The T28 is the tier 8 TD for the E3 line.
It is a tank that sacrifices speed for armor.
But then the armor actually sucks.
Let me put it this way.
The only areas that will bounce shots are the mantlet and the armor around it.
The Plate under the mantlet can be penetrated by most guns, and if they can't pen that you have 2 cupolas on top of the tank.
So it is a tank with bad armor bad speed and an average gun.
There is really no reason to get the T28 over the Proto.
Even the ferdi has better armor.
But ferdi has better speed and a better gun.

Oh and did I mention if you get penetrated in the plate that wg invented on the t28 your engine breaks?
And then you turn into a t95 with broken tracks.

Yeh the t28 suffered alot from all the new tanks that came after it making it even worst than it used to be, T28 Prot is superior in almost every aspect.

Yeah I got the T28 the other day and instantly regretted it. Gone from the epic T25 and its insane firepower/mobility/camo with respectable armour if you can utilise a hill to the slow T28 and its... well awful everything. For the sacrifices made it should be nigh on immortal from the front, because if you get it side on or rear on, its dead. hell even tracking it isn't difficult.

T28 is simply a T95 without the second pair of tracks after all... So it should have the same shape & front armor... It's the worst tank I've ever played actually, simply because it's T8. The problem are not the gun or the mobility, it's this damn useless UFP... seriously, people DON'T AIM my cupolas at all unless I found some hull down position, which is almost impossible.

 

Make the T28 a T95 without the other tracks, without the 155mm, without the 200mm cupolas it have, but with 305/50/50 armor and I will play it again.

 

That's my opinion.

All the pictures I've seen of T28 / T95 (it's the same tank) don't have the idiotic 200mm plate below the gun, that T28 has. So it actually is supposed to look like a T95 with one set of tracks. I'm not sure how adding a huge UFP reduced the armor of the tank (?), but it was balanced at the time. And then the gold ammo came pouring down.

 

Giving it 305/50/50 armor would be realistic, but it would just make it from UP to OP. Perhaps a better approach would be to make it 225mm all over (*all over the front) and 250 on the gun. And seriously buff the hp of the gun. Any hit to the mantle breaks it.

Might need? Might need ? This tank should have been buffed already in the dark past of patch 8. or even earlier. Everyone playing this thing should get medal for enabling others players to complete Expert USA achievement

If you removed the unrealistic weakspots that are the cupola you might have a good tank.  Same goes for the T95.  If you knew the enemy tanks would shoot your cupola would you consider putting it on the tank in the first place?

I think they put them there to grant crew some way to see the surrounding. They are not just for show. But nobody shoots cupolas anyway, frontal armour except upper part is only 175mm (T28)

Or they should remodel the tank to its proper shape and size and give it the 305mm armour.

Would be nice. But I dont think that would happen any time soon :-)

I can only imagine the gigantic brown turd that is the T28 being buffed in the following ways:

 

1) As stated above, remove the completely made-up LFP and make it a T95 with the 120mm gun

2) Remove the absolutely retarded 18 kph speed limit (that also goes for the T95, it is by FAR the worst Tier 9 Tank Destroyer because of that, not to mention that these days even the frontal armor of the T95 is a complete joke) and make it move at a decent 35 kph

3) ...remove it altogether and replace it with something that is actually decent.

 

Yes, T28 Prot is superior to the T28, but that's because the T28 is downright useless, broken... you name it. It's not like the T28 Prot is actually a GOOD TD. But both have been rendered absolutely obsolete by the Borsig, an abomination that I hate with a passion for how idiotically OP it is

In my mind it is the other way around as the T28 has something that resembles armor and a higher DPM as it has less reload time. But I agree that both are horrible in todays meta.

The last tank that I free-xped through was the VK30.02D a few months back... but this?

This makes the VK30.02D look distinctly competitive. I'd sooner gouge my eyes out than continue playing it in its current form. Probably due to the fact that it is very clear that the intended role for this thing was 'armoured behemoth', but instead you find yourself with all the downsides of having lots of armour, without actually possessing any armour that's worth talking about.

 

T28 - Seriously in need of some hot loving.

found this thread about T28. Lots of interesting informations. General consensus among unicorns seems to be : SELL this instant! :-D

The VK3002D, like it or not, is MUCH more competitive than the Panther. And I LOVE the Panther, but I could never master the VK (even though I enjoyed it a lot and have rather nice stats in it... though I'm pretty sure if I played now they would be a lot better)
