What is the difference between T29 and T32..?
I have T29 and hope to get T32 soon, but when
I look at their stats, it seems that T32 has a little
more front armor..
but it cost 100k exp and 2.61 mil credits..
there must be something else..

T32 have superior armor layout to T29. It is like overweight Pershing. All you need is to research tracks and you can enjoy top cannon from the start, it makes grind on T32 easiest of all Tier 8's. It is very small for heavy tank and have outstanding protection with fine cannon. It is one of "support" heavy tanks.

T32 leads to the M103 and T110 - about one of the only benefits.

T29 turret can be penentrated around the manlet but T32, meh...

pre-upgraded turret: 16 battles, 19 kills. Overall stat's: 33 battles, 65 kills. That is, if you do the math, 46 kills in only 17 games. Get it in a hull down place that's hard to flank and you can hold off hordes for a long long time. It plays like the t29, it just a little bit better at everything the t29 is good at

I love my T32.  It's like the T29 But better.  I also feel you get better love from MM with it.  Its a Tier 8, that already says your chances of getting into the upper part of the Ranks is much better.

I may end up getting my T29 back though.  I kinda miss it.

The front hull armor on the T32 is surprisingly bouncy. And of course the turret is arguably the best in the game.

Main weakness is low penetration on the gun. Might want to carry a few gold shells on your tank in case you encounter a Maus up close or something.

But other than that it's great.

My T29 has more matches played than any of my other tanks.

How well does the stock turret hold up?  I'm assuming the mantle is actually reasonably strong and not just 114mm over the front and actually somewhat thicker.

I'm about to trade in the T29 soon and don't have enough free XP for both tracks and turret.

It's pretty limited without the turret. Purely support really. You can't hull down, face hug, or bounce pretty much anything unless it hits the mantle. Once you get it though you can go hull down and face huge face more effectively, which can be done on most maps. I hate Himmelsdorf as it's all flat but besides that there's a few hull down spots on every map. Great tank.

Great tank.  Hard as hell to get the xp to get the upgraded turret, though.  Save all the free xp you can for the turret.  The stock turret is so bad you will want to quit the game.

After the turret, the t32 is everything the t29 is, but better.  However, it still has only the 105, so you will have trouble taking on other tier 8s like the IS-3 frontally.  Everything you can do now in the t29, you can do better in the t32... but if you cannot do it at all, the new tier doesn't add anything new.

The t32 can brawl.  It's not the best, but with a little angling, you can bounce shots off the hull.  People will yell hack a good bit, since they all know the great truth that hitting an American Hull is an instant killshot.

And very, very simply... there is no tank of its tier more deadly fighting up or down a hill than the t32, save maybe the t34.

The t32 isn't the iwin button that the is3 is but it's easily my favorite t8 tank. If you can play it right it can dominate most t8 matches. It's only downfall is the gun pen which will fail you against t10s frontally. With it's speed manuvrability and rof tho if you flank said t10s they are in real trouble.

I loved my T32 and to this day it's my most run tank in the game. People above me already have highlighted all the best strengths of the T32.
The one that I'll mention extra is the face hug tactic. It's extremely effective against German tank, less effective against Russian, and really useful against other US ones since they have the gun depression to get at your weak haul armor.

I was facing hugging an E100 once and because he just kept bouncing off my turret without doing damage he quit the the match. This was before the patch where leaving made your tank stay and you got nothing, so his tank just exploded when he left.

Hmmm sounds as a good tier 8. I had the IS-3 and have the tiger II. The IS-3 was great but the tiger II is pretty shit in my opinion. Long 105 bounces a LOT (bounced an S-51 his front amor... Then he one-shotted me). Im very excited to get this tank, i hear so many good things about it. Seems to be much better then my KT
