First what did he hit you with HE would explain it,

otherwise ricochet ? entered the hatch then bounced around till it hit a shell :).

Commander fell down on the rack's when he got knocked out.

 

Or he used HE. Or the shell bounced off something to change direction... as in down towards your modules. As a shell don't stop doing damage or stops traveling just because he hit thin armor always.

Ammo is stored in the turret ready for quick access. A shot penetrating the turret via the cupola could set that ammo off I believe.

If he fired from a higher point, then it's possible. At the rear end of the turret is the ammorack. Shell pens cupola, goes down a little due to normalization & kills commander & takes out ammorack.

Fairly common to have ammunition stored in the turret, either the sides or back, as ready storage. Most likely the shot came in at an angle and penetrated far enough to hit one of these, after all shells penetrate up to 10x the caliber. Basic knowledge.

 

Provide the replay so we can see what happened, and/or educate yourself on basic game mechanics. Preferable both.

Was it you dude that I spammed today with HE in my stock VK100.01P? I remember spamming the crap out of a defender that kept peeking out and bouncing like crazy on sand river. If it was me, oh well, please understand that the stock gun is painful and I refuse to spam gold ammo. :trollface:

After I saw a Conqueror getting set on fire with a shot at the cupola at the top of the turret I believe in everything.

commander was smoking, he was killed, cigarette fell on leak , gas exploded... so fire... there is a reasonable explanation for everything:trollface:

 I kind of can't believe you on that one. unless he shot you from below, pierced you tracks and went in your turret through a very strange angle.

If a shell goes through your tank. That pretty much destroys your tank regardless of what tank class it is. Shots shouldn't go through your tank & damaging a module on the other side. Just like how shots shouldn't go through enemy tanks & hit the floor on the other side, as if the enemy tank wasn't there. But it does.
