Never used in combat. If you want to play it buy the SWOWW2 expansion pack.

The T-28/T-95 is as likely to appear in the mod as the Maus is, which is very unlikely in the forseeable future.

There was talk of using them to breech static defenses like bunkers and walls but they were never shipped to Europe.

IIRC one is sitting at the Patton museum of armor.

That thing surely looks bad-ass, with that type of gun i'd say it was to be an uber Allied StugIIIG

Well, atleast the Maus(s) had an interesting end, fighting to the bitter end at their factory. It would make a cool map some where in the future...

Honestly, if the battle at kummersdorf did include the maus, can you visualise the expressions on the Russians faces as even their heaviest of tank hunters rounds bounced off. And the sight of one of the maus' 128mm L\55 guns firing and literaly ripping a T-34 off of the ground and throwing it. Not to mention the 75mm L\36 destroying the advancing infantry. It would have made for quite a sight. As for the T-28 it was never used. It had problems because it used 4 tracks (2 on each side) and sank quite alot. Also there was a huge problem with the inner tracks breaking. This then ment removing the outer tracks to replace the inner ones. A 4 hour repair turned into an 8 hour struggle. As for the location of the other surviving T-28, it is either at the Aberdeen testing grounds or Fort Knox, I forget. There is one for sure at the Patton museum as mentioned. Edit: Also lets not forget that this beasts top speed is a whopping 8 mph, and was only able to achieve 1/4 a mile per gallon of fuel consumed. This makes a rather huge burdon on resources that could be more well spent on the bettlefield.

if the gun on the jagdtiger is the same as the maus, then it's 12.8cm L/71, not L/55.

I read about this tank a long time ago, but wasn't it designed to punch through the Siegfried Line. Supposedly those 88's would just bounce off the armor. I could be wrong, but wasn't it a whopping 95 tons?
