Wheres the penetration info?

In TOW1 there was an info-box, when aiming a target, telling you the distance to the target and a penetration diagram where you could see how much armor the shell could penetrate at the different distances. I think this was very useful...why is it not there in TOW2?

If You have activated one of Your units and if You point with Your mouse over an enemy armored vehicle and remain in that position for a short while (or in PAUSE mode) a grafic appears and it shows You the armor thickness of that target (sand collored stripes) and the red lines indicate if and to which extend that armor can be penetrated by the currently loaded shell taking the the distance to the target into account. (Easy or medium gameplay difficulty activated however)

"Vertical armor" means nothing in ToW since actual angle between round and armor plate in the place of hit calculated in 3D space and any angle is possible, but yes, APBC is less likely to ricochet at glancing angles (but any round will ricochet at angles like 5-10).
