As we know, the armor profile of tanks in Tanktastic is just a bunch of values that put together, it does not really show the tank's overall armor value. In my opinion, the number only shows the armor value of the tank's strongest part, for example, the M1A2 Abrams' armor value is 821.3 but it can only show the effective armor value of its upper frontal glacis, other parts of the tank, even the turret are nowhere as strong as the upper frontal glacis. Although the armor is almost useless in 2.0, making the armor profile more detailed can benefit newcomers who have trouble choosing which tank to buy. If the developers can classify the armor into frontal armor, side armor, rear armor, frontal turret armor, side turret armor and rear turret armor instead of putting those numbers together, the armor profile will be more detailed.

It would probably take some work and time to do this it requires writing new stats for a lot of tanks. This would've been way easier in version 1.22 since it had less tanks. Some of these tanks are modern and exact specs are classified.

You don't choose the tank. The tank chooses you, and when it does respect it and it will respect you.

That requires a lot of research especially on the fake-made armata

It's going armored warfare

If they can't find an accurate source, they might as well make it up, but in the most realistic way as possible.

I know the exact specs of an Abrams are classified because the armor makeup is top secret.

You don't choose the tank. The tank chooses you, and when it does respect it and it will respect you.

I would think, as they have already done remodels of basically all the tanks is that this would be done in 3.0.

Not x-ray, "but in the most realistic way as possible."

Something as simple as increasing the armor on certain spots of the tank isn't really copying from other games. It's not that hard for GHOR to do.
