 Tank shells tend to have little problems piercing flesh.

 

 

Shells travel inside the tank depending on their calibre. It has a chance to damage everything it hits (simplified) on the way, that is if the module damage reaches the crew/module HP. There are often ammo rack modules inside the turret. It's maybe a 1-2% chance of two modules getting damaged, provided the shell travels through both of them. Don't feel too special. ;)

 

(At least you can fix both; it sucks more on tanks where two crew members are 'lined up' to get hit in a head-on shot. Shermans in particular.)

Last I've seen when that happens it tells you that you are dead. No chance to use a med kit even if you have one (presumably because no one is alive to administer it?)

I know the crew is displayed as knocked out after the tank got destroyed, but aren't they okay, unless they have been killed by the shot that destroyed their tank?

I had this in my Batchat once.

It wouldn't let me use a med kit and just showed me as dead... A bit like drowning, I was dead but people could still shoot me for the rest of my HP

Yes. The exception is if the vehicle drowns in which case all crew is killed, otherwise if they don't specifically get hit and taken out they'll survive the battle.

Any high tier Brit is plated with crew and ammo rack, so quite easy to get multiple damages

Ammo rack damage might be the game's way of telling you that the BV has been damaged, which repair job would likely be delegated to the loader.

 

(This would frankly make for a decent buff to the British, a BV module providing +10% crew performance on the move for T8-10; lower tiers would have to make do with the same bonus stationary, where crews had to make tea externally.)

I had my entire crew killed by a single shot from a 13 90 when I was grinding the Ferdinand some years ago.

Try ammoracked, damaged gun, damaged engine,dead loader, gunner and driver. Been there and done that in far too many tanks. And yes, ofc I use consumables.  XD 40 sec reload on a Derp gun is fantastic.
