If u look at armour there is more to it then just mm. (Only front now)

Panther G 80mm @ 55degrees gives the same as 170mm @ 90deg. (and Jagdpanther)

Tiger 1 100mm @ 10 deg. gives the same as 105 @ 90 deg.

Tiger 2 150mm @ 50 deg. gives the same as 270 @ 90deg. :rock:

PzKw 4 H 80 @ 10 deg. gives 85 @ 90 deg.

Sherman M4A3 50mm @ 47 deg. gives the same as 95 @ 90 deg.

Sherman easy 8 same as M4A3

True. The key is not only the thickness, but the angle.

We didn't take that into account, for the very simple fact that Bf doesn't know angles. It doesn't matter if you hit at 90° or at 10°, you always cause the same damage. We also didn't take into account, what kind of steel the armour was, 100mm Panther armour are as strong as 100mm Tiger armour. Game limitations.

Not the angle you hit but how the armour is placed. That´s why round shaped turrets i.E. have an advantage over flat shaped ones. Same goes for the whole armour. Later German tanks were not build flat on the sides. Like a christmastree getting slimmer to the tops.

the plating was not vertical, but placed diagonal for repelling tank shells more easily.

No. They have their real armour strength in mm, no angle taken into account.
