Why are there no sideskirts on high tier german tanks?

Progetto 65 and Centurion AX have sideskirts. E 50M has not.

Conqueror and Type 4 have sideskirts. E 75 has not.

It is highly confusing to me why some tanks have their sideskirts modeled and others not? Dont get me wrong, E 50 and co have sideskirts modeled, but only in the visual model not in the collision model. This means your shells dont interact with them at all, they dont exist.

Is it because those sideskirts are only thin sheet metal? That cant be the case, because the thin sheet metal storage bins on the outwards angled upper russian side hulls are also modeled.


Does this bendy sheet metal look 30mm (1.2 inches) thick? All russian tanks have this as 30mm spaced armor ingame. Material type and thickness cant be the reason for some tanks having them or not.

E50M, E75, E50, Kpz 50t, Jagdtiger, Jagdtiger88, Tiger II and Tiger II (H) all have sideskirts in the visual model but not in the collision model.

WG should either remove the visual sidekirts or add the collision ones. Dont fool people by adding visual armor plates that dont actually exist. This is just fucking with all those that dont study 3rd party websites like tanks.gg.
