Weak Spot Guide: Object 704

The tier 9 Russian tank destroyer Object 704 has a tricky armor scheme that relies on a bit of luck and poor shot placement to deflect incoming rounds.  Against most tier 8 and tier 9/10 tanks the Object 704’s armor is not strong enough frontally to stop aimed shots on much of its frontal armor.
