Well, actually, Leningrad can smash into a Yamato for about 70k damage going full speed. Yes, I was bored and felt like testing ramming a little. I can only imagine Le Terrible ramming a BB...

Remember you torpedoes for this purpose! unless you're dutch

I love running DD's over with my Scharnhorst. 

I even caught a DD in the channel on Two Brothers as seen on the "how to scharnhorst" video, ran over him too.

Good times.

I had a game last night where a Vlad tried ramming my Lexington. Didn't even do half my health in ram damage lol I survived and got Die Hard.

Unless it was parked or something.

Looks to me like one of those two passenger Smart cars.

I always figured they'd get bounced around like a pingpong ball; never thought one would just get crushed.

They are actually built pretty tough safety wise but nothing short of a main battle tank is truly survivable when tangling with a semi.

I still remember that time (way back when I still played randoms) that I had a DD (I think it was a Wakatake) run smack into the side of my Kawachi (was revisiting it to remind myself how bad it was). Easiest Die-Hard I ever got, I barely noticed it and had most of the damage repaired fairly quickly. I have noticed recently that the ramming mechanics have been a bit 'off' and I think WG did say something about it being bugged, not sure if it got fixed yet or not, but I'm betting not.

That's why I drive a Suburban. It's as close as I can get to a tank, I have a 1999 model that I swear was built off surplus tank frames, that thing is indestructible. I wouldn't care to get in a wreck with any car, but if had to it would be that one.

Still, that wreck looked nasty, if there was someone driving that bubble, the best case is critically injured.

Some times you're the bug, some times you're the windscreen.

I remember I was playing the Langley a bit before the CV rework came in, and a pan-asian destroyer basically had me pinned down. He could've easily torpedoed me, but he decided to ram me. I had much more HP than he did. He died but I didn't.

That's not tensile strength either. This would be compression strength. The smart cars compression strength combined with its shape and safety features means that it's good at deflecting any energy it doesn't absorb, making it a surprisingly safe car.

Tensile strength? Wouldn't that be compressive strength? Or is that smart car suspended from hidden cables?

Even if the only car I hate more than a Smart Car is a Prius.
