Alright, so I took another look at the US Tank Destroyer tree, and I think many of us overlooked something. Tier 8 is rather odd - there are two branches, with the final tanks being the T95 and the T30 at Tier 9.

But what leads to those tanks (respectively) is the T28... and the T28 Prototype.

Say WHAT?!

What's the difference between the two?! We already have the same tank twice, with the main differences between the T28 and the T95 being additional armor plating, improved suspension, and a bigger gun of course. Upon retrospect, the upgrades may do well in distinguishing the two apart form one another. At least, more so than the T29 series, in my opinion.

But what room is left with a THIRD T28? I can only imagine that there aren't very many strings left to pull in making the T28 Prototype a tank of its own.

Hey Marseille.

I remember Overlord saying somewhere that it's one of their own "creations". It's like the T-29, T-34, and T-30.

They are going to distinguish the T-28 Prototype from the T-28 is probably that it will have other "eye candy" such as an extra shovel and such.

Right not it's like this.

T-28---T-28 Prototype
T-95---T-30

Because the T-28 and the T-28 prototype is the same, T-28 owners should be able to cross to the T-20, and T-28 users will be able to cross over to the T-95.

I think what we're all missing is the real issue here. It's bad enough in conversations that we have the T34 and the T-34. Now we'll have the T-28, the T28, and the T28p. Priorities people.

Names don't hamper your ability to blow up other tanks, do they? ;)

I suppose it would make sense to just make up a tank. They've done that with half our tanks already, so why stop now? :lol:

Because the T-28 and the T-28 prototype is the same, T-28 owners should be able to cross to the T-20, and T-28 users will be able to cross over to the T-95.

First of all: T29, T34 and T30 ARENT game makers creations. They use same hull but were differnet tanks. T34 was T29s variant WHILE T30 was a "completly" other desing.

Second: U will be able to go from T28 Prototype TO T28 but not other way so u have to go thru M18 and then to Prototype to get both T30 and T95.

Third of all: Overlord said that T28 is IN 90% their own design. So i'm expecting to see sth looking close to it but with better/worse armor, worse/better speed etc. :Smile_honoring:

BTW I cant wait for US TDs to roll over on the WoT's battlefield. :Smile-izmena:

The only "fictional" tank is the VK4502(P), which was only ever a paper panzer, all its armour and gun specifications are made up.

Considering the T30 line is turreted, I think that that T28 Prototype could possibly have a turret.

Here's whats really funny. The T28/95 is one tank. It was simply renamed. There is one model-type, one concept tank. Here it has been spread into three tanks: The T28, T28 Prototype, and T95 are all the same tank but the two T28's have had one track chopped off and the developers made some original changes based on their own imagination.

I am not that much of a purest and it doesn't bother me. I like how they are making this turret/no turret tech tree split on the US TD's. It just makes sense considering the importance the US put on TD's in WW2.

Wait, I thought E-75, E-100 were "blueprints only" tanks?
Unless you count a partially completed hull a "tank"

The T28 Prototype: Now even more made up than before!

Seriously though, it's funny how people complain about how the T28's horrible armor doesn't work at all because of how small the working area is and how big that lower plate is, yet their answer is "history!" Yet, there's no history behind it at all. They just lied about it, outright. Now a T28 prototype. There was no such thing. And it will probably be even worse than the already miserable T28. What will they do to this one? Have its gun facing out its ass?

This is the exact reason they gave the current T28 a false front plate and front suspension, to differentiate it between the prototype and the T95.

Realistically the T28 would have been identical to the T95, just with a smaller max gun. (As everyone has already stated a hundred times)

You can tell the difference between the T28 and the T95 without that stupid transmission.

Also the T28 Prototype is in the turreted tank destroyer line and looks very capable of  having a turret on it. So I certainly hope that it can be told apart from the T28 and T95.

SerB said, that T28prototype will have turret with 270 degr. arc of rotation (not fully 360 degr.)

That makes sense. At least it has a turret (so it fits into the tech line it's in) and that turret is limited by something realistic this time (the raised engine block it seems) rather than the GW Panther which is prevented from being a 360 degree turret by an absurdly placed antenna and skirts around the turret that were designed to fold down but not really in this game.

I just realized. When that guy posted that (Early May), none of the E series, American TDs, and many other paper project tanks had entered the game. So yea, at the time. He was pretty close to right *cough*russianarty*cough* :P
