If I reveal only these small edges to an enemy and they get shot, does shell just go through them with no damage or do I take damage as if I got hit? Want to know this before I buy this tank.

Check it out on tanks.gg: https://tanks.gg/tank/pantherm10/model

The collision model shows that it's spaced armor and that shoots will be absorbed, so it's a decent HEAT shield.

It's counted as spaced armor. Same as the side skirts and rear plate covering up the exhaust. So no.

 

If you want to check the armor layout. Go on tank.gg and check it out there. It shows how much of the tank's side and turret is covered in plates that you don't lose HP from if they get it. As only the armor behind it does that.

Good to know, so it pretty much means that you can poke small edge of a tank out, enemy expects to damage you and bang, no damage. After that, you just laugh :teethhappy:

Just had my first game with it, was not the best game, could have done better and I just might had win the game if I had done my aiming differently.

Actually, as there's no hit box behind those areas any side shot regardless of ammo type will be absorbed. As I believe OP is asking about those small areas specifically.

It's quite a nice tank IMO. The pref MM is really nice but my W/R in it was eviscerated thanks to some of the most atrocious teams I have ever encountered. It's armour seems to be so troll, distinctly remember having multiple bounces from things like RHM Borsigs with the 128mm but getting penned by lower pen guns etc.

True, but I was more thinking about the entire section of spaced armor rather than just those specific areas, but yes I didn't formulate that rather well now that I look back at it.

Ah well, he got the extra service then. Received a generous tip at least?

I can say after playing some games, this tank shines better when it is not top. People seem to target higher tiers first... I will just sneak in and just bang them with my fast reloading gun.

It's spaced armor, so a penetration will do no damage to the vehicle.

Indeed. He is actually buying it so he can scout by poking with only the back part of the turret. New meta revealed?

No idea what does that have to do with my comment or the topic. Oh I see your signature now you're like the rush rating guy but with useless badges. Well hopefully OP didn't follow your worthless "advice".:)

As it has pref mm, as with all pref mm vehicles of late it still won't see tanks two tiers higher but it seems to be in tier 8 battles a lot more frequently than before the last couple of patches.  Combine that with 150mm of pen, it can struggle against some tier 8s.

 

If you don't mind that sort of mm, its a really enjoyable tank for me.  Relatively ok armour for a med, good rate of fire, moves well around the battlefield and isn't too expensive on the occasions when you really must shoot prem ammo (against heavies) to do any damage.

 

I like mine a lot and have no regrets.

Furthermore, this is what happens when you fire at tanks (mostly AMX 13 series) and your craphits very low on the tank.

It means, you crit hit tracks. But since there is no hull(hit box) behind tracks closest to the ground. No damage is dealt.
