The Heavy Tank T30 was a World War II American tank project developed to counter new German tanks, such as Tiger ITiger II, and the Jagdtiger or Soviet heavy tanks, such as IS-1 or IS-2. The T30 was designed at the same time as the T29 Heavy Tank.

and I honestly do not see any reason to open a suggestion for the T-30 as the BVV_d have said all American heavy (T-29, T-30, T-34) line will enter the game later this year.

Commander could shout at the Gunner to lower the gun only to be shouted back at by the loader saying he's still trying to load the gun! Would be a brilliant little situation!

There are some things that Gaijin just can't do in this game, and I'm pretty certain locking the reload for a certain angle is one of them. Besides, the T-62 would also have to have this realism factor put on it as it could only reload when the gun was at 0 degrees because the tiny cramped turret.

 

Also I'm pretty sure the T29, T30, T34 series was already confirmed by BVV_d

Is there any data on the filler for that apcbc shell? Or is it all speculation like the T13 shell for the T5E1?

Yeah, had a HVAP shell.... I've mentioned it elsewhere: 5 rounds were made, of which three were fired, of which, one blew up in the breech, and the other blew up/blow out the barrel. I would have to assume that the third fired round was successful, but that means any penetration data for it would have to be calculated, OR, that any rare existing data of it would be one-of, and prone to potential error. 

 

 

But I mean, 2,200 ft/s isn't that screaming fast. About 720m/s... For that big of a howitzer, it's massive, but, it's definitely going to need a range finder for any kind of long-range work.

 

 

uhhhhhh the t30's turret armor is like the t32 but its like the size of the mause's turret 

 

Seeing that the Maus' turret is like... the size of an Olympic swimming pool... I don't think they're the same size :\

turret armor isn't anywere near t32... frontal sides are 159mm at 45 degree, mantlet after complex mesurment is only 204mm, 279mm is near gun like in m48, but at much smaller area.

turret sides are 127mm

I didn't ask about turret sizes. I didn't even mention the turrets, I don't know where you got this from.

The turret is the main source of the tank its armor is very thick and hard to pen

I'm all for it, if they get the armor right.  They probably need to do that measurement with a lot of tanks to get their true thickness right.  It shouldn't be too high of a BR though unless it gets HEAT.  Since, the AP is underwhelming for penetration, granted anything that it can penetrate will die due to 635g HE filler.  The HE may be pretty nasty though.  And I do have very limited information on the 155mm HVAP.
