Explain me how he managed to destroy me by shooting me in the tracks with just APCR. If its up to me I'd say he paid tons of money to this game and WG buffed his guns (server side). Maybe a hacker? Who knows...

 

Edit: I forgot that this tank is not russian so maybe that is why?

Three words: Server side calculations.

 

Your conspiracy theories and hacker blames are just silly, read up a bit on how this game works.

 

Those hitscanners are not perfect since lag exists and replays aren't a perfect representation of the battle. I'd wger the enemy simply hit your lfp and penned there.

the shell can ricochet the outer spaced armor into the hull armor again, its a stupid rng shot but it happens yes

Could be he snagged your track slightly on the way. But the information you have provided isn't enough to reah a conclusion, not even a replay. Only one shelltracer that isn't necessarily accurate.

 

But "explain that then" is not how discussion works. That is simply an "argument from ignorance". I can't explain this so therefore my conclusion is true.

so far im aware its only possible to the t95, as it has quite thick sideskirts and pretty weak side armor. other tanks either have thicker sidearmor and/or thin sideskirts to the shot would pen the sideskirt and not ricochet off. 

 

just bad luck but can imagine it being pretty frustrating

Actually no, that was not what you were thinking at all:

Fairly obvious you weren't thinking at all, just blabbering nonsense.

You are not alone (spookynoises) ... and yes, each of those links to a separate incidence of a similar thing happening.

This occurrence is pretty unique to the T95, as people pointed out above. What we see in action is the ricochet mechanism &  overmatch mechanism. The outer skirt is 101mm armor & due to the shallow angle it ricochets off the sideskirts. Then it can hit either 40mm armor or even 25mm armor (it is above the tracks). The angle of impact on the screenshot indicates a ricochet could possibly lob it into the 25mm plate & due to triple overmatch it automatically penetrates (with enough pen leftover)

It can also hit the 40mm armor plate & due to double overmatch mechanism, the shell gets a normalisation bonus on impact angle, so doesn't need as much pen to penetrate. 

PS: if the impact mod isn't 100%, it is also possible it went through the tracks & hit the 25mm armor above tracks directly, causing an autopen due to triple overmatch

 

Note that it still needs a bit of luck, need the right angles to hit & ricochet on the outer skirt from inside. Does not work with HEAT because too much spaced armor to go through. However AP can do it too, due to the bigger normalization bonus it gets.

But I have seen this situation posted before, so it isn't too rare of an occurrence. If something like this happens, I suggest to relocate or even turn the tank slightly, as it really is a case of a tank shooting you from the correct angle & turning your tank even slightly can already make it stop working.

Edit; r00barb posted the links to previous discussions about this.
