Never thought I'd be saying this but -----> try using hitbox skins.

http://forum.worldof...ins-version-11/

They show you weakspots of tanks and easily penetrated/possible critical hit spots.

But after you learn where to hit, please remove them, as they serve no purpose and make the game stupid.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLATION:


1. Go to your WoT directory, go to res>vehicles, and back up that entire folder.

2. Now download your hitbox skin dds files, and extract them to the relevant vehicle folder.

3. A window will pop-up asking to replace the orginal, click YES

4. Now you're done ... to revert to the original skins, simply go to your back-up'd vehicle folder, copy the .dds files, and move them to the relevant vehicle file (replacing the skin .dds's)

For the German tanks I usually go for the sides and rear of that big turret. Also rear of the tank is fairly vulnerable on all of those tanks (IS-7 especially). If your gun is too small to penetrate those spots you can try hitting their tracks - if you can make them immobile they'll become a juicy target for artillery.

Alternately you can just HE-spam them, hoping to do as much module damage as you can.

EDIT: I see you have an IS-7 yourself, with quite a few battles on it - how come you didn't learn this yet?

E100: E75, E50: Always lower front plate on the armour, E75 commanders copula on the turret as well. (sides and rear obviously)
Maus: Sides, Rear
IS7: Drivers hatch, or angled from the front. (sides and rear obviously)

Maus: The lower front plate between the tracks can easily be penetrated by higher tier tanks.

If you cannot penetrate them and use HE, aim for the front of the turret. In my experience you do more damage by aiming at the gun, then on the turret side/tank front/tank side. Exception: IS7 usually bounces my HE on turret, lol.

- The lower hull armor generally.
- Tanks have different stats. For example, a T30 does much more damage per shot than a IS-7 (but has a slower Rate of Fire). Also: some SPGs can oneshot tanks in some cases.
