Class C in British therms mean face hardened. For obvious reasons it was British produced plates. I have seen some time ago exact parameters of those plates, but what difference makes it anhyway?
Biger difference is in shell construction.
Repeat 30 degree to plate.Meaningless - what was the declination of the plates ?and the tests were conducted at 30 deg obliquity.
It means 30 degree to plate.
Doesn’t mater if plate declined 15 degree and descend of shell 15 degree ( correspond to distance over 20 km ), or if plate is declined 30 degree, and point blank range.
Simple 3d geometry.
No German tests were flawed. They uses wrong shells!The British tests were flawed.
Yes I know for years that everything British is flawed, and they simply can’t do enything right.
They tested various spaced arrays since 1903.
And through those 40+ years had simply no idea how to do that.
And rest of the world learned in year or so.
Or other possibility is available.
British engineers were equally adequate to imlement various tests ( in 40+ years period, so more than one generation ), but there was some reason why various sides had different conclusions.
1. very different armour plates with very different capabilities
2. very different shells construction, so decapping works different due to various reasons
3. both above.
