The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

Vehicle characteristics

The T32E1 is very similar to it's brother the T32. In fact the only difference is the change of the upper frontal plate to a single welded slab, instead of the cast found on the regular T32. This provides about 15mm more protection, but more importantly removes the hull machine gun port, which deletes the prominent weak-spot found on the front of the T32. Otherwise the T32 and T32E1 are identical, with the looks of a M26 Pershing with an extremely long 90mm gun.

Tactics

The T32E1 can be played in many ways. It's strong Mantlet and turret armor, combined with the long 90mm gun and US standard 10 degrees of gun depression allow it to snipe at long ranges, but the removal of the hull machine gun port allows you to adopt a more brawling stance, as properly angled your tank can absorb shots from the heaviest guns such as long 88s or the 122mm found on soviet heavies of the tier. The tank is decently maneuverable and pretty quick for a heavy tank, which is due to the tank's medium roots. However, beware the long reload of the 90mm gun, some tanks at your br have almost double your firerate, so it is advisable to stay near allies to avoid being caught during your long reload.
