The '''{{Specs|name}}''' is a rank {{Specs|rank}} Italian fighter {{Battle-rating}}. It was introduced in [[Update 1.69 "Regia Aeronautica"]].
 +
 
 +
The C.R.32 quater fights are 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 armour for the pilot, meaning new players should focus on increasing the pilot's vitality. Its 2 x 12.7 mm (.50 cal) guns are one of the most powerful armaments 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 (Family)|P-26 ''Peashooter'']]. It does, however, trade some manoeuvrability for superb diving capability. It can not turn fight [[Ki-10 (Family)|Ki-10's]], [[I-15 (Family)|I-15's]] and is comparable to a [[Fury Mk II]]. It can fight pretty much anything it faces, but sometimes needs the help of a teammate.

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 are 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 armour for the pilot, meaning new players should focus on increasing the pilot's vitality. Its 2 x 12.7 mm (.50 cal) guns are one of the most powerful armaments 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 does, however, trade some manoeuvrability for superb diving capability. It can not turn fight Ki-10's, I-15's and is comparable to a Fury Mk II. It can fight pretty much anything it faces, but sometimes needs the help of a teammate.

General info

Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Breda-SAFAT (12.7 mm)

The CR.32 quater is armed with:

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

Usage in battles

You do not have much choice, you have 2 machine guns and that's it. You can destroy some artillery, AA positions and armoured vehicles. You should prioritize other fighters to ground targets, as destroying player targets 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 to focus on improving the plane's performance.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • 12.7 mm MG's are great for killing pilots and penetrating enemy armour plates
  • Excellent dive speed
  • Surprisingly good turning against bigger fighters

Cons:

  • Turns worse than some biplanes it faces
  • Has a relatively small ammo pool, firing in short bursts 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 long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-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 />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).

Media

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

See also

Links to the articles on the War Thunder Wiki that you think will be useful for the reader, for example:

  • reference to the series of the aircraft;
  • links to approximate analogues of other nations and research trees.

External links

Paste links to sources and external resources, such as:

  • topic on the official game forum;
  • encyclopedia page on the aircraft;
  • other literature.
