Same here, which is ironic since the only thing that changes visually with the turret upgrade is a reinforcement to the turret's front end: the gun mantel.

T32 nd T34 are notoriously gun-sensitive tanks.

With Marder II, I never had this problem since I was probably already dead.

With Hetzer I had this problem only when I hit someone with HE ammunition from very short distance.

With Jagdpanther I have this problem too often. Maybe its because of more HP and fact that people use quite a lot of HE ammo. However I still have to improve the crew.

But from the other hand. As a TD player i stay amazed when medium tank hits me from the side, turns the turret and shoot while his gun is even able to aim me (probably not possible with long guns in real life). I wonder how a tank gun is able to shoot "throught" objects without bending or heavier damage.

It does happen, not so often, or... maybe i just dont notice it, because i'm used to insta-repair whatever is damaged on my tank, except for the track and obs device, if the track is just damaged... i can go with it, untill is destroyed, or if the obs device is damaged, well... i dont repair it because i dont find it to be so important, unless... obviously, i'm camping and snipping, or i need to spot/scout.  :lol:


But i say again, it does happen to me, and usualy it's not just damaged, it's completely destroyed, and i have to repair it if i want to take a shot.

The worst thing in it is that ARTY SPLASH destroy gun more often than direct hit -.-.
In E-75 gun is 'dead' very often, same in IS-7.

Thank you for all your replies. From them I conclude that the problem is real, but not many people seem to mind their gun being destroyed on a regular basis. Thus, I will let the matter drop.

They all do mind, but what's there to do?
I mean, there are other, way more pressing issues that have been unresolved for ages. This simply falls way behind.

Yeah, a gun that breaks sometimes is annoying, but look at the KWK L56, that's broken constantly in a sense, there's more pressing issues sadly. :huh:

I don't know if it's a bug or just luck. But my cannon usually gets destroyed also, i repair it and after repair i can't remember my cannon was destroyed again in one match.

btw: When i meet Tiger i always aim his cannon, it never bounces :)

I'm confused. My gun is getting destroyed very often in matches. However, when I am CONSTANTLY hitting the gun of an enemy, I can't damage it, or destroy it. (They still can fire at me, after hitting their gun at least 5 times...)
So... how do you exactly destroy a gun, if shooting at the gun's mantle or the gun's barrel does not work?

Pah, I have seen people casually resurrect nearly 10 year old threads with terrible arcane mastery. These forums simply don't have enough ancient residue and dark forgotten secrets for true threadnomancy to be possible.

really depends on which tank im driving
T34 gun gets damaged at least once in 90% of the games i play, sometimes it gets damaged/destroyed even twice.

Is happening often. well... very often even lower tiers seems now a treath to the gun.

With arty is not that the problem, rather generally only the radio survives.

Did not notice any difference from tank to tank, USSR, US germans or french all looks to suffer this. Some matchs doesnt happen (no arty or tanks with he) but when it happens is happening 2-3 times per match and is a little annoyng

Yes i'm grinding it, i changed in the sniper tanks for it because hopefully helps (repair kits/ med kits are not worthy since is only one and he are massacring your devices or crew)

Very often. Yesterday I've got my e100's gun destroyed by ramming an AMX50b (turret got damaged).

It might have something do with the fact that gun mantles are classed in the game as spaced armour, so most arent very thick so a he shot are a shell shot next to the barrel is more then enough to knock out the gun.

Depends on what tank I'm driving.

Almost each game atleast once in my JT and IS7.
In my T54 some times. My chaffee never.
