I shot the kv-3 and damaged the is-6, sometimes you just gotta shoot and RNG will take care of your shell.

Reminds me of that film with James Macavoy where they bend the bullet trajectories. RNGesus was your friend on this day!

I remember it for Angelina Jolie: "Wanted."

That's the one. Was it her standout Oscar worthy performance that made Jolie memorable? I don't remember her much from that film apart from standing in front of a side of beef then a really elaborate suicide.

 

On that topic, is there a limit to how many times a shell can ricochet in WOT? Would it be theoretically possible (or better proven) to bounce a shell off of multiple targets then blow yourself up?

I don't think so. You have to take into account that, after every ricochet, the projectile will lose 20% of its pen.

I bet the other guy thought he was shot by his teammate

I was wondering only yesterday whether you could hit a tank with a ricochet - now I know the answer

I once shot a KV-85 in the [edited]and in bounced off and killed a friendly Hetzer (he only has 10 or so HP left). Not my finest hour, but definitely my best TK now I look back on it.

It was an early blu ray purchase of mine.  Not a terribly good film.  Just a piece to watch when slightly drunk.

 

Must come a point when the shell has ricocheted so many times it loses all significant kinetic energy and ceases to be a threat.

Myst coma point when the shell has ricocheted so many times it loses all kinetic energy and ceases to be athreat.

 

Yeah, makes sense. i just wonder how many it would take to reach that point. I suppose angle of the bounce would be a factor. Although that may be a bit complicated for WoT
