000ish hp left but gg. Mind you this was before arty nerf so it is quite rare. 

 

If you think sta-1 crew is bad wait until you get to the type 61, less crew damage overall but im positive that loader tries to catch every shell that he can find... so ill  vote for type 61, same shot usually kills loader and damages ammo rack :unsure:

The second loader in the tortoise. I think he has the same survival rate as the radioman on the KV5.

 

I won't tell you where he is, but he is exactly where it makes most sense to shoot the tort when shooting it from the front. This poor guy probably doesn't even survive 30% of all battles (and that is including the battles where I healed him, which is about every single battle :p)

 

Really stinks to lose the loader constantly on a tank that is centered around ROF. If only it was the commander or radioman.

 

I would love for someone to shoot my radioman instead.

 

Please shoot my radioman next time, pleaaaaase :girl:

I would love having the radioman dying first than other crew.

A pair of pz1cs did that to my crusader when I had it. I angled and bounced most of their shots, it just seems that every shot that went through killed a crew member

From my personal experience(I didn't drive too many tanks :sads:), it's definitely driver or gunner, don't remember, for Object 268, and ammo rack and driver for IS-3. Regarding the latter, it's entire hull and turret are practically an ammo-rack, first shot usually damages it, after I repair it, it get's damaged again, and next time I get ammo-racked :cool:

Type 64 commander, poor chap gets thrown out of the tank regularly when the driver takes a hill too enthusiastically.

That's something I want to see with the new graphics! Crew members getting shot out of open-topped tanks.:trollface:

I was grinding the french heavy line and the tier 6 ARL44 was of course weak and every shot either tracked u and/or killed one or two crew members.
