Seriously,, this vehicle has been on crapend of the tier 8 heavies for so long. It has a terrible gun with bad accuracy, pen and alpha while having no hull armor whatsoever.

 

Its turret is its ONLY redeeming feature and its almost impossible to use it because going hull down generally means going in front of enemies which leads to a series of non penetrations. The gun is the same as the one on the Chrysler GF but performs worse in every way.

 

Having to resort to firing premium when facing almost every equal tier heavy at even medium ranges is just awful...

 

anyone else think it needs a significant buff?

200 mm pen on tier 8 is not cutting it anymore.

Although I suggest 90 mm APCR spam and get over it.

 

But the tank itself is strong, only the gun is lackluster in accuracy and pen department.

One of the best 8 tier heavy, front hull is decent if it's angled correctly. And that requires hills and ridges... Rest is secret. ;)

Yes, well... looking at your stats, maybe some day you will find a good tank.

 

EDIT: And T32 is among the best heavy tanks on tier 8, if you shoot mainly APCR.

Only really bad thing about the T32 is standard pen, maybe accuracy, rest of the tank is pretty awesome, you have one of the best turrets in the game, decent gun handling, -10 gun depression, 400m view range, good hull armour if angled, and huge tracks with 76mm side armour which means it's actually pretty good at sidescraping. 

 

You just sadly have a to carry a lot of APCR (which is also a little lacklustre these days). Give it 220 standard pen and buff the premium ammo to the 260 the inexplicably gave the Chrysler K, maybe a slight accuracy buff and you have an excellent tank.

It is decent, but have been made obsolete due to low pen (requires prem shots alot) and newer premium tanks (Patriot/Chrysler).

I tried recently back-to-back playing Patriot and T32, by using the 90mm with full premium ammo... for science :great:

 

Patriot is better with its 90mm gun, because with 240 alpha T32 is just too sluggish. With 320 alpha, it has much more suitable firepower for such a slow tank.

 

With the 105mm  gun and full APCR... I seriously think T32 is still a pretty damn good tank. Shame about the power creep with high penetration guns and frontal armor, 200mm pen isn't really much these days.

 

If T32 had 230mm pen with the 105mm gun, it would be the best tier 8 tank... but that's just my opinion. If it had Patriot's mobility but with 230mm pen on 105mm gun... LUL

Fun fact, the IS-3 has better gun handling than the T32, because of course it does. 

 

In general I agree with you. The poor fully aimed accuracy and mediocre penetrations are about the only things wrong with the T32. All things considered, it is a pretty decent tank

 also agreed, and i hardly ever fired prem rounds in  mine either. 

That said, I'm also one of those people who played the Tiger II with the historic gun (88mm L/71) with (practically) the same pen.

At first I liked it, but me being me with Tier VIII, I didn't play it for a long time. I finally grinded it after the MM Changes and whatnot, which meant most of my games were facing Tier Xs and there's nothing like platoons of Type 4/5 Heavies snapshotting your hulldown turret as they lumber around that corner, derping you for 300-400 Damage and then casually absorbing your APCR Off their side because it's angled just enough. I was glad to finally sell it. :P

The T32 should be a smaller gunned version of the T29. Or a T34 with a weaker gun. Why would it perform the same as a T34?
