The crowning solo achievement of SPG play ?  to kill at least two red tanks with one shot.

 

How common are these ?  I have only ever seen one won in a battle and never managed one myself (yet); who has the highest number of these elusive medals ?

 

be proud artillerymen (and women); boast of your achievements !

I only got 3 of them... 2 I got in the same match with the M40/43 "pre arty nerf" when I did try to do the old Obj SPG missions to kill 2 with one shot before they redid rework the missions to only stun 3 in one hit. The other is from the T-55A missions when you needed the same iirc on the pre nerf GW Panther.

Think I've only got three of them but I got two in the same battle once. Sadly you only get credited one medal tho. Disappointment. :(

I have 40 Bombardiers medals, but I think this was my ultimate Bombardiers in the tier 8 French Lorraine - 3 tanks with 1 shell lol https://youtu.be/MjazVvPFo2Q?t=48s

In CW or advances I once killed 2 E3's with a Type 5 Heavy in 1 shot - but didntcount for a medal :-(

Three.

 

One was with S-51 GW Panther before the changes to the personal missions. Two have been with the M40/M43 in the past 4 or so months.

Same, I got that medal doing that mission.

 

But I saw few days ago a friendly arty blowing up 3 tanks in one hit. :arta:

I have to say the "Cold Blooded" medal is a more valuable award for an SPG.

 

The only bombardier award I can remember was killing 2 WTF E100s with a single shot in a 3 waffle platoon.

I have just 1, achieved with the type 5. Did the requirements with my IS-7 once too, but that was sadly before the introduction of the medal. Was two single digit hp tanks sitting next to eachother on Karelia in a very close game. I was one shot myself and if I had only killed one, the other would have rounded the corner and killed me and the match would have surely been a loss. Was epic moment.

I have one by pure luck. Shot at a Tiger and it landed behind killing two meds on low hp using him as a shield.

Japanese heavies should be eligible for receiving this medal too since they are basically an arty too and require about as much skill.

They are eligible, but like you say the skill ceiling for it is high.

They are very rare.
Really hard to get with any arty.
I have several.

Generally with arties that have 8 inch or larger guns.

Though the smaller guns can do it.

I got one once in my LeFH!!!
The two tanks that I killed that time were two arties at the end of the game.
Both were trying to hide in the same small space & were touching at the time.

Once you get a few, you do start to watch out for two low health enemy that are close together.
Like another guy said above I did manage two double kills in a game once.

actually I think the crowning achievement for arty is the medal where you have to ram and kill an enemy tank at over 5kph. Got it twice I think. And probably both times from nitwits driving into me :)
