Critical Kill Components

Vehicle kills in WWIIOL-Battleground Europe do not always represent kills of the player crewing the vehicle you killed, just as in the real war a kill is determined by either the kill of the crew in the vehicle or a kill of the vehicles ability to continue to function in the pursuit of it's basic mission objective.

For example, a tank needs to be able to drive around and shoot other tanks, primarily ... or support infantry with it's gun ... so if you remove it's ability to drive around and shoot, or either of those functions, you have scored a kill. The player crewing the vehicle could well still be alive and not have a kill scored against him at the same time as you get a kill for killing his vehicle. Crew RTB status is based on being alive. Vehicle kill status is based on whether or not the vehicle sustained critical damage or not.
