My friend pointed it put to me just today that the foch has better armour than the foch 155. I thought they both had the same armour layout can anyone tell me why they have 2 different side armour thicknesses?

Because the tier 9 was given the pc Armour buff. The tier 10 wasn't.

When the autoloaders were added to the line the AC 48 and Foch (120) were given stronger side armor, but for some reason WG didn't give the Foch 155 better side armor as well (likely because the Foch 155 on PC still has bad side armor, and instead of adding the Foch B at tier X they just gave that gun as a package to the Foch 155). The tier X's side armor really should match the tier IX, and I mentioned it multiple times back when this change was first made, but they just didn't change it.

Not just that, tier X also has way worse gun arc 6 degrees while tier 9 Foch has 10 degrees! :(
