They may figure it out as they go though when reviewing tank weak spots more and more. EDIT: If you do a post about it though it may be best to mention in detail which tanks seem to utilize spaced armor the most and where at, like with the Super Pershing.
TragicLoss: Will do. I will edit this post when I have my bit ready for you to add in. Edited: Red - Spaced armor Blue - Shoot here Yellow - Shoot to destroy tracks Spaced armor is found on all tanks in the form of tracks (the yellow area only) or a mantlet. These areas have two layers of armor while require a shell to pass through both to do damage. If you shoot at the yellow area, this will destroy the tracks, and if your gun has enough penetration, may damage the tank. For tanks such as the T28E6 Super Pershing, the spaced armor is located at the front and partially covers the sides of the turret as pictured here: In order to penetrate something like the Super Pershing you must aim for the usual lower glacis, the "underbelly", or the area just above the spaced armor where the commander's hatch is located. Other examples of spaced armor on tanks the Pz. IV: TL;DR: Don't shoot the red areas, shoot the blue areas for damage, and the yellow to destroy the tank's tracks.
