Calibers exact or rounded?

The ingame display rounds armour thicknesses with decimals (for example, 2 in/50.8mm -> 51mm) even though the numbers are exact in the hitbox models, but do you know if this applies to calibers as well? Does a 152.4mm gun act like a 152mm gun in terms of game mechanics (thus failing to overmatch 50.8mm plate)?

Unfortunately, I do not understand the game mechanics. The site shows the values ??of the game client "as is", but long fractions ??are truncated to two digits.

Well I suppose you could test it by firing a 152(.4)mm gun on a 50.8mm plate at a bad angle and seeing if it ricochets or not.

I'll go and try it out.

EDIT: It seems to work.

152mm AP overmatched the middle plate.
