Yes ... stuff can happen ... very unusual stuff sometimes. But probable is not the same as possible.
The Russian AGS-30 has a muzzle velocity in the neighbourhood of 600 FPS which is 1/3 slower than that .45. The Mk 19 is only marginally faster Yes it's " possible " but very very unlikely under "normal" circumstances"

A tiger 2 was killed in Normandy by a 2 inch mortar down the commanders hatch and its companion retreated at speed away. Though it may have exploded an ammo truck that was alongside at the time - its not clear exactly what, but 1 dead tiger 2 was the end result.

That does not meant that the 2in mortar will be getting any AT capabilities in the game other than what normally exists. If there was an ammo truck explosion - covered by game mechanics, or in the game one may get a track hit immobilisation which can make the crew bail if bad morale.

Flukes happen, but use of RPG or AGL in the game will only be on landed helos. Most RPG hits on helos seem to be prepared ambushes where the insurgents place themselves precisely far enough away from the spot its going to hover/land etc that the RPG self-destruct will cause an airburst, and with a lot of luck and/or a salvo of rounds simultaneously loosed off, they sometimes get lucky. But RPG or AGL wont be "AA" weapons in the game.
