Tank tracks are not weak points in Fh2. that is an urban legend. The Panther A has a weak spot on the lower gun plate though.

Why don't you try it and see what you get?  You might be surprised.

Which tank? Most of these claims are unfounded, however I know of a couple cases where it can happen. But it needs to be verified before being reported. The "tank_tracks" material however is used for wheel - ground collision, and has nothing to do with projectile vs tracks.

As mentioned, on Panther, center of front facing tread.

from what I see you're hitting the side armour instead of tracks.

So basically the best way to kill a Konigstiger is to hit its turret repeatedly with bazookas or a side shot from 90mm HVAP?. Are there any diagrams that show the weaker armour sections of the KT available?

Also, regarding the panther does  that frontal track shot actually work for a one hit kill from a 76mm?

Any tips for fighting the Konignstiger and Panther would be hugely appreciated.

Cheers

No.

Tips: hit them in the rearwheels in a straight angle (90 degrees - or zero degrees, depending how you count), always a nice amount of damage dealt that way. Panther dies in 1 shot from a short distance that way, KT survives first shot, but won't do that a second time.

My screenshots above show 76mm one-shotting a Panther from the front.

I always ask a few questions about cases like yours :)

- Where did you hit it exactly?
- How did you know the Panther was 100% health?
- How do you rule out a lucky shot?
