T28 proto has a slight area between turret and most of front plate that is very weak if at a good angle. E75 you shoot the hatch (still ~200mm iirc) or the 'bulges' on the turret cheeks, they're rounded so hard to hit right but only 160mm i think. Other than that aim at lower plate and pray the person doesn't angle it enough or sides if hes angling too much
I'll give that a shot on the t28proto.
E-75 hatch... IS/IS-6 has 175mm avg pen and only 217 with gold rounds. That hatch is non-starter with AP rounds, and about a 50/50 penetration with a perfect hit and gold rounds.
Löwe has the penetration - I managed to turn around and put one right into the cupola for 350 damage on an E-75 that popped up behind my Löwe in Ruinberg yesterday. I was pleased with myself, till I realized that a) he still had roughly the same number of HP I did, and b) he then put a round through the thick part of my front glacis, killing crew and doing a bunch of critical damage. It took about another minute for him to finish killing me.
I know the answer is 'hang back and snipe', but the battle had already moved towards the cap, I'd moved in to snipe from just past the meadow/city line, and the E-75 was on the other side of the map. But he killed the heavies he was fighting, and swung across to clean up.
Hoping the IS-3 is better about this, at least once I get the BL-9, though the sense I get is that it's still just OK on penetration, and accuracy isn't great for weak-spot penetration at ranges beyond 'very close'.
