As for actuality I'd like to emphasize that slope is a different story and a shot that is shown as green can easily not penetrate. Especially on T-54s  :Smile-hiding:

the color indicator depends on your crosshair that you chose in Settings. Some crosshairs won't show this

Where is the trick to aim for the tracks?

I never get a crit-aim for them.
Seems to be completly random when the brake.

But I lost so much times my tracks from far behind visiblity
that I guess their is hidden aim point?

Aiming the front track...  usually gets the job done....   Oh ya.. don't expect to take off an Is7 track with 1 shot from a standard tiger tank gun....   I've tried it...

Front track and back track. Shooting the middle gives only a very low chance of detracking.

Unless your firing on a tank at 1% health then you can bet your life it will get tracked.  :rolleyes:

my Tiger had exactly 44 hp.

a hummel hit's it directly in the track.

track doesn't break.

track absorbs all dmg.

i kill the hummel and i'm still at 44 hp but my poor track is orange now.

there still be something wrong mate :P

Green:
Green shows that the shot you are about to make has a very good chance at penetrating the spot you are aiming at. Always be sure to look for spots like that, especially when you are up frontally. Tankdestroyers are hard to penetrate from the front, even for higher tier tanks, thanks to their sloped armour. There are still some spots that will show green, that is in most cases the area around the barrel. Shots aimed there will likely go through and score a good hit.


this sadly works only on german TDs, but with that hit theres 90% chance that you will take his gun with you!

Crap, and here I am, colorblind... :<

Fml...

Same here :( I simply can't distinguish between the yellow and green circles. In addition I can barely see the red enemy-dots on the minimap while they are covered in brown / dark green terrain.

Need "colorblind-mode" for red/green- and blue/yellow-colorblind people!

After one of the later patches it has been made into an option i think. Don't know if you have to enable it at first.
