Description

GarageImage CR.32 quater.jpg


The CR.32 quater is a Rank I Italian fighter with a battle rating of 1.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica".

The C.R.32 quater fights usually at low to medium altitude, the recommended fight altitude is around 1,000-3,000 meters. Flying above ground level gives you the advantage of diving on your enemies, and you can also dive to avoid incoming fighters.

For a reserve plane, it is one of the best. It does lack armor for the pilot, meaning new players should focus on increasing the pilot's health. Its 2 x 12.7 mm (.50cal) guns are one of the most powerful armament in reserve planes, just behind the Ba.65 (K.14)L.

It has plenty of ammo, 350 rpg, which is enough to kill at least 2 planes. Its armament is also enough to kill a pilot in a single hit, which is similar to the P.26 peashooter. It is however, trading some manoeuvrability for superb diving capability. It can not turn fight Ki-10, I-15 and is comparable to a fury. It can fight pretty much anything it faces, sometimes needing help of a teammate.

Survivability and armour

  • No armour plating
  • No armour glazing
  • Critical components located at front of aircraft (fuel, pilot, engine, controls)
  • More fuel tanks located in wings near fuselage

Armaments

Offensive armament

The CR.32 quater is armed with:

  • 2 x 12.7 mm Breda-SAFAT machine gun, nose-mounted (350 rpg = 700 total)

Usage in the battles

You do not have much choice, you have 2 machine guns and that's it. You can destroy some artillery, AA positions and armored vehicles. You should prioritize other fighters to ground targets, as killing them will give you much more RP.

  • When grinding the CR.32 quater focus on getting the performance modifications. The "Offensive 12.7mm" should be researched immediately, and air target ammo equipped afterwards focus on improving the plane's performance.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 12.7 mm MG's are great to kill pilots, and penetrate enemy armor plates
  • Excellent dive speed
  • Surprisingly good turning against bigger fighters

Cons:

  • Turns less than some biplanes it faces
  • Has a relatively small ammo pool, Firing in short burst is very recommended
  • No protection for the pilot

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.

Media

An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
