I know that but i prefer the eastern front..
There is always at least 1 server with a decent population playing I'd say, but join
They host a fightnight every friday night! All RO maps as well.

I need tank combat

Here are technical data of most tanks :

Then there are some things you learn by playing.
-some weak or medium cannon got a flatter trajectory than heaviest ones.
(ie : with T34-76 we don't neet to adjust sight for distances under 600m or it will fly over the target)

-AP (armor piercing) and HE shells do NOT have the same trajectory, so don't aim the same

-try to put your vehicle in angle (10:30/01:30 for IS2/Tiger and 11h/01h for the others if I remember well). It will increase chances to reflect your opponent's projectile.

-Destroying tracks is a challenge : direct shot on it doens't disable it. It requires to aim between the 3rd and 4rth wheel (Panzer 4 chassis) or between 2nd & 3rd for tanks with bigger wheels.
(I call wheel those which are at ground level). If you can aim those spots under opponent's tank, it can also hit (it works even with AT rifle).

-On long range maps, against static target
Keep in mind you can aim with sight, then un-hatch and fire, then use goggles to see projectile flight. It is pretty useful to make adjustments.

And use hills, trees, houses, and all maps elements as a possible cover,
because environment is not destructible.

Ah,thanks but one question,How do you know the distance of an enemy tank? is it on the scope or just an estimation?
Nox Sep 2, 2013 @ 2:42am 
I did not have found any telemetre, so estimation is the only source.

I will suggest you to go on fun map server to play Ljubjankow-schiessbahn (or something like that). Once you take the elevator, you got a garage with all standard tanks and shooting field with all tanks as targets and distance written 100m by 100m.

(If suggest before to join to download the map on website, in "Mapowisko" section. They host loads of custom maps)
