Hi,

 

So I have a little problem with this tank and I'm looking forward to solve or at least understand it.

 

I'm not too good at this game but I know what I'm driving. I know the ups and downs of the tank and how to use it. Same goes for A-44. Its frontal armor is thick and sloped enough to bounce most shots and it does. Sometimes I bounce even BL-9 shots frontally, which is pretty insane. I know this tank is great for sidescraping and I try to take advantage of that. However there is this tank that negates all of my advantages, T-34/100. It pens my frontal hull armor every time it hits. And no, it doesn't hit my LFP.

 

What to do?

Don't rely on the front. It may be tough, and it may be better than the IS's front, but it is just as unreliable.

the front is only 140mm effective armor  only 2 small strips are 150mm and both are unangled

The lower and upper plate is 75mm thick, where the upper at 62 degrees, minus norm. becomes 57 deg. effective, and that gives an effective thickness of about 140mm, like reichtangle said. One of the 150mm parts links the lower plate with the upper plate and is flat, the second is on the very top of the frontal slope, on the protruding part of the hull where the dual machine gun is, and is about 200mm effective... So for the most part, the frontal armor is pretty good, but it isn't as good/reliable as advertised and cans still be fairly easily penetrated...

 

Edit: Oh and the T-34/100 has 175mm pen so the only place it can reliably bounce is the sloped 150mm plate...
