You know that the "brick" shape is spaced armour used IRL to counter anti tank HEAT weapon like RPGs?

Can't say how good it was, but still better than nothing.

And in game also saves you from most of the HE spam.

Wow 348 matches on Sheridan.

What took you so long?

 

Tip: Keep your eyes on the opponents.

Even more important: the minimap.

Sorry to disappoint, but this is a myth that has been doing the rounds on the forum for too long. The 'brick' shape as used in early prototypes was to "incorporate hydro jet propulsion for amphibious operation, buoyant foam filled sponsons, and a frontal splash board". So in the game at least it should float. In practice the later more attractive production hull ditched the foam filled sponsons and used a conventional skirt for amphibious operations. The flotation sponsons were not meant to substitute for spaced armour, they were thin spot welded metal.

Nice to now. Is even more intresting than the HEAT shield I knowed!

It would be fun if the Sheridan could float in game! :)

Do you mean this 100% pen HEAT protection? The 70% of the front is like this. Maybe the side. Or NOT! So what now?

That is in game.

As I said, I talked about real life. But as 250swb pointed out, the main purpose was tho make the tank float.

Also, as I said too, it prevents you to be oneshotted bt Types and FV, as it pre detonate HE.

I've witnessed a TVP 50 failing to pen all shells in the clip but one for shooting at an angle.

 

Conversely, AP rounds going on a tangent, pen the spaced armour and exit it without striking the main body armour. I'd say, in game at least, it is quite effective.

 

EDIT: I have forgotten to mention the TVP was shooting HEAT. Though it should be quite obvious since it's spaced armour the matter in discussion.
