sweet spot for tank killing?

Can any experienced members advise if there is a particular area on a tank or APC to aim for when using an AT rocket? generally it seems to take 3 or more hits to kill a tank and at least 2 to take out an APC. Obviously previous damage is a factor and whether there is an Engineer driving or close by, but is this hit rate correct? Any advise on this would be much appreciated, I am keen to develop my tank killing skills as I see this is an important role in NRU in the absence of air power and the occasional appearance of "tank whores"

Too paranoid to tell it :P
Tank => Aim to tracks, that deals 50% damage from front or back. Hit to sides make something like 30% damage. Avoid hittint strong upside parts of tank.

APC and AA-vehicle => Always 45% damage, no matter where you hit them.


Here some tips too how make life of tank whore miserable:

Jihad-jeeping: Put C4 to DPV or FAV and take remote ready. Drive to the tank, bail out and BOOM! If tank don't notice you, back off more to avoid damaging yourself. This technique of tank busting is very effective on wide open maps like Highway Tampa or Operation Smoke Screen.

TOW/HJ-8: Use them if you know there is enemy vehicle coming to your flag, one hit to tracks can destroy tank and APC where ever you hit it.

Mines: Put them to places where they are hard to see like grass, water, shadows, ends of bridges, etc terrain. Well placed mines are maybe easiest kills what you can get.

Hopefully that helps you. :)

Spotting is too very important, it gives your teammates some extra time to prepare ambush when tank whore arrives. Also jihad-jeeping is easier if you know where enemy tank exactly is, then you can plan how you get behind it for surprise attack.
