I hope people realise the ingame T28 is complete fiction, whereas the T95 in real life is called the T28 Super Heavy.

 

So no "they should give the tank its proper armour", since the T28 didn't even exist to have an armour layout.

FINALLY got Ace Tanker in this thing. just needed an immensely good match-up and 2 teams that didn't fall over at the first hurdle - both of which are huge asks, I can see the potential of this thing, just a shame it gets gimped in practically every single game it plays. You either end up fighting tier 10s which pretty much autopen the T28, or in a game with loads of artillery, or the ultimate middle finger to the T28, both at once.

 

In case you're wondering just how good the match-up really was:

im grinding this right now and oh boy.. man this thing is horrible.. it really doesnt have anything going for it.. it either needs a bigger gun / a much more accurate gun / more speed / thicker armor.. to even slightly be competitive.. something like a cromwell can totally own this without any risk

This tank is utter crap, I liked the prot a lot as it was kind of flexible with the turret. But this piece of sh*t just aint worth the xp it cost. Everything pens it up front, and if by any chance anyone has the chance to flank you. Well, if you're not dead meat then, you are lucky as few others.

 

What I believe this craptank needs to get competitive is a traverse buff and top speed buff. it's just too damn slow for a TD with no turret, and with side armor the thickness of paper, you are doomed no matter what if enemies comes on your flank.

im 2/3 done and well...

 

-the armor isnt the same of the t95, the "chin" is annoying, counts as transmission, is weak(210-220 effective at best) and limits the gun depression, the lack of the side armor of the t95 makes your sides really vulnerable, is 60mm at best and you will be pierced by arti.

-the gun is ok, but not accurate at all, if you must hit a weakspot or a small area, press esc and leave battle.

-is slow as hell, as expected, but at least could turn a bit faster.

 

is really sad when you lose games because the other side failed and you cant even go back to defend, as for the mastery i guess is pure luck, being able to deal 5k damage without getting flanked or sniped.

Oh yeah? You think i shoot T28 in the mantlet? I have seen AMX 50B empty his clip on it  doing no dmg. Also: my wr tells you nothing about my knowlage of weakspots.

Love my T28, it is very nice and grind to t95 is easy. Yes it is slow, but gun is nice imho better than german ferdi, jpanter. It has nice pen and quick reload time, and yes t28 is better armored than ferdi.

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.

 

Superior? Prot is the same old schithe as T28, armor is on paper, turret cheeks can be pierced by tier 7 med. And no matter if you play T28 or T28 Prot, if you are flanked by any tank and have no teammate to help, you are dead in seconds. And that paper armor spot over the mantlet in T28 (hopefully not everybody knows it's the weakest spot on the front).
The worse tanks I've played so far, I though till now that M3 Lee/Grant are schithe, but no, those are. No wonder that no one plays them, in T28 I did only approx 3800 dmg for Ace Tanker badge and it was in tier 8 match.
The only advantage of Prot is a turret & that you can shoot from behind the hill thanks to better gun depression. I'm even using 100-octane fuel instead of fire ext. equipment to make it a little bit faster but it doesn't help much & 5k credits are dropped into the junk every battle. Those tanks needs a buff in speed & traverse, at least 10-12 km/h faster & 5-7% of traverse increase is strongly required. Or if this 60 ton beast had to be so slow, then give it a real armor all-round: that includes sides & rear, 50-60mm thickness on a side is a joke on that kind of monster, AT2 (which is tier 5 I believe) got approx. 100mm on sides, T28s meets tier 10s a lot, ffs!!! Thanks to it's sluggishness it cannot get into position, missing the chance to actually participate in battles.

Before you can reach a good spot and you are detected in the open field you are dead. There's no fun doing 500 dmg in a battle when your team is good or the same amount of dmg when they are being torn apart after 2 minutes of fighting (you'll get surrounded & dead in no time). I'm really trying to do my best with this tank, trying to avoid going alone, but it's so hard to keep up the pace of a match. Once you have crawled to the middle of the map, the siren sounds & must get back to decap, but before you get there it's all over (or your teammates were faster & have reset base). Those tanks are really making me frustrated & angry and forcing to quit the game in rage. Up to now I've never ever skipped a tank with free-exp, always was ready to grind, even Grant/Lee, T-28 and other shitty tanks, but I'll think I will do this this time for the sake of my own sanity (and my poor keyboard).

That is complete nonsense.

 

Not really, not more like few days ago I bounced 2 times in a row off T-44 front (not angled). I know it got some troll armor, but still. And I've seen a replay when a guy in T28 bounced off Type 59 side 3 times!!! 2nd thing is that the shells are flying everywhere but not inside the aiming circle.

the most annoying part is nearly every shot in front damage your engine :-)

It existed. The T28, Gun Motor Carriage T95 and Super Heavy Tank T28 are all the same vehicle. It got renamed twice.

 

The in-game T28 is simply T95 without it's outer tracks mounted... or at least it should be, because there is actually something wrong with it's armour layout. It should have the same frontal armour, but WG decided to alter it for 'balance reasons'.

The problem with the T28 as some pointed it is that it should be a T95 without the double tracks.  Looking at these weak spot guides you see that the T28 is instead inferior the T95 by a large margin in terms of armor.

SerB himself made the ingame T28 up.

 

And as we all know SerB is an old style communist who hates americans more than everything else. That means he made the T28 as bad as possible.

The title of this thread might be a joke :)

 

T28 needs a buff - for sure.

Horrible tank. IS-3 and many other tier VIII tanks can lolpen its frontal armor on average roll, with gold ammo its 100% pen.

This tank should be given exact same armor like T95 on the front. It would be just T95 without the additional tracks, so literally no side protections, just like they are now while maintaining respectable front armor.
