A long-awaited addition to the “hard-headed” American heavy tanks. With its powerful 155mm cannon, the T30 will be the grand prize of the War Thunder winter marathon!

I'm thinking what's the point if I already have T34 also the repair cost of T30 is 13k!!! Any advantage of T30? All Discussions Screenshots Artwork Broadcasts Videos News Guides Reviews. T30 is a VERY fun tank, its just not amazingly good. It works, but its not.

The T30 heavy tank project was developed within the framework of the same program as the T29, which should be familiar to our players, but it got a much more powerful gun: a 155mm T7 cannon. In point of fact, the T30 was designed to battle fortifications, so it can be classified as an assault tank.

The T30 has the highest-caliber weapon in this series of heavy tanks, and in terms of gameplay it has all the advantages of its line, including reliable defense for the front part of the turret, an accurate and deadly gun, a large crew of six men, and several machine guns. With its impressive 65-ton mass, the tank can reach a speed of 36 km/h, which is just fine for a vehicle of this class. The gun installed on the tank is unique for the game – you won’t find any other vehicle with that gun. Tank commanders can choose from four types of rounds: two armor-piercing varieties with a penetration of up to 197 mm, a very interesting high-explosive shell with 54 mm of penetration, and smoke rounds. Despite the high weight of the ammo, the cannon is quite accurate and has comfortable horizontality for firing at medium range, although it doesn’t exactly reload quickly. The good defense of the gun mantlet makes it possible to “tank” with the turret – only a few kinetic rounds from rank IV can really threaten the defense of the front section, so you only have to worry about the HEAT rounds and ATGMs that can already be encountered in battles. The best application of the T30 is a positional attack or point defense while relying on the powerful cannon and gun mantlet. Don’t forget about the long reload time and relatively weak defense of the hull, and try to fight in a group of allied tanks, and you’ll have lots of fun with the T30. It’s one hell of a tank!

The Heavy Tank T30 was a World War II American tank project developed to counter new German tanks, such as Tiger I, Tiger II, and tank destroyers, such as 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.

Early tanks[edit]

Plans for four pilot heavy tanks were put forward in 1944; two T29 with a 105 mm gun and two T30 with a 155 mm gun.[2]

The T30 pilot models were started in April 1945 and were delivered in 1947.[3]

Apart from modifications to fit the different engine, the chassis was the same as the T29.[4] The 155 mm (6.1 in) gun fired separate loading (shell and charge) ammunition. The loader was assisted by a spring rammer.[5] The T30 was fitted with one of the largest guns ever used on an American tank. The notably high, rounded edge, turret was needed to accommodate the standing loader and large gun mount. Even then the gun could only be loaded at limited elevations. It could carry a mixed assortment of 34 T35E1 HVAP (high-velocity armor piercing), M112B1 and T29E1 APCBC-HE (armor-piercing capped ballistic cap high-explosive) M107 HE (high explosive), or M110 WP (Smoke) rounds.[6][7]

T30

Variants[edit]

One pilot model, designated T30E1, had an automatic system added to load the ammunition. This brought the gun breech into position, loaded the round and then returned the gun to the initial angle. An additional hatch at the back of the turret was added for the automatic ejection of the empty shell casings.[8]

Is War Thunder Good

The weight of the shell was 43 kg (95 lb) and the charge 18 kg (40 lb), a total of 61 kg (134 lb) for the whole round, which made it difficult to handle and gave it a rate of fire of only two rounds per minute when manually loaded.[9]

Survivors[edit]

There are surviving examples in Fort Benning, Georgia.[citation needed] One surviving T30 is at the Detroit Arsenal in Warren, MI. Another is at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.[10]
