Personally as a SP driver (and a German heavy driver), I'll slope my armor, but much less than the pic you showed. That angling I will only do when moving around a corner (where I can hide my sides). Otherwise I've found that the sides are too exposed and people just aim for that and not my front. Not to say other SP drivers won't, but..
I included that specific angle since it is generally seen around corners and also it is the cutoff point for the machinegun port weak spot. Described in the guide that if it's at a less of an angle that the sides become stronger and thus you have to rely on the frontal weak spots from the first section. Was tempted to include much more angle views, but I try to find a balance between length and getting the spots across in each guide.
