Uncle Landa's tips how to make tank commanders sad
By Landa
If you had some problems with T-34 and want to punish all these tank noobs with your PZB-784,- welcome here, young tanks hunter! Here are 10 pics which will help you in your struggle.
Back armor plate.
You can see such picture pretty rare, but if you do, don't be nervous and spend your ammo wisely.

Although originally tank's back side is the weakest one, in RO2 it's the best protected zone actually. There are no bugs here, so all that you can do is just to knock off his track(-s). Try to make him turn to you with his sides or to flank him after demobilizing.
Here is the best and the most important part.
If you still remmeber the difference between different kinds of angles from your math lessons, then it's time to use your knowledges!
The idea is simle: find the best angle (it's 90 degrees) and shoot in his engine (through the side's armor plate) or to blast him with his own ammunition.
Now, look here:

How does a normal fire position looks like you may ask? Here it is!

The worst part
And if we have seen tank's back and board sides, it's time to talk about it's front side.
Although originally, T-34's front side is considered as the best-protected tank zone, in RO2, situation here differs from reality. I won't talk about shooting in tank's bug zone, but the thing you should know is:

From theory to practice

In a real fight
And now, time to think again how it looks in a real combat. Technically, everything is the same, just there are 31+ enemy soldier who will shot you down as soon as he will be able to do that. So, don't let him do that! Loosing the time for running from the spawn to your position will turn into someone's death and loosing 1-3 objectives. So try to stay alive with enough ammo as long as it possible.

The young PZ grenadier training is overed.
Good luck, soldier! See you on a battlefied!

But sometimes, nooby tankcoms see AT nade in your hands whie you're running towards to him, and he's so scared, that doesn't shoot but tries full speed to drive back (funny, how 30 tons machine is scared with 1 man and tries to survive :D ).

Like this game, cause although the game we play in is just an artificially created set of pixels, emotions and characters of real people, who play around us, their individuality, their behaviour and their ideas, thoughts, attitude to their "duty" (cause RO is a roleplay) are so representative, so different.. :)

About priceless moments..
Had such situation several times:
slowly, you crawl to the tank through piles of garbage with AT-grenade, thinking he doesn't see you. But then, when you are still about 3 meters away from the tank, he turns the gun in your face (which is stupid in this moment, of course :D ). Awkard pause.. He is thinking, to blast you on pieces right now or to save HE shell and shoot with MG down..
In this moment, you understand that you were not right and begin to wave your gun let-right-left-right, showing "pls, no, God, nooo :'( " and he begins to wave it up and down, like "yes, time to pay". But then- with his gun, he shows you to run away. You just like a sad kid get up and run away from the tank, while he continues to shoot others around you but not you. Btw, once it was REM (from NCS clan, Poland). Good man :)

I usually just go and alluh akbar them with an AT, its really fun to see how they chase you with the head

2. if he is getting realy b#tchy and you can't flank and die, 2 smoke nades in front of him usually help. So or he will come closer and die in motion/cause of TNT, or he will find a worse position, or you will have a chance to draw his boards in motion.
3. On Druzhina, right side is better, although it has only ~2 good pos there and pretty opened. So now i prefer to stay down D all the time, waiting for motion of our friend.

But when he enters the town and far from ammo (like near F/G or H, J, L, M, N) - agree, that corner shooting is the best you can do here in a short period of time perspective.

Well, generally, corner shooting is effective, agree. But there are some moments (exclusions) here, like:
1.Druzhina. First 5 objects (A/B-C-D/E). As soon as our tank stops near the ammo (in A zone, or on C), the effect of all kinds of shooting which you make trying to kill his crew (driver's hatch, turret's corner and so on) have 0 effect . If you kill 1, okay, even 2 of tank's crew, they will respawn inside again and all damage you did will be fixed in the same time. So that's why i say to kill him in motion: it's much easier, he can't spot you during this time and you can easily kill him being in safety (220-280 meters away) with almost no aiming. But when he stops on ammo- well, only 90 degrees or TNT can help. So logic is to kill him before he begin to kill others.

I agree some maps have no room for that corner shot, but it really depends on the driver and if he does not have good enemy awareness even on bridges you can land corner shots 50% of the time

Really in my experience as AT gunner role, if the tanker is dominating your team getting 60 kills in ten minutes yeah corner shots are impractical as the tank will just blow you apart time and time again.

So this is where your tactics come in, annoying the tank and tanking side shots and having him retreat, but also flanking the tank isnt always so easy especialy on bridges.

Once I teamed up with a sniper and machine gunner and went on the far left (defenders) and even after the bridge was taken i still got that tank destroyed.

To summarise this mess i guess you could say have support and dont let the tank see you.
