So, as we all know, spotting system works perfectly, but sometimes (more often than not) it provide you with magical moments when a Bobject that sits 160m in front of you just vanish for no reason. And before everyone say: replay or it didn`t happen... here it`s the link: http://wotreplays.eu...6a22e3d6fa46923 (min: 10:30)! 
PS: I hope you won`t say that the few leaves hanging from that tree counts as a double bush...

Are you saying that game mechanics do not allow for that?  Could you perhaps give us a detailed breakdown of his possible max camo and your actual view range?  Because 160m seems entirely within normal operation of the spotting system to me.

There is no RNG with spotting, it's entirely down to camo vs view range providing there are no solid objects in the way.

You did saw the link for the replay, right? You want me to describe the incident?

That the bush you hid behind might be longer than 15 m and as such it could be that it also counted as additional camo for the enemy (and he did vanish when you were behind the shrubbery, not in it.

 

So while the spotting system might have its peculiarities is seems to work.

There might be refresh times. Perhaps the system only refreshes every few seconds and either the Obj. or the OP had a slight internet delay?

I want you to describe what you think should have happened according to known and documented game mechanics.  You must have done this in order to say it is broken.

There are, and these are known too and it's not "every few seconds".
