TLDW Summary

T110E5 --- Cupola is now ~240mm than ~260mm @ the center; shoot the sides will still bounce since it's rounded

VK 100.01 (P) Mammut --- Even thicker armor for the turret & cupola than first iteration
Mauschen --- Turret cheeks and UFP is similar to the Maus but LFP is weaker @ ~220mm; Cupola is ~240mm
Type 4 --- Increased sloping of UFP (~65deg vertical to ~70deg vertical); removed extra areas (roadwheel support) for LFP
Type 5 --- Increased sloping of UFP (~65deg vertical to ~70deg vertical); removed extra areas (roadwheel support) for LFP; More uniform armor for both hull and turret front @ ~280mm
