Nice video. About to grab the T32 again myself. Always felt like a weird tank to me, certainly strong but going from the t29 which has one of the best penetration abilities for it's tier to the t32 with the same gun, now having one of the lowest certainly took some adjustment last time I tried it on a different server.

Always fun to hold a flank by yourself for 2-3 minutes taking no damage though  :Smile_glasses:

"IS-3 can be easily damage on the side" i think you forgot something about magic space armor

I like the new terms you made up "World of Pain" for not preferred mm, or The "Banana Alley" on Himmelsdwarf

Great Video Guys

If the gun had either like 20mm more pen or .03m more accuracy, it would be a fine tank. It just feels worse tier for tier compared to the T29, since the T32 is literally just a slight upgrade in mobility and frontal hull armor. And don't forget you get to take on the magical tier 10s with it while the T29 tops out at tier 9.

T32 is good as dead when fighting up-close. If tanks such as Tiger II that cannot lower it's gun enough to damage the front hull of T32, then it can easily aim for it's giant hatch.

Love the hate at that part with the Tiger 2 huge commander hatch, when actually T32 one is alot bigger.

T32 is best played from a distance and from hulldown positions.

Well, that was refreshing and helpful. Now I think I know how to play the T32 more effectively on the battlefield now. Still, the lack of penetration sort of turns me down but after mentioning the tank as the "most" versatile tank I might need to rethink how I play the T32.

I liked the T32 more than the T29 but honestly that gun was frustrating.  Also they make the IS-3 seem a lot weaker than it really is...  I managed to bounce off the lower hull with gold rounds in the SU-122-44 repeatedly the other day...

If you think the gun is bad on a Tier 8 save 25k free xp for the m103 which has to use it as a stock weapon, however you can upgrade to the lesser 120mm(24.5k xp if i recall) on m103 without the tracks or turret upgrade

I always get up close with my T32. I agree with that part of the video. The hatch isnt THAT big. And also, you can block hatch and hull shots with your gun for a 0 dmg crit. Makes them rage and all HAX.


Also, I seriously consider that a T32 with 210 pen or more would be seriously OP.

Spot on the analysis. However, in tank companies, Company Commanders seldom want it. Maybe if they see this they will learn how to use the tank. But, why take such a complicated tank when an IS3 is very good and they know it well already?  No reason to complicate your plans by taking the "special child".  Honestly, it takes so much knowledge to properly deploy.  You HAVE to know where the weak spots on enemy tanks are.  And it doesn't help that it has the least accurate, least penetrating gun.  You have to know where you can safely shoot from on each map.
