Need some help with this display.  looking at the Armor layout and Citadel protection there is an oddity.  

Spoiler

From the image you can see, the outer armor protecting the citadel is in red, and is 300mm Thick, but on the inside there is the yellow plating labeled Deck, of 100mm.  Is this an error or is there actually 400mm of armor plating protecting the Citadel of this ship?

Sinop does indeed have 400mm protection on the upper side of the citadel itself. The 300mm outer belt and a 100mm inner bulkhead, as you indicate. However, that's only on the upper part of the citadel, where the 100mm plate is actually part of the citadel hitbox.

The portion you indicate has a 100mm inner plate angled sharply to the outer 300mm plate. But if you turn the casemate off in the armor viewer and turn the citadel on, you can see that at that height on the citadel is an additional 50mm plate for a 450mm total armor thickness.

Mind you, this protects your citadel. If someone goes through the 300mm plate but not the 100mm plate you're still eating a 33% normal pen.
