two days ago I posted some data from one Russian post on the old web blog. A developer was kind enough to comment (in Russian) under the Russian source post. Here are his comments:
Earlier: The miniature spaced armor strips over the tracks and the rim around the hull (violent on picture) – earlier 10mm, became 30mm
Developer comments: No. The side armor was 30mm even before and stayed 30mm. The rim under the turret was 100mm, stayed 100mm. We removed the spaced armor, that was situated in the crevice under the turret, which was there for some reason.
Earlier: Recieved new miniature 20mm spaced armor plates on sides.
Developer comments: not 20mm, but 30mm
Earlier: Gun armor reduced from 50 to 30mm, frontal hull armor increased from 20 to 30mm, rear part (earlier 0) recieved 6mm armorDeveloper comments: Gun armor isn’t 30mm, but 20 and 25mm (122mm and 152mm guns). The rear part in the collission model was a little smaller – we fixed that. The frontal 30mm is historical.
Earlier: No changes
Developer comments: The first turret recieved the same armor as the analogical Cromwell and Matilda Black Prince turrets (the change was practically from 0,1mm)
