Am I the only one experiencing getting my ammo rack damaged nearly every game? Seems like each hull shot has like 50% chance of damaging the ammo rack. Legit this tank isn't even enjoyable. Seriously I have been ammo rack damaged multiple times a game even. Is this a common thing that all centurion tanks have?

Pretty much yes.

I seem to recall the Centurion model being quite incorrect (interior modules wrongly placed, tank far too big) from the time it was put into game, not sure if it's ever been corrected

That is a tier 9 tank with all the top bits in it, the Centurion 7/1

Only the gun has been downgraded to a stock gun for T8

 

Use stuff like safe stowage in the loaders skills to mitigate your ammo rack weakness

 

The 5/1 needs to be played right, but it's one of the best T8 mediums you can get, play it right and it's a bit of a credit making monster

The ammo rack runs down the left side of the driver, finishing at about knee level on the 

real Centurion, in WOT the drivers of British tanks use ammo racks for foot rests.

Yes, Centurions have ammo racks all over the place.

Yes but I think if you go hull down with it as much as possible then people won't ammorack you nearly as often. I think it's in fact a really powerful tank. Give it a couple more tries hiding that hull and I think you will have a much better and more fun experience with it as well.
