Don't believe the hype.  Your going to have a very hard time penn'ing anything with this tank, assuming you can hit.

Most of these jokers have never played a KT or a IS3, if they had they would have less praise for the tank.   The other half played it a year ago and have no idea what they are talking about.

Best advice, keep moving or use blocking cover or get murdered by arty.  Use rolling terrain as much as possible to shield your hull.  Find a bigger badder buddy e.g. any tier 8 or above tank, and stick with them like glue as support.  Your harassing fire will help finish off cripples and keep meds at bay.   When alone, stay on the far flank to keep lower tier tanks from shooting you pieces.

Never face more then one enemy at a time.  Don't get greedy.

AMAZING Mantlet armor, 297mm

I can hit things just fine, pen things just as well too. Bounces do happen, but using the 105mm at tier 8 is far from impossible(Unless going toe to toe with tier 10 heavies, which you shouldn't be doing anyways)

Might have good armor, but its easily penned now a days. Not what it used to be. Bad gun and penned easily...not a great tier 8 anymore. Prefer my KV-4 and KT and even the IS3 over the T32 now. Just not as effective as it once was.

Well I got the T32 yesterday and i'm impressed, first battle I got 3300 xp (doubled) and 4 kills and a buttload of awards.  Was on Provorovkah (standard battle) and I managed to lumber up the hill and go hull down, there was one arty peice and he wasn't shooting at me so I got a type 59, a King Tiger an IS and a French light (I think it was an AMX12) its turret is near invulnerable, this is a gooooood thing considering how squishy the rest of it is.

Yeah, the T32 is by far one of the toughest US heavies.  THe Turret is near invulnerable from every angle and only has that tiny little raised weakpoint on the roof.  THe hull is 127, so a tiny bit of angling can guy you a bounce from time to time.  THe T5E1 seems better on the 32 then it is in the 29, but its nothing to earth shattering. its still an annoying fickle gun.  T32 is a good tank, I liked it in my short time rolling it.   If only WG would give it a higher pen 90mm, maybe 212pen and 8RpM, .37acc, 2.3aim time....itd be an absolute beast.

t32 vs is3+kv4 and between them is "small hill" at 10m distance, so all 3 tanks are hulldowned. Who will win ? I lost because they can shot my commander hatch but their weakspots are harder to hit :/
and mantlet is maybe invincible but gun is damaged too much often.

IS-3 roof is a huge weak spot. KV-4 is monster armor and would give you trouble with no hull down, find another way to deal with him.

The T32 to me seems like a very large medium, althought its a heavy its gun isnt really that good enough to make it go about engaging heavies of equal teir as, although the guns good, its not got the pen to punch through the big boys.  Which in my eyes means that you have to go flanking or at least wait for a distraction before engaging. You'd not engage a IS3 or Tiger II on your own thats for sure unless you're hull down and they aint spotted you.

Very few people end up keeping the T32, which is telling.  It is what it is - you have to work through it to get to the next tier, and it certainly isn't bad... but once I got through it (on my other account) I bought the M103, put a new crew in it, and used my old T29-to-T32 crew to re-man a T29 I bought when it went on sale recently.  The T29 just seemed worth keeping as a tier-7 (to play with platoon mates who have that tier), where-as probably every other tier 7 I have (Panther, Tiger, Tiger P, T25 AT, T25/2, JagdPanther) will probably be sold once I research through them (the T25 AT may stay... it's pretty cool).

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..

How did you get so many battles and are so ignorant? Teir 7 to Teir 8, T32 is a better T29 in every way, heck its a 32 over a 29 thats an improvement right there.
