Close Reason:


A couple of times now I have run up behind a Stryker or M1A1, crouched (or even lain down), and the MG has shot through the vehicle and hit me. Tonight the last thing I saw was the main gun on an M1A1 clip through the back of the tank before I got a red screen.

I don't think anything can be done about vehicles shooting through themselves.

Because I'm curious:
What were you doing that close to a hostile tank, anyway? There's nothing you can do there except hinder friendlies trying to take it out.

Overpressure effect maybe?

No they shot me - because I tried with a Stryker M2 aswell.

In answer to VKing, I was messing around in the editor.

Tested with different APCs and tanks, the open fire when you're behind a vehicle but can't shoot through it.

Your problem might have happened by accident.
