So i play my Conqueror recently, and enemy patton shoot me in track, destroying my track and my gun.... So i asking myself, how the [content removed] he can destroy track and gun in same time lol :facepalm:

After that, he shoot me once more, and destroy my track again but this time with track he destroy my ammunitios, with one hit... So how he can destroy my ammunition by hitting my in the track, when ammunition stays in cupola.

 

Bypassing the profanity filter.

Without a replay to watch it is nigh on impossible to be certain of what happened. Can you supply a replay?

British ammo racks are just like the Russians. Below the turret itself, which means, they can be reached by shooting your lower plate or either your tank sides.

Track & gun seems like a trick shot, but he shot from above & his shell went a bit off, it can be done, needs replay to verify tho. More likely it were two different shots from different tanks striking at pretty much the same time.

 

The track & ammorack shot is pretty plausible & even normal imo, see image below:

White is ammorack & is behind the tracks. 

Note: cupola houses commander & the ammo icon in turret is actually the loader, not ammo. Conqueror doesn't store ammo in turret.

You do realise that most tanks store ammo in the hull as well, right?

And for the conqueror, if modelled correctly in-game, it should be somewhat like this:

With ammo rack 1 possibly being in the hull and ammo rack 5 definitely being in the hull, and near the tracks on the left side of the vehicle.

Well that's unusual. Any hope for a replay?

After penetration, the shell can bounce around inside the tank, sometimes leading to weird module damage combos.

True, but more things can make more sense when you realize that ammo is not stored in the turret alone on most tanks. And that shells can chance trajectory after hitting spaced armor, modules or armor. As in hitting the gun, then past it into the mantle low down at a high angle, bounce down into the hull to destroy the engine or ammo rack. 

 

Or as pointed out above, inside the tank depending on how he hits the module. As after he hits armor, the travel time, and how far inside the tank he can go is decided by the caliber. The bigger the caliber, the longer the travel time to hit something else, or the other side to "bounce" off.
