Ive played 25 games in a row in this lt now, and in every 25 games, my tank has been put in fire in first shot, every 25 times are an shot in my frontal end, not the side or backend.

Is this tank made to burn only, or am i the most unlucky person in the world.

It does not matter, if its an light tank that hit me with ap shot for 80 dmg og an td for 400, it stats burning every single time.......

Replace Food with Automatic Fire Extinguisher and you will only be set on fire 1:100 games...

I dare you to upload each of those 26 battles, since I do not believe you went up in flames every battle.

Practice the skill to not get shot, to use camo to Your advantage etc.

It will greatly improved your WR and wn8 if you care about those.

Yeah, the issue is that the fuel tank is right below the turret and it's huge, so pretty much any shot in your rear will set you on fire. It's very annoying and the only way to fix it is to replace food with automatic fire extinguisher.

Based on your Tier X tanks you are more a TD/SPG player..So me thinks you really need to learn how to play lights.

... and since the engine is in the front next to the driver,

getting hit there bears the risk of fire also.

 

PS: I rarely use fire extinguisher, mostly I go with food and fire ext directive.

Not asking for screenshots but replays. There has to be something causing it. I have both the 1357 and the 1357GF and hardly get set on fire.

Had the same experience. Ran coffee for one game, first game, set on fire twice.

Ran auto extinguishers ever since, and even then I'm regularly getting set on fire. Not uncommon for it to happen every game, in my experience.

Its one of my most played tanks with almost 5K battles:playing:, find it gets on fire pretty rarely. I don't bother with fire extinguisher and run food instead. I do have the crew at 100% firefighting though.

The engine is in the front but you shouldn't really be facing towards the enemy in this tank anyway.

 

If you're going to a ridge line try to hand break turn so the back and the turret is peaking over the ridge, a lot less of the tank is exposed plus if you have to run away you're already facing the right direction.

This is what I use and I can't say that I've noticed a drama with being set on fire. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen, but..... Good shout on crew training for fire extinguishing, though, folks.

It's not the engine catching fire, it's the *HUGE* fuel tank right under the turret that only have 175 health each, so basically any shot that does more then 175 damage has a good chance of setting it on fire.
