Graf Spee - Range Finder Gone Missing

I have had the Premium Graf Spee for a while now, long prior to the High School Fleet/Anime version being added, and recently having taken a look at using it again - it seemed to be wrong, as in it was missing something rather obvious - the upper range finder and mattress radar on the main control tower! - it was bald!!!... a terrible look.  However, being that I am getting old, I thought, well perhaps I am just losing my mind and this is how it looked, it has been a while after all.  So, I did some google looking and nope, I am not crazy... it's missing from even the WOWs images, so, it must have been a bug of mine... verified files, even did a reinstall, checked out... still missing... then I noted that the HSF version doesn't have that feature, and so it seems that this addition is probably the cause of the reg. premium Graf losing it's top.  Is this the case? I would really prefer the original premium Graf Spee have it's historical and original in-game top rangefinder and radar returned, w/o it the ship looks unfinished as a model, and rather horribly wrong, esp., if you have a mild case of historical accuracy OCD every time you have to look at it.

Hopefully you can fix this little niggle of a bug or such - thanks, sincerely the Graf Spee Historical preservation society, inc.   :)

If we are talking the pre-1937 fit for it I might agree with you - but its not flat on top, it's got stuff (ref. German cruiser Admiral Scheer - image under a bridge crossing - that is a big bridge!), and since the WG WOWs image originally posted is of the "River Plate - 1939 version" I would point out that all the photos of her, during the internment and the following day destroyed clearly show a second and additional structure + the "matress" range finder radar setup - it was there in-game, I do clearly remember it - but at some point in an update (I suspect due to the change for the HSF version) it was removed, it may be a different model, as I don't remember the prior one having as much detail and clear windows about the bridge area... so it may be that the original correct Graf has been completely replaced with the HSF model and then the mapping and textures simply changed out... if so, then we probably need to expect that it's not coming back any time soon... poor Graf Spee, she took a hair cut.  :(
