Wouldn't it be cool if the ammo rack detonation would cause damage in a 2-3 meter radius around your tank?. For example say you get surrounded and they all come up close like right in your face and detonate your ammo, you should at least damage them from the explosion for being too close to you when they blow you up ( there should be a downside to ammo racking someone from up close) would add a sort of precaution mechanic to the game that would make you think a bit more before you actually go with 3 guys right up someone's [edited]( you might all get some damage or a bit of stun). Anyway just a suggestion maybe sounds like something that people would enjoy and would also make someone who got ammo racked from up close feel like they at least stunned or damaged and helped the team even in death.

If the turret lands on another tank, there will be damage being dealt. That has happened since ammo rack kills started blowing up turrets.

I think that's enough.

While its not the worst idea ive ever heard, I would rather they be left as it is. There is no reason to change them so why try to fix something that is not broken. Especially when WG is in charge of the 'fixing' :ohmy:

No reason to do this.

Tanks do not explode like the cars do in Hollywood movies, and that event can not damage the other nearby tanks. Even the ammo-rack explosion animation that we have now in game is quite exaggerated.

Well, your videos are all of the ammo rack "cooking off" i.e. the munitions are burning, not exploding.

 

They can explode:

To cause an explosion that would harm the tanks around you, you'd need way more explosive substances inside the tank and way more steel wrapped around it.

WoT isn't realistic at all, but no need to make it worse.

I wasn't suggesting that OPs suggestion was wanted, in case you thought I was. 

Just demonstrating that the ammo rack blowing off is realistic.

I guess you are right, but even in this case the turret just flips off the tank. 

To damage another tank close to one that is getting ammo explosion, that explosion should be comparable to a tactical nuke.

Like Jigabachi said, WoT is not exactly a realistic sim - but let's not make it a anime movie please. ;)

Yes.  As I said in my reply to Jiga, posting the video was to site that ARs do explode the turret off the tank. Not that it'll level the terrain around it

I didn't. ;)

My comment was just a general answer to the OP.

 

btw: Now, whenever I open Youtube on my phone, it suggests lots of Allahusnackbar videos...

If you don't see me posting this week, I got imprisoned for terrorism and having over 500 pictures of cats on my phone. No idea which will cause the main punishment.

I reckon you are cherry picking your videos as am I. Bottom line is your statement about cars is not relevant and tanks can and do explode quite violently!. tanks dont fight in close proximity like they do in game ( generally) and I am certain that any tank sat next to one of these would suffer similar damage to a HE round not penetrating, crew injuries, damage to optics ETC.
