This guide will stop at tier 7, unless by popular demand tier 6 and lower are requested.
Before we begin, I shall define some terms.
I will use my Tiger II to explain these terms. Stabsfeldwebel Egger transferred for failure to the Maus Leutnant Knispel is honoured his new tank can be used for this demonstration.
Spoiler                     
Upper Glacis: The upper frontal hull armour plate of a tank.
Lower Glacis: Lower frontal hull armour on a tank, usually weaker.
Mantlet: The armour section surrounding the gun. Usually strongest part of a tank. (IS-7's mantlet armour reaches approx. 350mm!)
MG Mount: Location where a machine gun is mounted on a tank for local defence against infantry. Usually have weaker armour.
Cupola: Dome shaped structure used by commander/crew to enter/exit tank. Some cupolas have observation slits for the commander. Usually have no armour.
Viewport: Device used by crew members to see the outside world, may/may not result in hull damage depending on the tank.
Upper Superstructure: Some German tank destroyers have two different armour values, one for the hull and one for the upper part.
Above are explained in the screenshots.
Stabsfeldwebel Oberleutnant Otto Carius demonstrates superstructure!

Now that we got the useless stuff out of the way...
Weaknesses will be hull then turret.
THIS GUIDE ASSUMES YOU ARE FACING THE TANK FROM THE FRONT.
Left side assumes your left, and the opposing tank's right side, and vice versa.
Tanks lower than tier 10 will have turret weaknesses for upgraded and stock turrets.
SPECIAL NOTICE FOR SPACED ARMOUR OBJECT 704/OBJECT 268/IS-3/IS-6/IS-8/IS-7/GW Typ E/E-100/Maus
With the new armour group updates, OBJECT 704/OBJECT 268/IS-3/IS-6/IS-8/IS-7/GW Typ E/E-100/Maus gained new spaced armour. This means some areas on the front and rear are falseboards, if you penetrate there, it will do no damage unless the second set of armour is penetrated. The falseboards actually outlines the real tank armour layout. IS-3/704/IS-7 have parts of their side armour at 60 degrees. What this means is that their side armour are exceptionally tough. IS-3 and 704's side armour above the tracks are nearly 180mm, IS-7's side armour there is greater than a Type 59's frontal hull. If a shell hits there, it will penetrate some spaced armour first, then hit the sloped side armour, making penetration incredibly tough. Instead, hit the armour behind the tracks, those are only 90mm/100mm at 90 degrees from horizontal. IS-8 also has spaced armour, but it is significantly smaller than the IS-3s.
GW Typ E and E-100 had spaced armour from when they were introduced. Penetrating spaced armour from the front or rear does no damage. Spaced armour on the side hull significantly increases protection.
SPECIAL NOTICE FOR FRENCH TANKS
Spoiler                     
Tier X
Heavy Tanks
Maus
Hull: Lower glacis, there is a small rectangular block that can be hit and penetrated easily by tier 10 guns as long as the Maus driver does not angle his hull. Ammo rack is located under the turret.
Turret: Shoot the round side beside the mantlet. Armour here is 220mm rounded. As long as the Maus driver does not turn his turret away and you have a good non angled shot, it will go through with tier 10 guns. It is possible to try to shoot the lower rounded part of the turret to attempt to ricochet it into the upper engine deck. However this is unreliable. Ammo rack is located in the rear half the turret.
E-100
Hull: Lower glacis, guns with ~200mm penetration can hit through if it is unangled. Do not shoot the lower glacis if you are within 50m of the E-100, as it will be too angled (50 degrees) for you to penetrate. Instead, use the turret weakness. Ammo rack is in the rear portion of the turret, similar to Maus.
Turret: There is an extremely flat part of the frontal turret where the turret mates with the chassis. Armour there is unknown, presumably 240mm, but has no vertical angle. Frontal turret of the E-100 is very tough, try not to hit it.
IS-4
Hull: Lower glacis plate at medium/long range, where the spare track  links are located. Ammo rack is located behind the headlights (hmm...).  Shooting it at close range results in bounce/non penetration due to  angle. Lower hull can be penetrated by a Tiger I. Driver's plate is being buffed, but the driver's slit itself has no armour. Only good at point blank ranges.
Turret: Commander's cupola on the right side. BL-10, T7, and Pak44/2  can penetrate frontal turret if you shoot the rounded area beside the  mantlet. But avoid it in any case, as the mantlet was buffed, even APCR no longer penetrates the mantlet. Ammo rack is located in the rear right of the turret. (If  turret rear is facing you.)
IS-7
Hull: Lower glacis plate at medium range, do not shoot it at close range, you will be shooting down at it and it will be highly angled. Lower hull now needs around 235mm average penetration to do damage. Avoid shooting the seam of the V, where it is extremely hard to penetrate. Good luck getting through upper hull.
Turret: Nigh impossible. Cupolas can be penetrated, but is very unreliable.
T110E5
Hull: Lower glacis, driver's viewports.
Turret: Commander's cupola, area beside mantlet. Avoid mantlet if possible. Turret ring is rather vulnerable.
T57 Heavy Tank
Hull: Lower glacis, driver's viewports.
Turret: The turret ring is very vulnerable. Try not to hit the gun or the area around it if possible.
113
Hull: Lower glacis, upper hull can be penetrated at point blank range if you have good gun depression.
Turret: Cupolas.
AMX 50 B
Hull: Do no shoot it at the front hull ever. Most of it is auto bounce.
Turret: Same as T57 Heavy.
FV215B
Hull: Lower glacis, if slightly angled, shoot the exhaust pipes (it will hit a piece of side armour rated at 102mm)
Turret: Cupola, turret ring.
Medium Tanks
E-50 Ausf. M
Hull: Same as E-50, but upper hull is slightly stronger due to slope.
Turret: Same as E-50.
T-62A
Hull: Frontal hull is weaker than a T-54, should not be a problem. Aim for the headlights for ammo rack.
Turret: Commander's cupola, top turret. (Only if you have height advantage.)
M48A1
Hull: Lower glacis, driver's viewports.
Turret: Commander's cupola. Avoid mantlet. Turret ring.
FV4202
Hull: Lower glacis, hull is pretty weak.
Turret: Pretty much autopen, there's no mantlet.
BatChat 25t.
Hull: Derp. Don't shoot the spaced armour square immediately above the tracks.
Turret: Derp.
121
Hull: Lower glacis, frontal hull is not that strong at tier 10 anyway.
Turret: Commander's cupola. Avoid mantlet.
Tank Destroyers
Jagdpanzer E-100
Hull: Lower glacis is extremely vulnerable. Armour beside mantlet can be penetrated by most tier 10 tanks. However, the armour plate with bolts on is very strong. Rear MG turret if possible, cupolas.
Object 268
Hull: The hull is extremely weak, as it comes from the IS-8. Try to avoid hitting weld seams. Lower hull can be easily penetrated. Commander's cupola.
Object 263
Hull: Lower hull, the square mantlet. Engine deck can be penetrated at close range. (Must have height advantage)
T110E3
Hull: Lower glacis (152mm @ 55), commander's MG turret (229 @ 60). Essentially you are pretty screwed if you don't have HEAT.
T100E4
Hull: Lower glacis.
Turret: Commander's MG turret, area beside mantlet.
AMX 50 Foch (155)
Hull: Same as the tier 9 AMX 50 Foch.
FV215B (183)
Hull: Lower hull. Upper glacis isn't very strong.
Turret: Flat 254mm spot underneath the gun, or the random stuff on the turret top.
Tier IX
Heavy Tanks
VK 4502 Ausf. B
Hull: Lower glacis plate, it is still 170mm like upper glacis, but it is less angled. Tier 9 guns like 10,5cm Kwk 46 L68 can penetrate 50% of the time unangled. If angled, it is hard to hit through it, even with tier 10 guns like 120mm/12,8cm Kwk 44 L55. Ammo rack is located in the rear of the hull, where the spare track links are located.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola, try not to hit the rangefinder in front of it. High powered guns like 155mm T7 and 152mm BL-10 can penetrate turret frontally if fired head on without angle. Ammo rack is on the rear half the turret.
Stock Turret: Same armour as the Maus turret, hit the rounded front turret armour beside the mantlet. Cupola is still weak. Ammo rack is in the rear half of the turret.
E-75
Hull: Lower glacis (130mm). Avoid shooting the upper glacis if possible, as that can bounce 12,8cm Kwk 44 shots unangled, angled it can bounce 152mm BL-10s.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola. Ammo rack is in the rear half of the turret.
Stock Turret: Commander's cupola. Guns with greater than 225mm penetration can hit through frontal turret reliably, as long as you do not hit the mantlet. Ammo rack is in the rear half of the turret.
ST-I
Hull: Lower glacis plate. Do not hit the driver's viewport, that spot is 200mm.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola.
Stock Turret: Range finder on the left side of the turret, commander's cupola, loader's cupola. Frontal turret isn't very strong at all.
IS-8
Hull: Lower glacis, driver's viewport. Frontal hull is not exceptionally strong. If driver angles hull, shoot whichever side is facing you.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola.
Stock Turret: Commander's cupola.
M103
Hull: Lower glacis, driver's viewport can be consistently penetrated at close range.
Turrets: Area beside the mantlet, commander's cupola. Turret ring.
Conquerer
Hull: Lower glacis, upper hull is very weak for the tier.
Upgraded turret: Cupola, if facehugging, any turret cheek that's facing you.
Stock Turret: Anywhere but the mantlet.
AMX 50 120
Hull: Anywhere really. Don't hit the lower hull.
Turret: Turret ring or any flat face. Don't hit the gun.
WZ-111 Models 1-4
Hull: Lower hull is weak. Upper hull is weak for the tier too.
Upgraded Turret: Cupolas
Stock Turret: Same IS-3 upgraded turret.

Medium Tanks
E-50
Hull: Lower glacis. Ammo rack is underneath the turret, and above the tracks.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola, rangefinders.
Stock Turret: Anywhere but mantlet.
T-54
Hull: Hull can be penetrated anywhere by any guns above 200mm penetration, as long as the driver does not angle his T-54. If so, you can shoot the flimsy side armour. Ammo rack is located behind the headlights (Gee wizz.) to the left of the tank. Try to hit the T-54's frontal hull above the splashboard. Driver's viewport is another weakspot.
Upgraded Turret: Commander and loader's cupolas are easy penetration at close range. You can actually penetrate the frontal turret with 225mm penetration guns with 50% probability if you aim directly at the gun. Ammo rack is located in the back of the turret as well.
Stock Turret: Same as above.
M46 Patton
Hull: lol. Ammo rack is underneath the turret.
Upgraded Turret: Try to hit the hull, otherwise, hit the cupola or the area beside the mantlet.
Stock Turret: Anywhere but the mantlet (square part)
Lorraine 40t
Seriously?
Centurion Mk. 7/1
Hull: Anywhere really. Frontal lower hull has ammo rack behind the stowage.
Turrets: Everywhere but mantlet.
WZ-120
Hull: Virtually everywhere at this tier. Ammo rack/fuel tank behind headlights.
Upgraded Turret: Cupolas
Stock Turret: Cupolas. See T-54 upgraded turret.
Tank Destroyers
Jagdtiger
Hull: Same weaknesses as Tiger II, lower glacis is 120mm. MG ball mount has only 80mm of armour. Ammo rack is located on the side of the superstructure, where the Balkenkruz is.
Superstructure: None. BL-10, T7, Pak44/2 can penetrate upper superstructure if it's medium/close range and the Jagdtiger is not angled. But usually you can shoot the lower/upper glacis plate. Mantlet is impenetrable, do not hit it.
Object 704
Hull: Lower glacis. Frontal superstructure is flimsy for tier 9. However, do not hit the mantlet, It's more than 300mm there. There are also two highly angled plates that count as side armour. From the front, it is too angled for most guns to penetrate. You CAN penetrate if the 704 happens to not face you.
SU-122-54
Hull: Lower glacis, cupolas. Anywhere but the mantlet and highly sloped frontal side superstructure.
T95
Hull: Lower glacis is very situational, it's extremely hard to hit barring point blank ranges, not to mention it's still ~200mm, then you'd be right in front of his gun. The two cupolas are easy weakspots to hit. I have taken damage on my T95 when someone shot my track off from the front. Mudguards may be another weakness. The two triangle areas on either side of the main hull are now spaced armour, penetrations from the front there DO NOT DO DAMAGE.
T30
Hull: lol. Ammo rack is under the turret.
Turret: The  left and right area beside the mantlet can be penetrated by guns above  225mm penetration unangled, if the T30 turns away even a bit, any gun  above 200mm will penetrate. The frontal side turret is only 179mm thick.  152mm BL-10 CAN penetrate the mantlet, but it's not recommended.  Commander's cupola is another choice if being facehugged. The small  triangular area above the mantlet is also a good spot if being  facehugged. Ammo rack is located in the back of the turret.
AMX 50 Foch
Hull: Lower glacis (may be difficult due to slope), commander's MG turret. Frontal armour is quite powerful. Guns with 269mm penetration will not get through it often. The rangefinder bar is spaced armour. Shooting the bar does no damage.
Tortoise
Hull: Cupola, any flat surface. Do not ever shoot the mantlet, cuz 406mm says nope.avi.
Tier VIII
Heavy Tanks
Tiger II
Hull: Lower glacis is rated at 120mm. MG mount is not a weakspot, and is equivalent in protection to the rest of the hull. Ammo rack is above the tracks.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola. Ammo rack is located in the rear half of the turret. Frontal turret armour is rather flimsy with the exception of the mantlet.
Stock Turret: lol. This turret is a joke. Anywhere but the mantlet you can penetrate with guns above 135mm penetration. Try to hit the rounded part beside the mantlet however. Ammo rack is same as above.
VK4502 Ausf. A
Hull: Lower glacis. Avoid the flat plate that's in the front and side of the hull, those plates are impenetrable spaced armour. MG mount is weak.
Upgraded Turret: Same as Tiger II.
Stock Turret: Same as Tiger II.
IS-3
Hull: Same as IS-7, lower glacis is weaker than the rest. Avoid shooting the pike head on. If facehugging, the driver's viewing prism/port is a weakness. Ammo rack is under the turret. When shooting side hull, avoid shooting the side sponsons. Armour there is ~200mm due to 30mm side skirt+90mm@60 degrees.. Shoot near the tracks for 90mm@0 degrees hull armour.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola, the flat square on the top of the turret behind the gun. That spot is only 20mm, any gun above 60mm calibre will autopenetrate due to overmatch.
Stock Turret: Commander's cupola. Turret overmatch no longer works due to stronger top armour. However, frontal turret is pathetic.
KV-4
Hull: Driver's viewport, MG port, lower glacis.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's gun turret.
Stock Turret: Commander's MG turret.
T32
Hull: This thing is rather good despite what people say. Lower glacis is very hard to hit. The MG port and driver/radioman's hatches are weakspots. Ammo rack is under the turret.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola at very close range (very high chance of ricochet), HE shells, gold rounds or high powered guns (245mm+) can penetrate the gun hole.
Stock Turret: Do not hit the mantlet.
AMX 50 100
Hull: Anywhere really. Will penetrate barring weird angles.
Turret: Armour what's that?
Caenarvon
Hull: Lower glacis. Upper glacis provides protection to 225mm pen guns approx. 50% of the time unangled.
Upgraded Turret: Anywhere but the mantlet.
Stock Turret: Cupola. Avoid shooting turret as it's stronger than the upgraded one.
110
Hull: Lower glacis, the "shoulder" plates immediately above the tracks (100mm vs. 120mm on the rest of the frontal hull)
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola. (The one without the machine gun)
Stock Turret: Anywhere that's not the mantlet. Commander's Cupola.

Medium Tanks
Panther II
Hull: Lower glacis, MG port (Leopard at full speed managed to knock my radioman out). Ammo rack is above the...take a guess.
Upgraded Turret: Anywhere except mantlet.
Stock Turret: lol
Indien Panzer
Hull: Frontal hull is rather strong. Shoot turret instead.
Turret: Mantlet. MG port, cupola.
T-44
Hull: Same weaknesses at T-54. Ammo rack located in the exact same spot everywhere.
Upgraded Turret: Everywhere but mantlet.
Stock Turret: Everywhere but mantlet.
Pershing
Hull: Lower glacis, MG port. The raised square portion right in the middle of two crew hatches. Ammo rack underneath the turret.
Turrets: Anywhere but mantlet.
T69
Hull: Lower glacis. Upper hull is quite well protected, similar to the Type 59.
Turret: Turret ring, cupola. Don't hit the gun.
Centurion Mk. I
Hull: Anywhere really. Ammo rack to the right of the driver.
Upgraded Turret: Anywhere but mantlet.
Stock Turret: Anywhere but mantlet.
T-34-2
Hull: Lower glacis. Ammo rack/fuel tank behind head lights.
Turrets: Guns with 215mm+ average penetration can go through the frontal turret. Cupolas.

Tank Destroyers
Ferdinand
Hull: Lower glacis, area where the...headlights are.
Superstructure: None, but any gun with 225mm penetration or above will penetrate if the Ferdinand is not angled and if the shot does not hit the mantlet. Ammo rack is located in the side armour section behind the Balkenkruz.
ISU-152
Hull: This tank destroyer is not burdened by silly things like armour...except the mantlet is now buffed and will bounce everything.
SU-101
Hull: Avoid the upper superstructure. Shoot the upper or lower hull. Tumor on the frontal right side is another weakspot.
T28
Hull: Same as T95, hit the cupolas or flank. Lower glacis is much weaker than the upper superstructure.
T28 Prototype
Hull: MG port. Lower glacis. T28 prototype has rather consistent armour from the front here.
Turret: Turret is open top, therefore vulnerable to HE from top shots. Otherwise, area beside the mantlet.
AMX AC Mle. 1948
Hull: Lower hull, commander's MG turret. Rear turret (if your vehicle can see it.). The rangefinder bar is spaced armour. Shooting the bar does no damage.
AT-15
Hull: Cupola. Go as far away from the gun as you can and flank around
Premium Tanks
Lowe
Hull: Lower glacis. The tiny driver's hatch is 100mm.
Turret: Commander's cupola, anywhere that's not the mantlet. The area below the mantlet is especially good, as you may jam his turret traverse.
8,8cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger
Hull: Same as Jagdtiger. MG port is now stronger at 120mm.
KV-5
Hull: Radioman's MG turret, aka R2D2, lower glacis.
Turret: Commander's/loader's cupolas.
IS-6
Hull: Lower glacis (120mm, avoid if possible), driver's hatch. Shoulders are penetrable if they are angling toward you.
Turret: Commander's cupola. Area that's not the mantlet.
M6A2E1
Hull: This tank has almost no weakspots frontally, the only area that is weak is the area where the driver's viewport is. The only reason it is weak is because it isn't sloped. Guns with 200mm+ penetration can hit through here, but less likely if the driver angles his armour.
Turret: Area above the mantlet. All in all, it's easier to fire HE or flank it. Even guns like the 12,8cm Pak 44 sometimes has difficulties penetrating this tank frontally. Turret ring is vulnerable to close range hits.
T34
Hull: See T30.
Turret: See T30, but rear  turret armour is now not a good place to hit due to additional armour  plating. Rear turret still houses the ammo rack.
T26E4 Super Pershing
Hull: MG port, driver/radioman's hatches.
Turret: Commander's cupola (behind the stabilizer springs), area above the frontal turret add-on armour, frontal side turret below the add-on armour.
FCM 50t
Hull: The little tiny MG port. Or you can just shoot virtually anywhere.
Turret: There's no armour whatsoever for its tier. Even the mantlet is only 120mm with nothing behind it.

Type 59
Hull: Same as T-54/44. Ammo rack location is the same spot.
Turret: Exactly the same as T-54's upgraded turret, except the side turret is much weaker.

Tier VII
Heavy Tanks
Tiger I
Hull: lol, avoid the highly sloped upper superstructure.
Stock Turret: Commander's cupola. Avoid the mantlet.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola. Avoid the mantlet.
Tiger P
Hull: Try to shoot the turret instead. But if you absolutely have to shoot it for some reason, it has exactly the same frontal weakness as a Ferdinand, with the addition of a driver's viewport.
Turrets: Should be able to penetrate easily, zero angle 100/120mm isn't much.  However there are some areas where mantlet stacks with frontal turret armour. Commander's cupola.
IS
Hull: Lower glacis, where the track links are. Avoid shooting the sloped section on the front, even though it's only 60mm, it is angled at 70 (!) degrees from vertical, making it 174mm effective, or 120mm with normalization. Even then it is more likely to ricochet your shot.
Turrets: Commander's cupola. Mantlet on the IS is pathetically weak.
KV-3
Hull: Driver's viewport, MG port, lower hull.
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola
Stock Turret: Commander's MG turret.
T29
Hull: At this tier, it's rather good. Shoot lower glacis or the MG mount. Crew hatches are another good spot. Ammo rack underneath the turret.
Upgraded Turret: Same as T30. Rear half houses the ammo rack. Rangefinders are no longer weakspots.
Stock Turret: Same as T30
AMX M4 1945
Hull: Lower hull, MG port, driver's viewport.
Upgraded Turret: Anywhere really. Mantlet is not very strong.
Weak Turret: Anywhere but the mantlet.
Black Prince
Hull: Lower glacis. MG port. Radioman's hatch.
Turret: Cupola.
IS-2
Hull: Lower glacis.
Turrets: Mantlet. Cupola.

Medium Tanks
VK 3002 DB
Hull: Lower glacis. Driver's hatch, MG port.
Upgraded Turret: Everywhere but mantlet.
Stock Turret: Anywhere.
T-43
Hull: The big square hatch for the driver. Lower glacis
Upgraded Turret: Anywhere.
Stock Turret: Anywhere.
T20
Hull/Turrets: This medium tank is also not encumbered by ridiculous things like steel plating.
Tank Destroyers
Jagdpanther
Hull: Lower glacis, MG mount. Try not to hit the mantlet.
SU-100M1
Hull: Avoid the mantlet.
SU-122-44
Hull: Avoid the mantlet.
SU-152
Hull: See ISU-152
T25 AT
Hull: Anywhere but the mantlet. Cupola.
T25-2
Hull: Virtually anywhere.
Turrets: Anywhere but the mantlet.
AMX AC Mle. 1946
Hull: Lower hull, commander's MG turret. Rangefinder turret, the rangefinder bar itself is spaced armour. Shooting the bar does no damage. Driver's viewport.
AT-7
Hull: Various cupolas. MG port on the right side.
AT-15A
Hull: Cupolas. Go around.
Requests
AT-2
Hull: Cupola.
AT-8
Hull: Cupolas, MG port on the left side.

VK 3601
Hull: MG mount, driver's viewport
Upgraded Turret: Commander's cupola
Stock Turret: Commander's cupola
M4A3E2
Hull: MG mount
"Upgraded" Turret: Area beside the mantlet
Stock Turret: No exceptional weaknesses. Try hull instead.
KV
Hull: MG mount, driver's viewport, lower glacis. This tank is quite well armoured all round, but similar tiered guns can penetrate well barring bad angles.
Upgraded Turret: Shoot the flat parts that are not part of the mantlet. The turret is quite high off the hull, you can hit the traverse mechanism quite easily as well. Ammo rack is located in the rear, below the huge square crew hatch.
Stock Turret: Shoot hull instead, frontal stock turret has few non sloped parts, and rounded mantlet bounces quite a few shots.
T1 Heavy
Hull: Area where the hull MG mount is, driver's viewport. This area is not exactly weak, but it is not sloped so you can easily penetrate with guns above 120mm penetration.
Upgraded Turret: Easier to just shoot hull.
Stock Turret: Commander's cupola.
38H735 (f) [aka Hotchkiss]
Hull: Driver's hatch, lower glacis (knocks out engine if penetrated)
Turret: Commander's hatch. Gun.

You realise reading the list is just a much less effective version of hitbox skins right?

Outrageous!

You do realize that by posting this you are creating an "unfair advantage" against players who didn't already know them, aren't reading this, and don't use the skins in question?

Of course, you knowing them in the first place is an "unfair advantage", right?

By every definition of "unfair advantage" I've seen used against the skins so far, this certainly qualifies...

Don't be a retard. Learning weak points improves your individual skill. Having a skin show you is a crutch for the same effect. The unfair part is getting the result without the skill.

Are you going to look up my list while you are in battle with a particular tank? You have to remember the weakspot. I'd rather have people shooting me knowing the weaknesses by heart than just point and clicking at a tank covered with Christmas lights.

Having the skins is A WAY TO LEARN THEM. You can switch them out after a few games and be fine. But yeah sure memorize that list.

Don't have tank by tank specifics, but the turret ring is often vulnerable, if you're close enough to squeeze a shell between the turret and the hull.  That's one I often go for in a medium, since a damaged turret ring practically guarantees that I can now circle and knife you to death.

Hull: Driver's viewport on the flatter part of the upper glacis.

Maybe I was unlucky, but in my experience that has resulted in 0 damage crits. Same with the cupola.

Hit that one on the nail.

Now when people rage about Invincible tanks I can just direct them here.


Good post, +1 but now there is really NO EXCUSE to hear complaints vs these vehicles.
