I'm not sure where to aim my weapon when shooting at armor vehicles in Project Reality. I mean, I realize that the front armor is the strongest while the (rarely accessible) underside armor is pretty weak. However, I'm not sure between the rest. Should I aim for the side armor, the tracks, the turret, the back side, the top, etc.?

And if there's no uniform armor behavior between different armored vehicles, is there anywhere I could find a guide for this basic "where to aim" question?

The under side and rear armor is always the weakest to my knowledge. Followed by the side armor. The rear armor is where you'll want to aim, unless you have a way of hitting it's underside.

And do you know how the turret compares to the rest? – Oak Feb 12 '11 at 23:40
Sorry I don't, I'm not sure how sophisticated the engine behind the damage calculations is. I dout it's comparable. – Red Feb 13 '11 at 10:44
