Not only this battle. Had a Conway battle a couple of battles earlier where I hit and penned most tanks I shot at except a few ones... all from Russia. At those tanks my shots went low or high.

Not only today, i have noticed that I miss much more at russian tanks than any other nations. Not only do they have best armour and are strong overall, they are harder to hit as well. And when you hit you do more often crits than damage compare to other nations.

One would suggest you only play Russian tanks then.

There is probably an element of truth to this. As a general rule of thumb, Soviet tanks tend to be fairly low profile, making them quite difficult to hit.

Soviet tanks are equipped with a special Russian B.I.A.S deflector force field which is purchasable in the depot. 1 force field costs half a tinfoil hat.

And the quirky angles of their armour mean they bounce far more than they have any right to.

Other than tracks, those have no armor what so ever. None. Been saved by my tracks sooo many times.

I've found the weird angles are enough to get some bounces (though obvs only when I am trying to shoot at them) assuming you're not using a gun big enough to overmatch them in the face.

Or even better; not shoot at them.

Well they have invincible nukes (sounds like something a kid would make up to win at rock, paper, scissors) so stands to reason their tanks have deflector shields and romulan cloaking devices.

1st rule of Soviet Club - Don't shoot at soviet Tanks.

2nd rule of Soviet Club - see rule 1.

3rd rule of Soviet Club - rules 1 & 2 do not apply to Soviet tanks.

​I'm actually not going to scoff at this post or the OP as this has been a repeated topic on TS and many of games I've noticed similar observations.  Scoff at me all you like, but I believe this happens, its subtle but it happens. Many a time my shot has went to the outer ring of my reticule when shooting a Russian Tank.  When I'm in a Russian tank shooting a Russian tank and can just see the Algorithm going "oh ffs"

 

While I cant prove any of it, I believe it happens.

Some perhaps related stats from vbaddict (battles survived/heavy tanks) shows that half the top 10 tanks in tiers 8-10 that survive battles are German.

 

So either uber armour or skill or magic shell guidance or people don't want to fire at pretty tanks going on with the German line and not Russian.

Soviet tanks are usually smaller than other nations'.

 

Just compare Russian heavy sizes to German heavies...
