Has anyone else been getting set on fire pretty much every game in this tank? I appreciate I'm not the best player, but it doesn't happen in any other tank I've owned. There have been three occasions in 89 games (I've been counting) where I've been set alight once, the AFE has gone off, and then the very next shot has burnt me to a crisp. Am I just being super unlucky, or is it a trend?

Cant say its been a problem


Its happened once that I recall in 61 games, I've had the ammo rack explode several times though but always under fire from multiple opponents so even that didn't seem untoward


Seems to take a beating pretty well so far


But is 3 in 89 a big deal anyway? You might go the next 200 games without it happening once


if it was 10% of games I might see it as an issue and carry an AFE in that vehicle, but I would give it another 111 games and see how many times its happened by then personally

It's probably just me then. By the law of averages, everyone must have an unlucky tank in their arsenal.

Russian and Chinese mediums all have fuel tanks in the front,

so yea, they do burn bright.

Hide your hull, show only your turret.
