Let s say, that a enemy tankbusting squad assualts my vindicator, and they fail to harm it. Then in my next turn I shoot them with the demolisher cannon, and it scatters on to the vindicator, what happens?
You are probly going to tell me that the tank takes the hit, but doesn't sound funny that the gun fires, the shell goes out the barrell, up into the air, then curve around and comes back down where it just came from, exspeciallly when I was firing at a unit right in front of me.

That is exactly what happens, it would be absurdly difficult trying to lob a shell stright up in the air trying to hit some infantry knocking on the outside of the tank, it is far more likely that the tank would get hit, so it doesnt seem unfair
Everything you have been told is a lie!
He's right, that's exactly what happens.
A demolisher cannon isn't really supposed to be used for close-combat guys.

I agree. And on top of that, real world logic has very little to do with this game, unfortunatley .

If you wanted, you could explain it away as the shell detonating prematurely, which would certainly cause serious damage to the vehicle.
They got it right on the nose. A long range bombardment weapon wasn't ment for point blank range. And as drake put it. You could easily explain it as possible malfunctions within the cannon itself. Due to the close combat or simple "it was their time" the shell detonates within the tank due to the impact of say a failed powerfist penetration.. I'm sure a powerfist would rock the crap out of tank. Or the fuse goes off within the barrel.. or he fired it at 90 degrees so the shell just fell down ontop of itself.
