View PostCelestia, on 18 January 2012 - 08:44 PM, said: Concerning the Side armor of the IS-3
>30mm Plate layer covering a portion of the 90mm hull above the tracks
Which is causing allot of shells to penetrate the plate, and bounce on the hull armor
Total armor thickness required to penetrate is ~130mm
Ammunition Used: Regular AP shells: M46 Patton, T34, T30
Range: 0m
(90 degree = perpendicular to the hull, 0 degree = parallel to the hull)
220mm pen at 70 degrees = Failed to penetrate
250mm pen at 60 degrees = Failed to penetrate
270mm pen at 45 degrees = Failed to penetrate
Is the 30mm plate meant to be this effective at causing AP shells to bounce on the hull?

Overlord: It's not side skirt that gives most of the protection. Let me explain. Being practically not sloped it just gives additional 30mm, however the side armour itself is rather tricky, first of it's highly sloped and what's more important it's hidden from players being covered by side skirt. So it's really hard to figure out the actual impact angle.
So in the worst case we can get approx up to 70deg angle which makes: 90/cos70+30=293mm of effective thickness. It's maximum angle of course. Usually things are better.
