Surplus of T-28 tanks in the game.
First of all, a few numbers about T-28.
Total production – 503.
111 of them in 1940 was upgraded to T-28E(there was added additional armor plates plus various replacements of equipment).
It's a difficult to say about exact number of T-28 at start of the war. Probably around 400-480.
Next. T-28 in units. I can't found any comfirmations that 297th tank btn(in Hanko),4th TD(Western M.D.),15th TD(Kiev M.D.),6th and 54th TD(Transcaucasus M.D.) had T-28 tanks. More likely that it's confused with T-27 tankettes or something.
6 Tank divisions that had T-28:
1st – 31 tank (plus 7 more was in Leningrad for repair)
3rd – 38
2nd – 27
5th – 30
8th – 68
10th – 51
There is not a much info about where was upgraded T-28E. Only approximate.
2 was in Western M.D.
Around 15% was in Kiev M.D.
And rest in Leningrad M.D. I guess it's because T-28' factory(“Krasnyy putilovets”, from 1934 renamed to “Kirovskiy zavod”) was in Leningrad.
How we can calculate this. We're know total number of T-28E – 111.
Because of rear bases of Baltic,Western and Kiev M.D.'s had huge losses most or even all tanks that was out of Tank divisions we can “to write off”.
So, let 1 tank in Western M.D will be written of and other will be moved to pool.
15% in Kiev M.D can be splited between 8th and 10th TD, e.g. each can gain 8 tanks.
And all T-28 in the 1st Mech corps gain T-28E “status”.
Final composition of T-28 in the TD's:
1st – 31 “E”
3rd – 38 “E”
2nd – 27
5th – 30
8th – 60 “normal” + 8”E”
10th – 43+8
Ok, now we've 160”normal”+85”E” in the divisions instead of 184+227.
What about pool.
We're reduced total number of “E” to 110 . So,110-85(in units)=25. 25 “E” can be added to pool.
With “normal”T-28's for pool it's more difficult story.
There is report for the“Tank” department of RKKA on 1 June,1941. There are numbers of tanks in various conditions of repair status (total 4 categories). Because we're accepted “wiped out” of rears of 3 M.D., we only can use some “normal” T-28 from others(Moscow and Volga). I guess it's would be right if we'll count only 2nd and 3rd categories of repair status. It will be total 15 “normal” T-28's.
Final total numbers:
“normal” T-28 in units 160 + 15 in pool. Total 175.
T-28E in units 85 + 25 in pool. Total 110.
7 T-28 in 10th was “damaged”.
I guess there can be added same status for minimum 10% of T-28 in the units if they don't have it.
A small remark about position of 5th Tank division(3rd Mech corps of Baltic M.D.) in Alytus.
Alytus it's a town on both sides of Neman river. And 5th TD was covered eastern side.
I think need to move this unit to one hex to east (to 55.51).
