Charioteer turret ring

The charioteer's turret ring is at an absurd 14mm in-game currently. Looking at the data on it (top left), I'm trying to work out what the figure should be;

So for the bottom half of the turret ring it's (75.8" - 68.775") / 2. Which is about 3.5 inches or 90mm. 
The top half is a little more tricky, its (68.775 - 64) / 2 and then plus around 1 inch(?). Which comes at roughly 3.4 inches or 86mm. 

Is this good enough proof for the slug overlords to correct the turret ring thickness?

Not that it would make that much difference anyway, given that the Charioteer has basically no armour. :lol:

Turret rings are odd ludicrously weak in game on most tanks yet the t34 has a 60+mm one without any easy to exploit gaps odd how that is eh.

Loads of British tanks in WT seem to have their turrets sitting proud and exposing the turret ring - IRL it wouldn't matter much since the gap would be too small but it still doesn't look right compared to photos.

 

Compare the two Cromwells for example, one is proud and the other is flush - can't imagine that there was a design difference so it must be a modelling error.

The Comets turret ring appears to have been buffed recently. So as long as we have some sources to report the Charioteer we should see it changed one day. 

 

The ironic thing is that would make the turret ring the strongest part of the turret.
