There is an update on the M48A1 HD Armour Model:

- Added "beak" armor (150mm at 50 degrees);
- Worse front turret armor, but much better angles because of shape change;
- Front hull shape changed, much better angles and effective armor (270+), but some small areas still very weak;
- Weaker armor when angling like IS-3 pike hull;
- About 50% of the lower front plate is auto bounce to even tier 10 guns.

Overall, quite a big buff, armor will be very troll, easy to penetrate in some areas, and will even bounce tier 10 premium ammo in some places.
