General info

The 32pdr OQF gun features excellent ballistics and penetration with a good reload and decent spalling. In British fashion, the gun trades post-penetration damage for high penetration capabilities. It fires high velocity full-calibre solid shot rounds and features a weighed muzzle brake that is easy for the enemy to shoot, disabling your cannon.

Available ammunition

The 32pdr cannon features 2 shells. The first round is Shot Mk.1 which is a full-bore solid-shot APCBC round with more than 250 mm of penetration. The Shot mk.1 features good spalling after penetrating enemy armour. The second round for the 32pdr cannon is Shell Mk.1, a full-bore high-explosive round. The shell carries 920 grams of TNT and is capable of overpressurizing thin armour and exposed crew.

Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of the weapon in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the weapon and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Weapon-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />.


Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
