Summary: Turned out crew of the tank doesn't take any damage from explosives (artillery shells, grenades, etc.). This counts for all tanks and APCs - BLUFOR and OPFOR ones.
How to reproduce:
Use my repro mission and press 0-0-1 to spawn the shell on top of the tank.

Expected Result: Crew dies from the shockwave from explosion next to their tank, not to mention direct hit to it.
Observed Result: Crew is untouched, it's looking like they are taking same damage as when they are turned in.

Issue reproducible with 1.59 and latest beta. Didn't use any mods.

Basically any exposed units from any vehicle (e.g. open SOV, Jackal) don't suffer from explosions, hence you can drop a rifle grenade on top of a roof-less jeep and the crew isn't particularly bothered by it.

Same issue as #15289, #12089 and similar to #15981 I would guess.
