Don't you know, they store the extra shells up there. :trollface:

Could've been worse.
Years ago, while playing Black Prince, I sniped 110's cupola who was above me so the shot itself was quite ridiculous. I also set him on fire somehow.
As of more recent times, a couple of days ago I was shot in lower plate ( FV215b ) and my gun broke. It was the first hit I took in this battle.

My guess is, the shell ricocheted off the commander's chin and went straight into the back of the turret, where it upset the natural balance of your ammo loadout, and as a result it's taking the shell people longer to decide who to shove into the gun breach, plus they seem to be tired from all the arguing which seems to further increase reload time...

 

 

...this just goes to show, I shouldn't be writing posts, or anything for that matter, at 1AM. :rolleyes:

Yea I'd also say, only explanation might be a ricochet inside the turret, the shot somehow bounced down to hit the ammorack.

It is said WOT doesn't have internal ricochets, but I'd love to understand how this sort of damage is possible if a shot only ever travels in straight line once it penetrates a tank. Unless, of course, the penetration isn't actually a straight line but a curve. In that case, I do believe there is a nice ammo rack below and behind the cuppola.

Well I've seen Conquerors get hit in the commander's hatch resulting in an engine fire... :D

 

Question OP: Was the Centurion above you, or below you? Or level? And, now that I've had a closer look, how come I see multiple penetration points?

Upon closer inspection of the replay I've realized that centurions shot did indeed penetrate the turret roof. My best guess is that front of the commander cupola has some spaced armor at the front and when centurion scored a hit there the shell changed angle and bounced off slopped side of the cupola into the back. That being said, I honestly didn't know that Renegade had any spaced armor on commander cupola.

Look at its armor model: https://tanks.gg/tank/renegade/model

 

Taking the first hit location into consideration, that seems to be exactly what happened, apart from the spaced armor bit, it's just angled sharply. Awfully unlucky.
