Hull roof 25,5 => 38,1

Floor 25,4+12,7 => 25,4

Turret sides 196 + 152,4 => 152,4

450 rounds 0.5 => 1000

 

You mean the armor differences.

That armor increase is intentional to make a better production quality (T32E1 itself) from the T32 "test bed". Especially from front.

 

The hull roof difference is actually 25.4 mm - to - 66.67 mm.

I don't see any writing of 38 mm.

 

There is no difference with the floor armor.

 

Turret side armor is exactly the same from both variants which is 196.85 (on front side) - 152.4 mm (on rear side).

 

"450 rounds 12.7 -> 1000" what?

Вы имеете в виду различия брони.

Это увеличение брони намеренно, чтобы сделать лучшее качество продукции (сам T32E1) от T32 «испытательным полигоном». Особенно спереди.

 

Разница крыша корпуса фактически 25,4 мм - до - 66,67 мм.

Я не вижу никакого писания 38 мм .

 

Там нет никакой разницы с полом броней.

 

Турель стороны брони точно так же, как из вариантов, который составляет 196,85 (на лицевой стороне) - 152,4 мм (на задней стороне).

 

"450 патронов 12,7 -> 1000" что?

Compared with the game

That is in-game T32 armor parameter...

 

As you can see its thickness is already wrong in the first place compared to its actual armor specification (even if it has to be a nerf. Historically-purposed nerf).

But, yeah. The T32 is one of the earliest U.S. tank designed in War Thunder.

 

So I wouldn't be surprised if it's off the chart due to Devs didn't know about most U.S. tank development in detail at that time... or until today...

 

Especially with armor issue.

What happened to the turret. Is it historical ?

 

it's not. it's been bug reported in english and russian forums. the 203mm IS indeed the mantlet itself, but there's another plate behind it. at least i think that's how it goes.

one thing i learned in this game is that space armor and pre-detonation are terrible. 

 

I rather have the front be modeled as 300 instead of the 200 infront and 100 in the back. Only because(in game) once the shell have enough penetration for the first one, nothing will stop the shrapnel untill it goes to the end of the tank. I can't tell you how many times I've died to APHE when it hits only the sheetmetal track cover on my pattons or m103. It's really stupid, once the shrapnel is activated in game then nothing stops it.

oh i absolutely agree. someday, when we're rolling around in tanks from Halo and CASing with our Y-wings while fending of Cylon raiders, the inevitable APHE rework will happen.

 

side note: isn't spaced armor what supposedly made the super pershing... well, super?

Maybe, maybe not. It's more likely the mantlet itself was 298mm thick.

Don't hold your breath. Instead of modeling the T32E1, they remodeled the T32, and did it wrong.

It would've been super if it was RHA instead of broiler plates. then again, it should still act better than it does in game.

 I am just surprise that they wasted their time and resources when 90% of the t32 players want the T32E1 and delete thr T32.

I'm sure all of the T32 players would love the T50E1, with its 235mm of penetration, but nope. Gaijin hasn't bothered with it.

 

Not only did they screw up the remodel of the turret, but they added those weird bulges to the lower plate that can still be easily penned. It completely negates the slope of the lower plate.
