If I were next to water, got hit, lit on fire and drove into the water.  Would it extinguish the tank?

 

I’ve never been able to do it.  I almost did just now but I didn’t make it to the water before a second shot did me in.  My whole night is ruined now.

I will do everything in my power to set someone on fire then ram them into a lake to see for myself.  I'd experiment your way, but with over 200 auto-extinguishers, they're on every tank I own.  Every time I use 1, I win 2 more.

Does it burn when you pee?

 

 

On topic that's something I've always wondered.

Pain was on a developer Q&A probably a year and a half ago and mentioned implementing it. I don't recall if it ever happened.

But this IS WG we're talking about, so I'd guess no.

 

Edit:

 

I also recall them saying they were going to fix the VC characters so you could change their voices from the annoying Japanese cartoon squeal to another language. Yep, still waiting on that one.

 

Oh, I also remember the one update that let you see what tier a tank could see without it having a crew in it. Lasted for about a week. Still not fixed.

The tank keeps burning. Someone said, it is illogical. Another said it is logical because water can't extinguish oil fires. I for myself don't know what makes more sense but the game takes variant two and let's you die by burning and drowning simultaneously.

I've also wondered this, actually.

if you think about it though, even if it is a oil fire wouldnt water smother it and put it out if you submerge the entire fire?

I’m pretty sure in real life, if you completely submerged an oil fire underwater it would extinguish.  Most of the armour I’ve dealt with IRL has a halon suppression system which apparently does the trick unless the vehicle has completely gone up in flames.  I know this is just a game of course.  Physics don’t apply here.

I wasn’t trying on purpose.  I was in lakeville trying to sneak down the path like a moron.  Took a hit with full health, starting to brew up nicely and just happened to be close to the waters edge.  I gunned it toward the water hoping to put myself out but took another hit which killed me just as I was almost deep enough for it to work.  I think it was one of those autoloading borsig bastards that got me.  I was in my fury at the time.

 

after 18000 games this is the first time everything lined up (almost) perfectly.  I figure it had to have happened to someone by now.

Auto fire extinguisher = problem solved unless you get set on fire twice.  Then its just a bad day.

surely they'd go out due to lack of air if not from getting wet.

think that's a chemical reation that produces a gas that fuels the ignition. You can see the bubble from the gas it creates rising. Hence the burning......or voodoo.
