How is Armor Protection(%) in vehicle basic characteristics calculated?

Edit:this reply is not correct for the question.

 

No one really knows and the Staff never replied to my question

 

All I've heard is it increases a hidden stat for armour quality and increase bounce chance.

But I cant say if its true or if it does something to reduce penetration RNG.

I pretty sure it doesnt increase the thickness.

 

The choice with armour% or HP, I always pick armour%.

because one bounce or a shot not penetrating the tank is worth more then the HP increase.

 

Also, save spareparts for Premium tanks or higher tier tanks. (Unless you really really love that tank)

You can survive lower tiers without the extra equipment and the rate you earn spareparts is terribly low.

I think the question was not about equipment but stats on each tank in the tech tree, armour, mobility, shot effectiveness firepower.

No idea, never thought it was very scientific... Maybe something like average front plate plus turret thickness or just made up :)

Don't know how it's calculated but those bars are gross oversimplifications anyway. You should use an app like armor inspector which shows the exact armor layouts of all tanks if you want to know how strong a certain vehicle is armor-wise.

ah yes, i guess he means this value. 

 

It tells you the extreme basics but I ignore it as it tells you next to nothing.

Even the stats page that say 

"front hull armour 200mm" is not correct as not all the front armour is equal.

 

Use http://tank-compare.blitzstars.com to compare a tank you know 

or 

the app https://armorinspector.com/en/

To look at the armour model in 3d. It is the best money you will spend to do better in Blitz.
