The tier 10 American tank destroyer T110E4 might not share the same overwhelming armor that it’s counterpart T110E3 has, but it does have quite a bit of armor that can prove to be difficult to penetrate from the front. While the T110E3, T110E4, and T110E5 all share the same “egg shell” shaped hull the angles on the hull differ slightly from tank to tank making their armor schemes differ slightly.
The index at the bottom of each picture describes a few abbreviations used and also the format in which the armor details are described in. Effective Armor (EA) refers to the overall effectiveness of the armor without normalization. I apologize for the small font size for some areas but due to the nature of taking screenshots and not being able to zoom in on some areas(without having a ton of individual pictures) I did my best to fit them into one frontal view. The UFG(Upper Frontal Glacis) sections are below the turret, LFG(Lower Frontal Glacis) is below the UFG, and the numbered areas are found on the turret/cupola areas of the T110E4.
Frontally the T110E4 has a considerable amount of armor if you do not aim well and hit the stronger portions of it’s armor. Like other T110 series tanks it’s lower glacis is a prime weak spot that for the most part is very weak for most tanks that are facing the T110E4. Unlike the T110E4 the armor actually gets a touch stronger the closer to the tracks you go and instead you should shoot at the part towards the center of the lower glacis. The upper glacis should be avoided at all costs unless you are firing down into it to negate that high angle.
