On paper the tier 6 British tank destroyer AT 8 looks like it is tough opponent to penetrate frontally with its 203mm listed value.  Its sides and rear also have decent 101mm listed values and while these armor thicknesses make the AT 8 difficult to penetrate it does not make it immune if you know where to aim.  Although the AT 8’s armor scheme has 203mm across most of the front it has a critical flaw that shows a massive weak spot on the left side of the tank and also on the top of the tank.  One thing to keep in mind is that the AT 8 is a very short tank height wise and that although some of its armor is strong due to angling if you are shooting down at the AT 8 some area will become much weaker.

This guide is for World of Tanks AT 8 weak spots and breaks down the tank destroyer into areas based on effective armor values.  The easiest places to penetrate are green, yellow areas are your next best shot, and red areas are the toughest armor.  Purple areas are either areas with only track armor, high chance of zero-damage critical hits, or places with no hull armor behind it to cause HP damage at all.

 

So what does everyone think of the AT 8's armor? I've had a few people ask me for additional AT series weak spot guides so I though the AT 8 would be a good place to start. Is it unfair that its main weak spot is there due to an unusable secondary smaller gun?  Here's to hoping that eventually WoT will have multiple gun control so that tanks like the AT 8 and M3 Lee will get a bit of a boost instead of having to lug around unusable guns.

Just started playing this thing, whole tank is a weakspot to be honest, only bads or some really specific cover allow you to bounce anything.

This whole TD line depends on 1 thing only. If you meet at least an average player with just a little bit of hint of skill or not. If you do, too bad youre dead because of the most obvious weak spot in this whole game. If you meet total monkeys that never heard of gold ammo, congratz you just got yourself an ace tanker. Nothing more nothing less.

 

Except for AT-7, when you can hide the whole tank except for the gun, you can take down T9 tanks like flies, best tank in the whole line.
