T26E5 top armour problems

The T26E5 upper turret armour is totally wrong, you cant pen it even with a type 99 L15A2 shell.

In the image you can clearly see the armor has been perforated, but no damage is done to the crew.

A 0° top to down shot with the same shell yields a very different result, so it would suggest the problem stands with the angle of attack, but with the shell being HE, the angle should not matter.

Additional Images regarding the problem.

Yepp, I can reproduce it. Actually it seems to be a problem with Cast-Turrets which are modeled with “Variable Thickness” of armour generally. HE seems to have a direction on them.
