The T-54's the turret armor profile is a bit wonky, especially the area above the cheeks. It's flat and easy to pen, which is odd because the parts I circled in the attached picture differ between the actual armor profile where the area is flat and the tank's texture model, where it's round. I still bounce shots with the tank's turret, but I also easily pen the upper cheeks on another T-54 with low-pen guns in those spots. What the deal with the armor? Shouldn't the armor be rounded all the way through like the T-55A's armor profile?

Its not going to be impenetrable, it has weakspots that are there for a reason.

The turret gets misshapen because that’s where the extra bias is stored.

The upper cheeks stick out like horns (Ok, I might be exagerating) I wonder if that was a part of the T-54 nerf years back. 

If the turret armor profile matched the actual shape of the turret, the tank model would be more accurate.
