I think the AIs get a bit of leeway as far as physics are concerned. It's most noticable with the Mass Driver, but it applies to pretty much everything. When you nail an AI with the mass driver, it can get thrown, but an ai will hardly ever get tossed as badly as a human player does. What you saw was probably just an extension of that.

As far as damage goes, you can take 3 mass driver hits to the front armor without dying.

i knew about the 3 or 4 hits dependant on armour, was just bemused as to why it didnt boot the ai halfway to new mexico - but thx for the explanation

Yeah, I hate that. Many a time, I've nailed an AI in the side with the mass and it's turned and ramdrilled the hell out of me LOL.

well I've noticed this before if you're too close to another tank, damage and kick are not figured right(mostly tank gun). guess we will have to call this a feature of the game. backing off about 3-5 meters is usually enough to get things working again
