Atlas turnout angle

As said in another thread, I about to order Woodland's Scenic Ridge kit. However, I want to use Atlas C55 instead of the C80 and solder turnouts from Fast Tracks.

Now I am wondering about the Atlas "Standard" turnouts: Are they #4?

From what I have read, they are not a "true" number 4.

I can not prove or deny this information however.

Thank you very much for the answer.
That "about right" is good enough for me .... I only needed the information for planning purposes.
I checked the fast Tracks site. They mention fourteen point something degree for the #4. That comes close to the 15 degree of European standard switches (assuming that Atlas still uses the old Roco design)

Shpouldn't have thrown away my C80 stuff  :(
