Currently hunting a Bombardier achievement, I bought a SU-14-1 because it has tremendous alpha damage at tier 7, 1850 dam a shot is more then enough to kill 2 tanks at one if very close range. Anyone have any other suggestions of what a good tank/arty is to use when trying to get a Bombardier achievement?

It's M40/43 and above, and the GW Tiger and above.  Bombardier also requires the right map (e.g. where multiple tanks stop to snipe from the same position [TD hills on Murovanka]).

That's a tough one to try for.  The enemy has to be co-operating, politely grouping damaged or weak tanks together.  I suppose an ideal scenario would be the T92 firing gold and aiming at a chokepoint or common hideout.

I got my one and only bombadier medal in my T82 using the 105mm. I derped a T18 and a PZ1c (I think that's what they were) as they were coming down the central hill on Karelia. I fired a snap shot at them, hit between, and blew them both up (they were both already damaged).

Basically wait for two low health tanks to bunch up a choke point or corner and blast'em! Also, if possible, use HE-Premium, as your splash damage drop off is much less severe.

M12, M40/M43, M53/M55, T92 are all good arty for that.

guy in our clan has something like 12k battles, including many in arty, and derp TDs and has never gotten one.  new guy to the clan gets one on like his 3rd battle in the Su-100.

 

I've come close with the SU-152 flinging HE, but left something like 40 hp on one of the two tanks that were side by side (they were both low health to being with)

Got mine with the PZ4 derp at the east choke point on pearl river.  Smoked 2 tier 4 open top TDs sitting right next to each other with one shot.

Too bad the wiki gun database is out of date:

I wish I had known about this tool.

This medal has a lot more to do with luck than skill or intent, you have to wait for the ideal situation to present itself and you can do nothing to increase the chances of it happening except actually playing tanks that have massive splash. Specifically trying for this medal will only give you heartache. Just forget about it and one may eventually come.

Didn't know about the medal til I got one in my SU-14-1.

 

To date my only two bombardier medals were attained using that soviet 203mm gun from hell.

I got one in the Obj 261.  Got multiple kills with the Hummel and S-51, but that was before there was a Bombardier Ribbon.  Its a tough one to get.

Went a couple years without getting one, then got 2 in just a couple days. lol.

First one was quite by accident with a tier 8 French arty.  Only 1 of the tanks was lit.  I didn't even know the second one was there!

Second one I saw 2 damaged Hellcats sitting close together and I just thought 'why not!'  Loaded a premium HE round for bigger splash radius and got em both!:izmena::trollface:
