Just got 90% damage on my Pnzr IV from a frontal shot from a Pnzr III. Of course next shot from Stug III killed me. WTF?

Because more than one tank shot at you at the same time?

Were you breeching a hill, exposing the soft juicy underbelly of a (all) tanks?  Did hit hit you on a hatch?  There are vulnerable spots on the front of most tanks, their just alot harder to hit.  Or maybe he was using premium ammo that could punch through your frontal armor.  Some of that premium ammo is massive.

Yeah I could see gold ammo do that. Also you may have only seen the Pz3 shoot at you and at the same time arty hit you from above.

Then again compared to PZ3, Pz IV is a poo wagon and gets killed easily.

It's not a bug; all tanks have a weak spot that will juice you up if it's hit. Like ammo; enough ammo going off and you're either blown to bits or half dead. I managed to kill a Tiger I that way with my Pz IV 75mm long gun. I aimed at the ammo box and it went up in smoke. All other shots shaved a few HP off here and there.

Same happens if you're in heavy high tier TDs and you're hit by arty. Their tops are pretty weak (german at least) and will most likely toast if you're hit by a clean one.

No, I looked after the match. I was hit by two shots, the pIII and the stugIII. I got no damage reported other than my hit points dropped 90%. We were not that far apart and I saw his shot hit me. Then the Stug killed me. Arty was dead already. Not sure exactly where he hit me but obviously there's a weak spot in the Pnzr IV armor.
