what equipment you guys are running with this? GLD seems a must with that aiming time but for remaining two slots I'm still pondering between vents, rammer and optics/binocs.....

 

Vents + rammer + binos

GLD is only worth taking if you want to combine it with vents, or if you sit still a lot (which is entirely likely with either version of T-28 since they're basically monster pen and alpha TDs in disguise, respectively), otherwise prioritise vents since it gives most of the benefit of a GLD (somewhat less aimtime reduction, but this is combined with aim bloom reduction through improving the gunner's skill rating, which GLD doesn't provide) and a ton of other bonuses.

 

 

I want to ask, has this tank been on sale since March? I kinda hope WG have promised never to sell it again because I like having rare OP things.

Go with Rammer and Vents. Base view range is 350 m, so with some camo on the crew (which you will probably have) you will be pretty hard to out-spot in the open, there are just too few tanks in tiers 3 to 6 with at least 350 m view range.

I don't really like this tank, the gun handling is just so bad. It takes an eternity to aim and during that time the target is already killed by my team mates or I have been shot. Even fully aimed shots can fly anywhere and then you're screwed with that long reload.

Exactly. When I first bought it, I was lucky and it behaved well, had some okay games. But now I rarely even play it, and when I do I regret it. My KV2 has way better gun handling than this tank! It cannot hit anything, it's completely unreliable.  I bought this tank for seal clubbing and having fun, but I stil use Matilda for it because at least Matilda has armor which is reliable when top tier and excellent gun that always hits the target. I just don't like this tank at all - I have good crew with 4 skills + vents/gld/rammer but it still sucks for me.

if you are sniping with this in top tier games you are doing it wrong. this tank is hilariously OP in close quarters where the accuracy and aimtime dont matter, i have shredded multiple matildas and pz B2 with very little effort in the same game they dont stand a chance.

Best case scenario for Brit - Matilda can hit you twice. And then it will still get outtrade by roughly 60%... So no, Matilda got nothing on this monstrosity.

 

I am much more afraid of 105 derps, some really terrible red players use AP in those... and oneshot you frequently.

Total killer! And it laughs to matchmaker: rules the battlefield when it is on top, kills well when in the middle and is an serious threat when it is lowest tier on field. I got two Leiväslaiho medals and one with untrained crew. And this having 30+ battles only. I hope it does not get nerfed soon, but it probably will. :( And this was one of  the first battles with it:

You would have preferred a separate thread for the post then?

Tried it for one game for the luls after getting it in a box.

I mean holy hell, this tank is insane.

They won't nerf premium tanks that were purchasable once after the Super Pershing incident.

Same, it is quite something, its gun handling is atrocious, but the pen and the dmg makes up for it.. my WR is awful in it but it is a great tank to make some quick credits and lots of XP..

 

I got all 3 tanks from the boxes but i have never played the german HT or the british diksentinel... they are just barrack slots for me.. but man this T28 is great... and T4 games are so relaxing compared to higher tier games...

 

Does that qualify me as a Sealclubber? well it feels good..
