good evening everyone, I'm facing a mission of the obj279e operation

 

the mission requires 30 critical damage to the internal modules of the enemy tanks in 10 games, a mission clearly and easily doable by doing 3 internal critical damage per game

 

I tried, with little success, bc25 - lor40t and amx 50b, same thing for tvp tier X

 

having had little success I decided to try the heavy AMX M4 51 with the 120mm cannon and say with success compared to the autoloader reaching about 27 critical damage in 9 games ... to the 10th my computer decided to BSOD during the match..mission was resetted when I log in again into the game ... :angry:

 

now my question is this:
is the mod [hitskin] that is legal or illegal to display the internal modules of the opposing tanks?
would I risk sanctions in using it?
I assume that being in modpack aslain is legal, but not being a big user of mods I would like your advice.

OP a question, do the French have a arty line?

 

As to the hitskin mod, as far I know it's legal BUT imoo it shouldn't be legal.

I don't use them myself. But they are legal as they are only skins just like historical skins you can also get in the mods section. It is nothing like the illegal mod which actually shows the internal modules.

Below in the spoiler is illegal....

Hitskins are legal but they will have you aiming at impenetrable parts of tanks because there is a module behind it.

 

Doing internal module damage is down to luck anyway, hitting one isn't difficult but most of the time they get a saving throw.

 

Large calibre guns are better for the job as they do more module damage so if you do hit and you don't get a saving throw then you are more likely to do enough module damage to actually damage the module.

 

And as someone hinted.  Play arty, job done.

​Well back then it was added in more or less every mod pack. The fair play rules have changes a fair bit since then. 

 

 

As of OP and his mission? Find a high tier with high HE pen. I know most did it with the Standard B, as it had a 3 round burst with 105 HE pen. I know of one that did it with Sheridan derp or the high tier Biritsh tanks with HE. As they too have over 100 HE pen.

bad response, in the sense that I have finished all the mission of both campaigns that require them ..
I see no reason to continue playing them and destroying other people's games

If it is in a modpack which has been regulated and passed then it is legit, I used one for a while but had to reinstall everything as the file size for that alone was huge, don't use one now, but anyone who is below 43% should be allowed to use them. But bear in mind RNG, you can fully aim on tanks, and still miss, especially so in the crappy KV2, plus the shell you  use do not always guarantee you damage.

no, and I did not use it, I completed the mission
mine was a question thrown there

not knowing if it was 100% legal I wanted to avoid it
and then the mods are not so interesting to use

Totally irrilevant mod nowadays since every shoot it's a critical hit at something, sometimes also at 2 modules/crew simultaneously.

Then in that case do not ever complain about low level players, even when you know the places to hit there is no guarantee of damage, I have used it and it made no difference, I run clean now
