Last night I was playing in my Jagdpanther with the 105mm top gun on Himmulsdorf.

 

Enemy had a 2 man platoon of Skorpion TD's.

 

Spawned in the south, I went to the western road.

The 2 Skorpions passed across the front of me at the other end of the road.

I fired and guess what, it bounced against the side of one of the Skorpions.

That thing has only 1mm of armour.

So what gives?

Just goes to show how messed up this game is.

I was in the other end of similar situation few weeks ago. I shot Mäuschen 4 times and bounced 3 of his shots. It was so strange that I took a screenshot.  https://imgur.com/a/XLcNc2s

Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets
Load up, load up, load up with rubber bullets
I love to hear those convicts squeal
It's a shame these slugs ain't real
But we can't have dancin' at the local county jail

Checked the replay and, yes, it looks like I bloody tracked him and he quickly repaired and kept going.

Since you said 1mm armor, do you mean Scorpion or Skorpion? 

 

Crew usually has a verbal hint of if you did a zero damage crit or bounce. As the turret is 90% gun, as a module vs armor. And the side is mostly just tracks and wheels. Module hit usually a common explanation when you "bounce" on either one of those. As you can check for in the battle report after the game if you hit any modules on it at all.

A Lincoln sausage. Well cooked, as I like them.

Nude of any sauce.

Two days ago I was in Type 5 I shot another Type 5 4 times each time almost fully aimed and each time I went for turret ring and everytime I shot the gun instead. Fout HE shots and 0 dmg. I bounced off of a bc25t with my Grille 15. The list is really long. so when you say this I'm not surprised.
