Why is this not a feature? The number of times in light tanks (especially the Brit lights and I imagine the Rheinmetall Flipwagon) I'm hugging a rock then rolled even at slow speeds on to its side is annoying. I've seen team mates also stuck on their side in no mans land or the other side of the map. Why can't we use a repair kit to get the tank right side up.

If a repair kit can allow you to repair a gun, track or other damage in 2 seconds I don't see why it couldn't be used to flip a tank.

 

Maybe even go as far as to allow a kit to teleport you to a space close to where people get stuck (though I think this might be more difficult)

 

Make it so WG!

Good idea, might I add and small time delay to pressing the repair button and getting flipped back.  Something like acount down that you can see.

Make a consumable that costs 200 gold and when used, it teleports you behind enemy arty, you kill it, and then it teleports you back from where you used it. Only activates after arty focuses you 3 times in a row.

Sounds more like World of Warcraft.

Why can't we just shoot friendly tanks to turn them over, since friendly fire is off.

Great idea! But what happens if the enemy overturns you? You can't just repair your way out... 

Also this:

 goes in line with double barreled tanks having boost when firing both guns backwards. But that would mean modeling the explosions, i'm not sure that's so easy to implement...

Just give it a 10 second delay

I think this is a very interesting idea. No promises, but I`ll pass it further!

I dislike the idea.

 

Setting aside the fact some tanks seem excessively unstable, what is the point of going through the motion of adding the possibility to have your tank flip upside down, both as a risk of careless driving and as the result of an heavier tank crushing or pushing a lighter one, only to have it be reverted via the repair kit. 

 

Why not a SCUBA consumable for the tanks that drown?

Repair kits have cooldown so there's still a possibility to flip your tank (and die) while it's unavailable. Also, flipping your tank and using repair kit puts you at disadvantage because you likely took some damage while flipping your tank and your repair kit is now on cooldown (so no risky plays for 90 s).

The WVs are not unstable, rarely flip (never seen one ever on its side) ... so either give regular tanks the ability to right themselves or give the WVs the same physics
