Safe storage for a crew skill and wet ammo rack for equipment.

For some reason I can’t remember the side, but the ammo rack is located in the forward hull.  Look at the armor/mod profile and see what side it’s actually on.  When your in a match always favor the opposite side the ammo is stored on.  That will also help.

This....I’m sure the ammo rack is on the right just above the tracks half way down the tank...under the turret

ya, the ammo rack can be penned from the front (had a tank pen me earlier through the upper plate and detonated my ammo rack) and covers half the right side. so can not really favor a side that much x.x

Now that you mentioned it, I remember ammo racking one Mac tank on its introduction day. It was my first KD I saw in game and it was right in front of me and I was astound by the ugliness so much that I ammo racked it...I came, I saw, I ammo racked..

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

I'll maintain a premium crew for each nation, but even though my Chinese crew has the safe storage, prevent maintenance, and all that repair stuff trained, my 112 is still the mayor of Ammo Rack City. The skills work well on the Type 59, but oof, that 112.

Just to let you know I think it gets worse on the 111 1-4.  I swear if the turret is slightly over angled I get ammo rack damage.
