Even if it's 16 , it doesn't make a lot of differences. Shell that can go thru 27mm will have no problem over match or punch straight through that 16mm plate anyway.

At tier 10 , ships have a lot of penetration power anyway. The only tiny difference would be a slim chance for overpen.

Doesn't make sense? Yeah they should make it say 600mm. That would solve the problem. Now what might the tradeoff be?

Yea... end o the day a des moines can tank like a BB ... and a mino can be citadeled by a fishing trawler shooting spit wads out of a felt tip blow pipe.... i dont think the mino has better armor?

 

As icy alluded to, the des moines has thick bow armor.
