100+mm guns are able to pen my T29, T30, and T34 while sidescraping regardless of angle, sharp or not. ive checked armor inspector and said that a 12.8cm PaK would not be able to penetrate my T29 while sidescraping, however, i checked in-game, and he penned without having any problem. im well aware 3 of these tanks have 51mm of side armor near the engine bay unlike the claimed "76mm". I dont play my t30 as a sniper at all, i play it like a support role (bottom tier) or brawler (top tier). is just me or is something going on? here are my main account stats: https://www.blitzsta...otTheOtherGuy__

Think about shell normalization.

 

Also, those three you mentioned have a weakspot on the rear engine, that is much easier to pen than the rest, that may be it.


I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.

Here, check the wiki for pen mechanics, specifically, the part about the 2 caliber rule.

American tanks are very easy to pen when sidescraping. The best way to play them is hull down abusing the gun depression and turret armor.

The side scraping angle on American Heavies is dramatically sharper than you think. Even if angled correctly you will probably just get nailed through the rear drive wheel. Their armor is bias modeled to only be effective while hull down. Not because they’re American per se, just because that’s how the armor algorithm seems to treat them. 
The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

Here’s a tip don’t side scrape unless you really need to the United States heavies for the most part are all hull down tanks with great gun depression so go hull down in them
