General info

Flight performance

Describe how the aircraft behaves in the air. Speed, manoeuvrability, acceleration and allowable loads - these are the most important characteristics of the vehicle.

Survivability and armour

  • 5 mm steel plate - cockpit floor and spacer plate between frontal armour.
  • 10 mm steel plate - behind the pilot and GIB's seats
  • 15 mm steel plate - armour plates in front of the cockpit section
  • 50 mm bulletproof glass - armoured canopy windscreen

The aircraft provides good pilot protection with steel plates and bulletproof glass.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Main article: Akan m/55 (30 mm)

The J32B is armed with:

  • 4 x 30 mm Akan m/55 autocannons (90 RPG - 360 rounds total)

Suspended armament

Main articles: m/57B, Rb24

The J32B can be outfitted with the following ordnance:

  • Without load
  • 38 x m/57B unguided rockets
  • 4 x Rb24 air-to-air missiles
  • 38 x m/57B unguided rockets + 2 x Rb24 air-to-air missiles

Usage in battles

This aircraft excels at being fast, it is important to use that advantage to quickly Boom & Zoom any unsuspecting enemies. Avoid utilising turning manoeuvres with other aircraft as every aircraft with the exception of the F-100D will shake you rather easily and you risk being pulled into a "reversal". Although you can easily out-run most jets, some aircraft like the Etendard IVM, MiG-17AS and Shenyang F-5 will easily catch up. These aircraft prove deadly to the J32B as they will keep up with your turns if you try to evade them, not to mention they also carry air-to-air missiles which they will certainly use to force you to bleed speed (if you don't get destroyed in the process). Your safest bet is to go in a straight line hugging the maximum safe speed (concern for realistic and simulator battles) and hope they pull away.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Excellent top speed. Will out-run almost every other jet at its BR range
  • 4x 30mm Akan M/55 that inflict devastating damage
  • 4x Rb-24 air-to-air missiles, same performance as AIM-9Bs
  • Powerful afterburning engine, providing excellent acceleration
  • Integrated radar
  • Slightly above average roll-rate
  • Resistant to high-G manoeuvres (up to 10Gs)
  • Decent pilot protection and airframe endurance
  • Great energy retention
  • Fowler flap design provides excellent lift at low speeds

Cons:

  • Very poor turn-rate at high speeds.
  • Mediocre manoeuvrability, almost every opponent it faces can out-manoeuvre it
  • Very low extended gear rip speed (ensure gear is raised right after take-off and lowered at a safe speed)
  • Sluggish at slow speeds
  • Very inefficient and small air-brake design, requires high angle-of-attack or aggressive banking to bleed excess speed quickly
  • Relatively large target
  • High rate of fire means the ammunition will deplete very quickly, trigger control required
  • High fuel consumption rate

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>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. 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.
