Hatches

Hi LMP,

Keeping the hatches open will help your crew survive a penetration by a BKS shell or RPG hit. The open hatches help vent the penetrating explosion. Keeping them open doesn't guarantee survival, but it can help. Personally I usually keep them closed to keep my tank's silloette as low as possible.

You're welcome LMP. The downside of keeping the hatches open is basically what I said earlier about raising your silhouette. When the hatches are open they do present more of a target for your enemies. Leaving the hatches open also appears to expose your tanks delicate internal systems and crew to well placed explosions outside of your tank. In my experience I did score a destruction shot on the enemy T-55 in the Oil Storage Facility mission when one of my BKS shells hit one of the T-55's open hatches and exploded over the turret. It was the darndest thing... Seeing that big white "destruction shot" vector only sticking through an open turret hatch and nothing else during the post mission fly-through.
