The T28 Super Heavy Tank was an American heavily armored tank/self-propelled gun designed for the United States Army during World War II. It was originally designed to be used to break through German defenses of the Siegfried Line, and was later considered as a possible participant in the planned invasion...How many T-28 tanks were made?
The T-28 tank was officially approved on 11 August 1933. The T-28 had one large turret with a 76.2 mm gun and two smaller turrets with 7.62 mm machine guns. A total of 503 T-28 tanks were manufactured over the eight-year period from 1933 to 1941.What was the T-28 used for in WW2?
The T-28 was deployed during the 1939 Soviet invasion of Poland, and the Winter War with Finland. During the initial stages of the Winter War, the tank was used in direct fire missions against Finnish pillboxes. In the course of these operations, it was found that the armour was inadequate and an upgrade was initiated.What happened to the T28?
Now what? They got a Army Reserve tank recovery company to remove the T28 and deliver it to Knox. Today it rests very peaceably at Ft Benning, now the home of Infantry and Armor. Apparently one was damaged in testing in 1947–8 and scrapped.
