A glass canon.

If a vehicle have no armor, there is no armor you can damage.

Anything apart the primary armour. Likely you hit some spaced armour, penetrated it an the shell kept flying without hitting the tank hull armour.

Quite possibly. But either way you didn't hit the main hull so it doesn't count.

To be fair, previously that would have probably been a zero-damage critical before. Now it just tells you the same except slightly different. :teethhappy:

Not really related, but when your tank commander's voice says "Great Hit!" on a zero damage critical hit that is rather annoying...

Still one of the best features to have been added in a while, hands down.

It leaves me a lot less confused whenever my shots lands and doesn't do any damage. Which also means I have a better focus on continuing my battle, rather than wondering what just happened.

One of my favourites when I manage to hit a cupola.

Did I miss completely or what? Over penetration?

What is worse than a zero-crit you ask?

Missing the broad side of a barn at medium distance because the shell wanted to taste dirt or air instead.

 

The zero-crit at least had the decency of going almost where I aimed at.

Because destroying a tank doesn't damage their internal module. Hit points go to 0 and that's all. 

The commander says "Critical hit" only when you hit a module and damage it or when an HE fail to pen and deal damage (at least, I think it still says that, as it's a lot I don't use HE on a tank whose language I can understand).

If an AP or similar round pen, you will always have the "Penetration" line, even if you also get a critical hit, in which case you will se the broken gear icon, tho.

The worst is when it's physically impossible for the shell to travel in certain directions because of how close you are but RNG said different. Like when you aim at a lower plate almost point blank but you actually see it bounce off the top of the turret. 

 

HTF does that even happen?

What did I bloody hit, an aerial?

2 shots in a row.

Behind Skeida T56 tracks has nothing?

232mm AP got pulverized when it hit the tracks?
