Look, im not asking which gun to run alright. I know what makes the T30 what it is. Ive T30'd over 700 games. Poke out, hull down preferably , enemy tank in reticle begins back tracking in a panic, export 640 democracy, retreat, repeat. Got it. Been there done that. Its fun, the turret no doubt makes this tank capable of doing what it does in situations only the t30 could be in 

Purists look away or keep reading and forgive me. But I decided to mount the 120mm on a whim and boy oh boy does it sing.. 

"yeah but the pen sucks" 

If you cant make shots with 248 pen this isnt for you. Its not the greatest but its definitely not the worst for its tier either. 

"its just a T34 at tier 9"

wrong, see link below. 

If anything, the 120mm T30 is a better tier 9 heavy than the M103. 

 

The conqueror undoubtedly has a better gun in every regard but lacks the platform to pull off the shots that a T30 can. You can not use the Conqs dpm in a  chokepoint in tier 10 games. (and you shouldnt try) The turret simply does not bounce shots as consistently nor do you have the depression to hide the hull consistently. But you can do this with a T30. All im saying is, if you want to change it up a bit and feel like you're driving a completely different tank, run the 120, bring it to the front line and burn em down. 

 

  • the cent 7/1 in tank compare is running hesh
  • all equipment is the same across all thanks being compared 

 

What should we call it? Although no one could ever mistake it for a T-32 I cant name it the T-30-2 to avoid confusion.   T-320? T-2-30?

whatevr, enjoy.

Technically speaking, the T30 mounting the 120mm is actually a T34. It just has a modified cannon breach and turret bustle.

:facepalm::facepalm: in my attempt to portray the different guns as different tanks, I in fact looked over this completely obvious fact. Honestly kinda embarrassed.  historically, you are correct.  In game I guess we have a similar case to the Tier 9 tech tree jagdtiger and tier 8 premium jagdtiger.  btw i saw before you edited it, i like those extra bits of information. where you afraid it was coming across too nerdy?;) cheers

Actually no I had one of the fact wrong, which was the time line of how the T30 came about. It actually went T29> T30> T34

I'm a bit partial to the 155mm gun myself, that HE is just too good.

This also brings me very much joy. Or blindshotting a known camper bush seeing them emerge half health(':

Then shouldn't it be: T1 Heavy > M6 > M6A2E1 > T29 > T30 > T34, considering the fact that the T34 was a modernized T30, and with that case, T34 should be t10, T30 should be a heavy tank, and T29 should be t8, with of course, some buffs and nerfs

I prefer the 155mm, 248 seems iffy at T10, especially when you're against an IS4 (I have the t30 on my main account)

Technically yes, however the T30 sits at Tier IX and the T34 at Tier VIII due to the T30's more powerful main cannon. The T30 is also a tank destroyer as a "heavy" with a gun of such large caliber and high penetration is... Rather absurd. The T30 used to be a Tier X heavy from what I've heard but it was moved down to a Tier IX TD.

​Keep in mind that the Maus and pre-AP buff E100 have worse pen.  Also, 246 is around average for a tier 10 medium (the T62A and Obj 140 have 240mm of pen).  So no, its not that iffy.

Tier Xs: M48 Patton, E100, T110E4, T110E5, Maus, T57

The 105mm T5E1 actually had better penetration characteristics compared to the 155mm T7, so it's safe to assume the 120mm T53 was better than the 155mm T7 expect in terms of high explosive rounds and spalling armor
