So, I was playing in my German Bulldog when this happened (skip to 5:40 remaining):

What am I missing here? Why am I getting spotted? 

Say bushes give you roughly 60% camouflage, there were atleast two bushes that weren't transparent...

 

The Ikv has 340m base viewrange...what black sorcery is this?

IMO, there was effectively 1 bush and you weren't 15 metres behind it.

Not all bushes give 60% camo

You should watch your own replay more closely, and additionally have a look around for vehicle equipment. I don't get you lot. How hard can it be to get your facts straights when you actually have your own replay available to watch?

 

Furthermore, while base view range may be 340 meters there's all sorts of equipment, consumables, and crew skills which can enhance it. Most likely that lkv 90 B had binoculars equipped. My estimation is you were quite a bit less than 300 meters away from the lkv when you fired (if memory serves squares on Fisherman's are 100 * 100 meters). Using bush camouflage at 40% the lkv would be able to spot you firing at a minimum of 240 meters and maximum over 280 meters, which would fit in the distance you appear to be from the lkv. Don't know the names of those bushes, but it seems doubtful they're the 50% camouflage sort. I would guess they're 38%.

 

I suppose it's just typical to consider something bugged, without ever making the effort to check some data first.
