Probably because first internal plate is angled . 

 

 But still its rather unusual addition if nothing else if hit it will likely blast away tilles its facing , not to mention elevate danger of sypatetic tile explosion 

 

In any case i dont quite get it why the B3 still uses that stupid ERA layout with considerable gaps in coverage.I just cant imagine ERA being expensive to make in any shape

In any case tre project they should be working on is some heavy APC conversions from old T55-72, at minimum equivalent to BMO-T , but should take a peek at Israeli and Jordanian MBT to-APC conversions.

External modifications to the T-72B3M:

  • 1: Dynamic protection has been added to the over-tracked regiments in the area of the tracked belt as on the T-90M.

  • 2: Added dynamic protection on the cannon mask.

  • 3: Added dynamic protection on the turret.

  • 4: New sensors (kind is unknown).

  • 5: Mechanism for opening armored flaps of thermal sight.

Could new sensors(4) be some kind of a laser warning reciever?

Doesn't look like laser warning receivers , those are typically either mounted on a mast or distributed around the turret. UVZ should do some shopping in Iran ,Iranians bought Slovenian  optic, irradiation sensor and barrel curvature sensors in licence .

 

For tanks with dynamic protection mast mounted Fotona LIRD 4 manufactured by Iran these days would be a masive upgrade

Number 4 is likely to be a sat nav.
