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 armour 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 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 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 the help of a teammate.

  • 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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template.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.
