I was playing skorpion g and I got a steel wall, enemy had no chance against my thick frontal armour! I'm pretty sure this tank needs an armour nerf! I blocked so much damage more than my heavies! I definitely deserved that medal! If you don't believe me check my service record it's there.

You do know it's technically possible to get a Steel Wall without bouncing a single shot. You need to just take more than 10 hits with a total damage of over 1000, survive and have everyone else die.

To be fair I oddly rarely fire HE At Skorps. I know how weak the armour is, I'm just not going to switch to the little HE I carry on most tanks for them unless it's the end-game and I want to guarantee the extra damn. The few HE Shells I do carry are better used to scare redlining Swedish TDs.

No you just got hit more then your HT's. I suspect they did not get hit 11 times. If you get penned 11 times and have 149 HP left.... you can still get it. As the medal is not for bouncing 1K damage or more, it's for taking 11 hits and taking and bouncing a combined 1K damage or more and survive. I suspect you took 1K damage vs bouncing it.

 

So if you get a drive by from a Leo with the 103 gun that has a few low damage rounds, and your HT's gets hit less then 10 times.. it's possible. As my 103 gun on the Luchs gave a steel wall to a WT auf E100 back in the day after sending 5 clips into it from a distance.

When a 48% player fights against multiple 46% players everything is possible....

You hittjhe gun, or you hir the bottom half of the tracks/front drive wheel. All of which are spaced armour and will not take damage.

Almost correct.

All tanks have a hitbox you have to hit to do damage. And the hitbox is the hull + turret in general.

 

Tracks and gun are part of the tank, but not a hitbox, so hitting either will not result in damage unless your shot after hitting either then also penetrates the hull/turret of the tank.

 

Tracks/gun counts as spaced armour.

Let me guess, some LT with an autoloader shot a lot of small holes into your tank. Meanwhile noone else got hit, so you got the steal wall. It's meaningless. I've had steel wall medals in light tanks.

The other day I fired at the side of another Skorpion G with my Skorpion G, straight in the middle of it... Crit hit in the effin' tracks. 0 DMG. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? Do I need to precisely aim at the gun shield to get a friggin' pen nowadays? So I'm a believer, OP. No need to check your stats.
