The T32 heavy tank is well known to any seasoned player as a tank with insane turret/mantlet armor since the T32 excels at hiding most of the tank and simply exposing it’s impenetrable gun/mantlet. Most overlook that the T32’s hull is actually quite good and can be relied upon in most situations. It is recommended to avoid aiming for the T32’s turret unless you have a good shot at the commander’s hatch.
The index at the bottom of each picture describes a few abbreviations used and also the format in which the armor details are described in. Effective Armor (EA) refers to the overall effectiveness of the armor without normalization.
Frontally the T32 might not have the best protection of the tier 8 heavy group but the armor still gives it a decent amount of protection.
Angling a T32 is a double-edged sword since it helps make the frontal hull armor much stronger but at the same time opens up the 76mm sides if you over angle. Generally it is best to not angle over 20° since anymore and the sides drop below the auto-bounce angle.
The T32 is very vulnerable from this sides besides the turret armor. Simply aim at the hull and you are good to go.
