without their lower plate and being on equal ground as them i cannot find a single spot i can pen on the super conqueror.

 

turret ring = no pen, using standard or premium.

cupola = no pen, using standard or premium.

 

can someone help give me tips on fighting them if you cannot see their lower plate and are on equal or lower ground?

Rounds with approximately 300 mm's of pen should go through, when hitting right under the gun. As might be expected, it is  only viable at point blank range. At longer distances I prefer to simply spam HE at the weak roof armour.

i seem to bounce even when point blank, i was in my IS-7 face hugging a Super Conqueror and even with the 303mms of premium i could not pen under the gun.

 

i do think i will add HE to my tanks though. most of my tanks have no HE on them since i never usely use it.

HE is useful ammo type, I have it in most tanks, except low-caliber guns (under 75mm) and vehicles that have very limited ammo capacity, like T57 Heavy.

I just shoot the cupola if the turret is the only thing sticking out.  I've honestly not had any problems penning the cupola on the tank, though, especially using premium rounds.  If I fire a couple shots and I can't pen anything or even track the tank, I'll disengage and relocate to another spot to shoot at it from or move on to a different target.  The longer you linger around there without doing damage to it, the more likely it's going to just nickel and dime your tank to death.  Know what I mean?  Also, as mentioned above, try shooting some HE at them.  Sometimes it's not to really do alot of damage to them, but do just do "some" damage to them.  That way it gets their attention and they'll usually try to relocate and that will often give you your window to hit them in some vulnerable spots while they're moving.

I also sling HE at their turret cupola's. It's usually enough to make them move / fall back out of their strong defensive position so I can move forward / maneuver into a better spot to engage them.

If they are locked on you then it can be difficult, the main thing you can do is try and get their turret / hull out if line by going off centre, then you can hope that they don't turn everything to match and you can hit the sides of one or the other.

The roof line can be exploited otherwise, or you have to wait for their turret to change angle.

I too have never had much luck shooting at the Conqueror's (and S. Conq.) cupola. I have had some luck shooting at the turret ring right under the gun however.

I struggle with the cupola sometimes. If I can't flank I usually try and wait for a rear/side turret shot

Flank around them and shoot them in the [edited]or go kill someone else. Trying to run head on is stupid, use your brain. Use tactics.
