I just realised something that for the Conway and the FV4005 as in both their descriptions their hulls are based off Mark  three Centurion which has an upper plate armour thickness of 120 mm whilst at the moment both the Conway and the FV4005 have an upper plate armour thickness of 76 mm which is the same as the Mark one Centurion.

the charioteer I've noticed is a welded Cromwell Hull which are known upper plate thickness of 100 mm instead of the 63 mm as in game as the Cromwells probably used for conversion would have not been riveted version of this tank but this version insteadhttp://www.wardrawin...romwell-Mk7.htm, as Production was based on a mixed fleet of Cromwell VI, VII, VIIw and VIII vehicles of mixed hull types. While all were upgraded to VII standard, some hull differences remained based on the vehicle's past. As a result, the vehicle continued to be known as Charioteer, Mks. 6, 7, 7w and 8 with hull types D, E and F.

It would be great if the armor was increased as the Conway needs all the help it can get.....

also the Challenger hull armour should have an  upper plate thickness of 100 mm instead of the 63 mm as in game as the Cromwells probably used for conversion would have not been riveted version of this tank

So the Challenger and charioteer are extended Cromwell chassis?

Yeah. I think the Charioteer had some additional armour but so did late Cromwells.
