Yeah because an autobounce UFP for anything below 155mm is so terrible.

 

It isn't auto bounce unless you angle at an angle where everyone can simply shoot you in the side.

Oh, did I mention that the lower plate gets overmatched by 100mm guns? (from memory)


I play artillery because I like to promote dynamic gameplay.

ops

right beside the gun to the left and right- lets call them the outer cheeks. 115mm armour, the edges are bounce zones for low tiers (~200-240)

Go further out to each side and you meet the sloped 'side' turret cheeks, 85mm armour sloped- 150mm effective

ONLY the top part of roof is autobounce if you use your gun dep, but the turret ring is still 200mm

-not a reliable turret, especially with no special MM

Sandwiching an autobounce UFP between a large paper LFP and a soft turret is like depending on a bulletproof mustache for protection.
