I can't figure out how to use the T28. I have massive problems with the mobility/agility, I don't find the armor to be all that impressive, and the gun isn't great enough to manhandle people outside of my tier. The problems seem almost innumerable... for a tank that has given up (almost) everything for its armor, the armor isn't very good. You've got a 200mm glacis, 250mm superstructure, and ~150mm cupolas. It's low to the ground, so many heavies simply can ignore the armor in close combat. The side and back armor is basically nonexistent, and the completely flat roof means a SPG that lands a shell anywhere other than the frontal armor is very likely to pen. It doesn't have much HP, so using the armor it does have is never safe. It turns like a log, so if anything even remotely mobile gets close to you, you're likely to be hugged. And to top it all off, it's a tank that relies on DPM instead of alpha, so somehow you have to keep people in front of your immobile 120mm without them simply buggering off and leaving you to rot. Did I mention this thing moves at 15km/h? So... yeah. Am I just looking at a bad tank, or is there really a way to make this work? I sure as hell could make the T28 Prototype work, I can't believe how much harder this is. (also, my T28 stats are from shortly after release, so don't bother with those)
