Upvoting. I tested all tanks bugs as i play mainly armored vehicles, and this bug right next tu Physx failures, and lack of reverse abilities for ai is most gamebraking issue.

Was this readed? more than 2 weeks passed.... And bug is serious.

Heavens, what a nasty bug. Hopefully the problem is just with those sandbags...

I tested it with all defence objects like concrete bariers, sandbags etc. Its seems to block vision completly.

Oh man. That is not good at all. Does the problem occur when a tank is behind a low wall in the terrain that covers the hull only? Or some piles of garbage?

It seems every object like this create barrier for visibility Walls, sandbags, even bridge, when only hull is covered.

I tested the main battle tanks, and their "eyes" are really low. Like around 1.30m height, while the actual viewpoints (driver, gunner, commander) are all much higher than that.

Funny thing is that even the tank away from the wall in the attached mission don't know about the other, even though its whole turret is clearly visible from all altitudes. Seems like any part above that 1.3m can't be detected.

edit. added a screenshot of a perfectly hidden tank. Apparently hull-down is very viable tactic...
