T-28 wasn't bad for the time, but got outdated by year 1941, because tanks evolved really fast back then.
KV-1 heavy tank was a strong adversary and had the heaviest armor at the time, German tanks were no match for it.
Unfortunately, they came out in 1940, so Soviets didn't produce much of them.
T-34 proved to be more effective, because it was faster and easier to produce. Even with reduced armor (which was sloped, so more effective), German tanks were still no match when they first faced it.
They preferred to take them out by other means, like bombers, artillery, anti-tank guns, cutting off supply lines etc.
Germans were really good at that - this was their main tactic of Blitzkrieg. Put all the force in 1 point, penetrate the defense line, surround from behind, cut off supplies, then just wait till they surrender, while bombing them with artillery and air raids. Worked great in the conquest of Europe, and Operation Barbarossa at first.
Later, Germans equipped their tanks with heavier guns, so they could fight KV-1 and T-34
A lot of haters say 'well, they just overrun Germans with numbers, no disregard for their soldiers lives' but look at it this way: Soviets could put more men in tanks, who would otherwise have to fight on foot. At least in T-34 you were almost invincible to small arms and explosion debris etc.
The major thing where Soviet tanks lacked, was radio communication and experienced crews/commanders. Air force was also vastly outdated compared to Germans, so Soviet tanks couldn't count on air support. German planes being much faster, could evade air fights when outnumbered, or to force a fight when they had the upper hand. Tanks can't do much against air raids.
Most casualties were from the start of the war due to very effective German surprise Blitzkrieg tactics, experienced commanders and Luftwaffe, not the tank superiority.

Dude what? T-28s were rare. The t-34 was already in production before germany even invaded poland. Russian tanks were arguably superior to the pz3 and pz4. The vast majority of shit Germans faced was t-34s and kv-1s. To give you an idea only 500 or so t-28s were ever produced. 10 times the number of Kv-1s were made.
The average German armored vehicle on the fron was inferior to a lot of the russian armies equipment and was out numbered 3 to 1. Germany only made it as far as they did on the back of air power and superior doctrine.

"Despite this, the Soviet corps equipped with these new tanks lost most of them within weeks. The combat statistics for 1941 show that the Soviets lost an average of over seven tanks for every German tank lost." Even when the Germans had "inferior" equipment, they still managed this. Whether it was the tank itself, or the management of it, it still is an embarrassment. The only battles I could find about the KV-1 were ambushes or something similar.

Literally nobody has been saying that. It's always "U.S. history."

Yeah. Like, it was the site of one of the more infamous massacre of native Americans by US soldiers.
