does it change the protection or is it just cosmetic changes for x-ray view?

What the protection on protection analysis? X-ray doesn’t give us a complete picture on the armour rework

not the 480mm it should be

its also 450mm on live, at least on the right side, so nothing changed

now the Mk.2 has more armor, against 3BM-42, on the left turret cheeks then the Mk.3
