I've just discovered something I didn't realise before. I was in my KV-85 on 100%. A E25 was charging me, he took 2 direct hits, had about 7% HP left & he drove right up into my front & I died because my gun had 0 depression & wouldn't hit it. I thought this guy was bonkers charging me like he did. Now I know why.

Interested to know if there's other tanks if you're nose to nose, you can't shoot at?

O-Ho vs. many tanks.

Mostly though, tallish tanks with little frontal gun depression.

That's why i tend to charge and headbutt russian tanks when i was driving the T29, T30, T34 because the only spot they can shoot is your mantlet.

if they're smart enough they reverse and just out-flank you with their superior ground resistance and tank traverse values because Balanced™

I've found KV-1/1s & KV-85 have 0 depression. You even move over a slight bump & you can't hit anything. Which I don't really think is possible as it defeats the purpose of having a gun, mounted in a raised turret, if you cant hit tanks in front of you if your on a upward slope of any degree.

You only need to get your rear up by a few degrees to be able to shoot him. This should be possible in most places, if you are aware of your surroundings. Most tanks will tilt slightly forward if you back up against a wall, for example.

If you want to get banned from the game, you need to do better then that. This is not even a forum ban.

I think I might have been asleep for this bit of my biology classes in school, because I don't understand how the picture in the spoiler shows an example of "nose to nose"..? 

Is it something subtle to do with the 'nose' of the nosey neighbour, who is peering nosily in through the window..?  Whose nose we can't, perhaps importantly in a metaphorical sense, actually see..?

Or is her invisible nose in some way linked to the other invisible nose in the picture..?  Is that the point, the 'nose to nose' reference, that is being made here..?  Who knows..?  Perhaps that is it - the second of the noses in the 'nose to nose' is in fact intended to be read as a 'knows', and the point that the OP is making is that it takes a nose (as in nosiness, in this case represented by the neighbour) to know.  That would make some sense.  Although if this IS the correct reading, then i think it is worth noting that the neighbours mouth is pictured as a clear 'O' shape which, with mouths, generally indicates surprise, if not shock, and this must surely lead to an inference, if not fully an assertion, that the act of knowing - in this case at least - is a matter out of the ordinary. 

But this presentation of knowing as something extra-ordinary is of course at odds with the second part of the OP's original assertion about the whole 'nose to nose' thing being "right up ur street", a phrase which locates it squarely within the everyday and familiar.

It is this internal tension within the statement as a whole if the second 'nose' is read as 'knows' that ultimately leads me to abandon the idea that the OP meant it to be read as a comment on the processes of knowledge and thereby leaves me, as before, mystified as to how the picture throws light on the phrase 'nose to nose'.

But the discussion engendered at least answers for me what I do sometimes when I can't sleep of a night.

See you on the battlefield - even nose to nose maybe.

You can go to the back of all the British T8-T10 tanks and be safe, because they have 0 gun depression over the back.
Just take your regular low silhouette tank.
Works against IS-7/IS-3 aswell if you are in a low tank, like T62A/Obj 140, or the ELC AMX when it could meet T8.

Frontally, there are many tanks which are almost invournble when face hugging or face hugging against.

Caernarvon worked better then expected and Conqueror seemed to be invournable against German T9 heavies when I tried.

Skoda T40 vs ELC. First time I saw this it was jaw dropping. That's one of the reasons why I dislike T40.

It's even worst. Just -2.5°

And there's the reason why I ended up free-exping it.

It is simply unplayable on anything but a citymap.

E25 vs most things.
And UDES3 and STRV S1 against most things.

 

It's one of my favourite tactics, except I tend to come up behind ...
