Might be a noobish/selfish/stupid/pointless thing but I really would love to know how did this happen. Spotted while driving a bit forwards behind a bush and shot at by 3 or 4 heavy tanks probably 200m away and they don't get spotted?

you got spotted from the middle, and then the heavys from the other side of that hill could shoot you. Can you see through that bush? no, so you cant see the enemy who are ~200m infront of you AND have more then that one bush as cammo

The one spotting you didn't shoot, the ones which did shoot were too far away for you to spot.  Simples.

 

You don't even get close enough to the bush to see through it.

Spotted on the way up, probably by an enemy light tank in some bushes up there (it is possible to do, and I have done it many time).

 

Then enemy heavies camp their side of the hill and shoot. The bushes on that hill are very very dense, so they add ALOT of camo. You can hide more or less any tank in the game in them and require almost proxy spotting to be seen if not shooting.

 

To combat that, you should move up to the right of where you went. There are some nice bushes there which gives you camo from enemy view so you can spot enemies instead.
