Progetto seems to be seeing it based on his firing. You should have asked him for his replay.

 

It's not a client bug as such, and rare. I can't even recall the last time I had it. It's simply a network communication issue between your client and the server. It could be a data packet loss issue or even a server hiccup. The last one usually gathers attention from WG if you send in the replay to support. As the most popular one of those, made an entire enemy flank invisible for half a game before the server suddenly did notice.

80 ms ping, low skilled crew?..Anyway, he spotted probably the front center spot of your tank while your viewports didnt have a line of sight at his spottingbox.

 There is no way he didnt get spotted because of game mechanics. How else was that progetto able to shoot him and kill while not spotting for the team?

At first I thought the same, but when the Progetto started shooting the air, I knew something was very wrong.

 

I haven't seen this bug myself, luckily. Wouldn't it be a glitch though? A literal glitch in the matrix. Ignore me, I'm splitting hairs at this point...

If he was alone, sure. But when the tank next to him fires at something that don't hit the ground. It means he did see something, OP did not.

 

I suspect it was the rare server hiccup issue we have rarely seen before. I did try to find the dual video of the one team that just farmed a blind team standing 10m away not spotted to show it. But I can't find it atm.

I did find an old clip of this instance happening to a streamer.

Were just suggestions m8 and tbh I didnt watch untill the progetto came along. Only way is sending this to support I think.

Hmmm very weird, he doesn't even show on the minimap, not even when the Progetto kills him, so there must have been something wrong. Maybe your Type 4 game files were corrupt and the game couldn't render him? Just guessing...

Chances are, it was caused by a broken mod.

Your crew has nothing to do with if it was a case of your vision check points were not in LOS with the Types spotting check points.

 

Could we get your replay of the battle, instead of a video.

Probably this. That hit skin mod looks just horrible. I thought it was a 2k13 thing.

Thats why whenever he spotted me i went forward to spot him back but he couldnt be spotted.

oh wow, when you look at this replay with your client, do you see the tank then? 
He is clearly visible on my client.
