Some tanks allready have track add on armor in game and i am suggesting it for more vehicles.
Historically many crews added tracks and other spare parts on the front of the vehicle to get more protection, how much it helped in reality is debatable, if at least it gave a moral boost.
In game it would offer some limited protection (these can be shot off) at the cost of a bit more weight and can save you from a shot or 2 especially badly aimed ones. Furthermore such tracks give the vehicle a more used, fight approved and unique look. Here are some possible looks, tho in game they arent all fixed to historic placements and more can be applied to furhter increase the effect over different survaces.

One of the Pz IIIs appears to have a older 35mm Gun mantled reused as a spaced (50mm away) turret armor.

Overall different parts of other tanks as well as tracks and the Winter and Ostketten were used and should also be put in game.

As unlikely as it probably is Iā€™d love to see vehicle models get visual modification points where you can opt for items from a semi historicly accurate list essentially have a front, left, right, rear, and roof for both hull and turret to choose whether you want stuff like tracks and logs and such
