Reading this thread is cheating!
You've got to be kidding!  

This thread is much like having tank commanders, engineers, tank designers, and ordinance officers reporting back to you with data from battlefied experience or field tests on captured vehicles.  It happens all the time during conflict.  You still need to remember it all, and put it into practice during the heat of battle, without the luxury of being able to reference it on the fly.

Skins, OTOH, are like having the enemy paste neon "shoot me here" stickers all over themselves.  Not gonna happen in war.

Could you please find out what are the frontal weaknesses of the Leopard? They are near-invincible in the tier 4 battles...

Except the T29 and T32, whose hulls are pretty good for their tiers.

it should be noted - headlights doesn't exist in server collision models, so they can't be weakspot.
IS-7 ammorack is not after headlights - it here ->
Spoiler                     

As you see ammorack located after lower glacis.

Thanks for that, but the ammo rack is between the headlights and behind it. You don't shoot the headlight per se, you hit the armour behind it.

ammorack is closer to tank bottom, on the floor. Between 2 fuel tanks. So penetration of lower glacis will lead to damage to fuel tanks or ammorack damage/ammoracking.
BTW you also can pen sides (100mm of armour) of IS-7 and hit AR or Fuel tanks, there are behinde tracks.

This may be just me but I find the lower glacis on the E-75 and E-50 virtually impossible to penetrate even with a 88mm L71 at a right angle, so I wouldnt recommend shooting it on those tanks despite the common wisdom of "when in doubt shoot the lower glacis".

If you are at extremely close range (less than 15m, virtually facehugging), the downward angle on the lower glacis makes the effective armour too much, and thus will fail to penetrate, even if it will at slightly longer ranges. At that distance, I suggest using the turret weakspots.

Edit: Added more ammo rack locations.

For the KV the ammo rack is right behind the front drive wheel.
