If you take the official twitter's account of how the Panzer IV survived that shot by the StuG III in episode 3 as canon, then it does, where apparently the shot was only a few millimeters off from destroying a vital part, but missed instead. Basically the equivalent of hitting the helmet but missing the head by a hair's width

Also, the Tiger (P) was angled towards the enemy, so it can further increase its effective armor against the tanks leveled against it.

On Flying: "For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return."
