Yes, and at that range they should hear the engine, tank impacts and incoming and outgoing rounds too! You get the same Bs at night battles, you have to hear that engine that close! To not know it is there is total BS. Is it a soldier skill level problem? What game mode are you playing on? We don't know if the bow gunner has been KIA or incapacitated or just unconscious by the round or not, my guess is he has. If he is still alive perhaps an invisible clipping problem on the grass or trees blocking them. I still personally think t the 360 arc is not allowing the piat team to not focus on one angled area as well. Maybe the soldiers don't want to try the piat at the fronts and trying for the sides or a better angle? Maybe they don't feel its a threat and are waiting for troops to eject and holding fire? What ever is shooting at the makr iv is so weak and far away ,I have never seen so many hits without a bailout some crew could be unconscious/dazed. maybe AI = Why waste a pait round if you know the tank is done for? Troops that are extremely fatigued can walk past stuff as well.
