Is this another seal clubber making a "rare" appearance in the shop?

the most useless premium tank in history with a gun with gun-handling worse than a t49 with the derpy troll-gun

It gets better match-making than the Panther 8.8. :sceptic:

I'd say it's pretty decent, at any rate I have 56% wins in it, so it can't be that bad.  I can certainly think of worse premiums.

 

An 85 mm gun at tier 4 is quite special - the AP or APCR will pen anything (including an O-I) and the HE will obliterate anything with weak armour (i.e. most tanks at tier 3/4 and many at tier 5).

 

Yes, the dispersion and aim time aren't great, but come on - an 85 mm at tier 4....

Useless? If spotted it dies instantly if not top tier sure. It has more armor than the normal T28, so it can troll vs lower tier clip guns. KV-1 top gun one tier down, so accuracy is not ideal at med to long-range obviously. But makes short work of anything close up in tier 4 games. But I bought mine when it did first appear in the calendar a few years ago.... for about £5. So not complaining about it for that price.

 

But in a support role on an open map staying hidden on the 2nd line? Then it can rack up damage fast even with 0.43 dispersion. 2K + damage on open maps vs tier 6 was not that uncommon when I played it last. Crew slots makes it a decent crew trainer. But one thing to keep in mind for those getting it for that. Like the T29 it has 2 radio operator slots. So if you only have one of those with BIA, you will lose it when training crews with it.

It's bad, 0 armor with a gun that aims for days. Don't buy.

Didn't the standard T-28 used to have the 85mm?

 

I recall playing it and remembering how insane it was... Plus the standard tank is much much faster.

This is basically the old T28, before the 85mm gun removal and nerfs. So, yeah. You are right.

Tier 4 is overall the worst tier to play, bottom pretty much all day long.

I found it a pretty good tank when i bought, as long as your no higher than tier 5.  It has the kv1 gun but no armour and a little long aim time.  Haven't played it for an age but used to be ok.

Had one for a while it gets played occasionally but being tier 4 its not something I would want to play all the time.

Only my Luchs gets a lot of play time.

Now if there was a PVE mode where I could use my low tiers that might be fun.

Indeed the old T-28 used to have the F-30 gun. As for speed? Well with the armor being up to 2x thicker all around. It's 16 tons heavier. So you notice it as both have the same 500 HP engine.

Being one of the tanks I learned how to play this game I see it FAR from being useless. 

 

The alpha is amazing and the gun handling acceptable. As a top tier it'll wreak havoc where ever it goes. If you play it smart, you can take out even statpadding Matildas. It's one of my most played tanks having trained me crews for my first Soviet medium tank line and later for IS-7 line and I think I have 58% wins in it even though back when I played those games I was struggling to reach 50% wins total on my account. 

 

I don't play much tier IV anymore and even less so with the strong tanks I used to learn stuff (Matilda, T28 F and Marder 38) but sure if I did, T28 F is one of the better tanks on that tier. Until you get smacked by arty or hetzer, that is. :)

Not in my experience, and I do better (or at least less badly) at tier 4 than any other, make of that what you will.

One of the nice things about it is that the armour means it is not easy prey for those pesky PzKw IC machine-gunners that infest lower tier games

Ha, I got it too. Although I did write something slightly tongue in cheek.

It has the top spec gun of the tier V KV-1, with twice as much armour as the standard T-28, longer view range and much higher camo rating for some weird reason. So not only is it an ideal trainer for the T-28 crew, it looks crazy OP to me.
