What are the costs of bailing-out by "J" key, for ground vehicles?

What are the costs ( Silver Lions ) of bailing-out by "J" key, for ground vehicles?

In which situation should I do it?

What makes it sense at all, to "save" repair costs, time, ect?!

I read

Ground Forces has a problem, and it's the "J" key

https://www.reddit.com/r/Warthunder/comments/25rj8c/ground_forces_has_a_problem_and_its_the_j_key/

but I didn´t understand the clue...

In real life in WWII, leaving a ground vehicle was in general useful ( after beeing shot down, i.e. cannon didn´t work anymore, no ammunition, motor defect )... while of course the bailed-out crew might be attaced by machine guns by the "Reds".... if the vehicle was under attack, at all.

Sincerely

Rolf

Same as someone killing you ... and you use it if you know   it's over for yourself  and want to quickly get back into game , not sit there and burn if no fire extinguisher , or your nose diving to the ground

a)Oh I know the precious value of a fire extinguisher :-)

b)Now, first time in my life, I was "forced" to leave my PanzerIIC with "J" key as I was out of ammunition, and still some potential of my blue team ( size of blue bar at the top) to act/win. This was never true with any other tank ( Panzer III, IV, 38t,..) :-(

c) With airplanes at ground battles, well if I see that my ground vehicle is in danger, but I can´t help with the airplane... maybe THATS a reason to bail-out of a plane ( doesn´t cost anything, LOL).

Not sure if your aware but you can reload your ammo if your team holds one of the cap points. Just pull in and sit still and you'll auto-reload. You can repair that way also if you don't have parts and can manage to get there.

This is a great tip! I could have used it last week when my SPAA ran out of ammo and I ran to the edge of the battlefield instead of going to park at our cap. Thanks!

Hate that , especially if you're stuck with enemy tanks around
