I don't see why you call the t28 f30 a gem when the standard T28 is 100 times better. :angry:

Well for me the f30 is better than the normal one.I guess it is about tastes.

Everybody that bought some boxes should have this tank already, why sell it for way too much, ruining low tier ever so slightly more again?

I remember when the original T-28 had the speed of the current one and the gun of the F-30, great machine in that form for players that knew how to play.

Same here. That gun is a blast, no matter you are thrown in a Tier 6 game.

Nice tank, shame that you now have to pay for what used to be free in the tech tree, but still love mine :)

 

Bounced a couple of shells from one last night at close range in my Valentine 2 and the driver of the F30 did the most curious wiggly dance in between shots, but leaving the front of his vehicle completely exposed, farmed him nicely - I bet he would have been abusing me if he could cross team talk :) Guess the guy didn't get the memo about keeping your distance in this tank ...

It is definitely a 50/50 chance for this gun to hit water if it fell out of a boat - but when it connects, by jingo it's good :)

This is a stat padding tank in my opinion. Use rammer, gun laying drive and your choice of either vents or optics and don't rush in front. Your armor is weak and flat and it will prove no match for the enemy. You can however angle your long hull and they might be tempted to shoot the autobounce area.

It seems like a logical upgrade from the tier 3 t29 ;D.

I would advise against it, its crew composition is weird (has 2 radio operators I think), and there are better Russian medium tank crew trainers (rudy, t34-85m, even though this one has 1 radio operator instead of a dog).

Got it play it occasionally that gun is able to one shot a lot of targets it meets.

 

Current problem in the game is its assumed that after a certain time playing the game playing at low tiers is unfair and we should automatically progress up the tiers and play only high tiers.

Well yes some truth in that but to be honest that's true even at the mid tiers.

 

anyway back on point its a good tank for its tier, slow big side target some armour but its the gun that makes it.

Even given its accuracy and horrible aim time, its expected that you will be putting good crews in it at some point.

So you can minimise the bad points.

Carry some HE its very useful at that tier 43 pen 280 damage

Most paying players got this tank about a month ago with the boxes.... They could have tried selling us a tank the majority doesnt own yet. :o

I avoided posting a meme 'cause I already got slapped on the wrist last time. Heaven forbid I would get a normal warning and start crying.

Yeah, that's a bit extreme. But having given up on grinding a lot of lines, I can afford to spend much more credits than I used to.

A good laugh is priceless. :justwait:
