hello again, lets keep it short. The idea behind T28 is slow tank that can take a hit frontaly and can hurt tanks in front of it as well.

Problems with this concept:

  • it does not have armour to fill this role, pretty much anything in same tier can autoaim pen your front and to make it better it has two giantic weakspots on already free overmatch roof

Solution

  • give it the 254mm frontal armour it has on paper (in reality only gun mantlet)

Done, its that simple. Change raw thickness of the front and keep everything else

 

Also T28 should look like this

As long as many people play anything classed as a TD as a basecamping-sniper almost regardless of what the tank "actually is", you don't want to buff TDs.

I didn't know most tier 8 tanks had 240mm+ penetration though? Or if ou assume shots hit exactly where aimed 1000mm+ penetration.

 

Dumb exaggerations doesn't help you in any way, it just dilutes any meaning from your argument.

 

Considering it is your fourth ranked tank in regards to damage blocked (only surpassed by the kv-4, ST-i and allmighty t95) how exactly does your argument that it doesn't have armour hold up?

 

You are aware that armour isn't there to make you invincible, right? IT is there to increase your EHP.

thats true especially with visual model...just like E100 turret...on paper itts turret was similar with Maus turret...but in WOT we got WG plans...

Its simply not like real model (or plans)

 

after that...T28 is worse than T28 prot in almost any aspect...due to this armor wich is a lie. Its same value like on 28 Prot but is slower, no turret and less gun dep.

Simply give him his 254mm of frontal armor and make LFP weaker for balance.

Its easy and will fit better in his line...

I'd never want realism in WoT. You want that, play War Thunder.

The "real" version, that is ingame has additional sets of threads at the side and is called T95. It's already here. Literally the same tank, just missing a few thread.

I find the T28 really good - for a guy like me to get 56% winrate on a tank like that is pretty good. I'd even go as far as saying it's a great tank. I especially love the gun.

The only buff I'd like would be buffing the speed to 25 KPH or giving it more engine power.

nope, for such a slow armored td. that armor is pathetic

 

especially now where it will meet t10 80% of the time.  needs a big buff

I once had a game in it, where I bounced 11K of damage. Far from pathetic armor. Stay at range and try not to expose your UFP too much.
