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.

I cannot wait to see the rantings about the garbage T30, it was garbage on papers, irl and so it should be in WT. Jan 4, 2019 @ 12:25am I'm gonna agree with Omega here, the tank will proably suck ♥♥♥♥ #12. Jan 4, 2019 @ 12:30am. Effect in World War II Throughout World War II, the T29 and the T30 stayed in development under the priority 'limited procurement'. Eventually, the war in Europe ended in May 1945, but the small ordered stayed in hope it may be useful in the Japan invasion in Operation Downfall.

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]



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]

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]

T30 Vs T34 War Thunder

When it comes to large caliber guns, the Americans can claim to have one of the largest in the game with the recently-added T-30 heavy tank. It has incredible armor penetration but comes with a very long reload time which helps balance out the vehicle.
