I can't recall ever penning either of the cupolas, no matter if the shot is dead on target and has 330mm pen. Is there some [edited] witchcraft involved in this or should I not even bother trying to pen the cupolas?

 

Hell, I think I've only ever penned the LFP 2-3 times and again it was with with 300+ pen ammo.

 

I know the T95 is supposed be nutty strong frontally, but I didn't think it was supposed to be flat out untouchable?

It will be down to rng of course but those areas are pennable. Obviously not a good idea if they aren't distracted.

I dunno, is it just APCR that's the issue. Is the curvature too much? Because I have hit the cupola DEAD centre right at the base, where it should be flattest so many times with my Strv, and... nope.

Only shoot the left one(from your view), the right side is more troll. lfp has to be the middle if not angling and the side closer to you if he is.

If I have no other choice but to fight T95 frontally I always use HE, again I wouldn't go and fight T95 frontally in the first place

 

This match happened a few days back, and the guy was already near dead

 

 

EDIT - Now I noticed that I blocked prem round from T95 in a M103.... well this alone has made my day

Nah they are actually pretty easy frontally. As above, the left hand side cupola (your left as it faces you) or the LFP. I use gold as soon as I see one, but once you pen them a couple of times they tend to panic and stuff themselves up by over extending etc.

 

If you allow them to chug out into the open to chase you, you can usually score a bit of assistance if you have a semi decent arty.

Track them and run away. Or flank and spank. Same turn speed as the JT (used to be when it hit 12kph down hill)

 

Shoot the LFP when below, turret hatch when above. Or just spam HE at its gun.

If you have high ping and the t95 is moving then you are better off not taking the shots on the cupolas. will most probably miss. better of disengaging and trying to flank.

actually no when i get shot by HE on gun it usually did 0 dmg to my t95(just bought and ground it out in on track). With type 4 heavy i found that shooting the tracks or below it did 400ish dmg, so i reckon that's a better idea and will also crit more than just knocking gun out.

Probably not - least some games every shot seems to pen mine - however, I seem to bounce everything off them when they're the enemy...
