      Most armoured fighting vehicles are manufactured of hardened steel plate, or in some cases aluminium. The relative effectiveness of armour is expressed by comparison to rolled homogeneous armour.

          We had invited this man to share our taxi. We had to take him to the right place.

            Most armoured vehicles are best-protected at the front, and their crews always try to keep them pointed toward the likeliest direction of the enemy. The thickest and best-sloped armour is on the glacis plate and the turret front. The sides have less armour, while the rear, belly and roof are least protected.

                    Before the Second World War, several tank designers tried sloped armour on new tank designs. The most famous and successful example of this approach at the time was the T-34. Angling armour greatly increases its effectiveness against projectiles, by increasing the effective perpendicular thickness of the armour (which however offers no weight advantage), and by increasing the chance of deflection. German tank crews were said to be horrified to find that shots fired at T-34s would sometimes simply ricochet.
