It might be a good article if I was able to read what I think is Russian.
Huh... It's ok for the government to have enough weapons to destroy the world many times over, but I can't have 15 rounds in a clip for my AR-15. Go figure.

This Tank has a cult following. Stop by the the T29 Bar and Steakhouse and  see for yourself.

Nuff said.

All this talk of the T29 makes me miss mine. Wish I could get it back just for old times sake.

However caught in the open is just a guaranteed death against anyone who knows what they are doing. Iv lost count of the amount of times on sand river a T29 has charged foward and iv just decimated it in my TD. The hull armour is complete garbage so I wouldn't suggest any new players pick this tank up until you have at least 5-8k games under your belt.

I played the T29, and really didn't like it. For some reason though, I've enjoyed the few games I've had in the T32, even though it is extremely similar to the T29.

The T32 possesses the same gun, but a slightly higher mobility index than the 29, and when elited, good turret AND hull armor. if you like getting into peoples' faces, the T-32 is great for that, but the 29 requires a little more finesse.

@ Wellington WGA

The only issue I have with the T32 is its matched with IX and X tanks.You really can't survive until the last upgrade. The T29  has better matchmaking than the T32. Have you tried playing a stock T32 vs. IX and X? The point I am making is the T32 in most cases gets relegated as a secondary or support tank instead of a front line shock tank . While you are still spraying the burnt smell off  your T32 - playing the T29 is  great fun as in most cases you are at the top of the food chain in most games. In my humble opinion the T32 requires more skill as you are pitted against superior opponents.

the T29 is OP lol when i had mine i felt like god

 

their is no reason a tier 7 TANK, (be aware i said tank and not tank destroyer) should get that good armour and a 105mm which dwarfs every other tier 7 TANK

 

i mean the T29 is still competative at tier 9 which is completly obsurd


 

When all else fails, send in a Raver and no it wont be pretty but yes i will succeed.

The T32 does see IX and sometimes X. The question is how to play it, and that answer depends on how you are tiered. VIII is a tricky tier, because it can go all the way to the top, and all the way to the bottom. In a way, you should consider Tier VIII tanks in a similar manner to V and VI tanks. When you are the top tier, you should be leading your team and pushing, but if you are a VIII at the bottom, you should stick with other people, support them, and use the terrain to your advantage.

 

I've also found the T32 to be very bouncy if you angle the hull back and forth, or "Wiggle" when "Fronting" someone. you may get lucky. :playing:

A fully-elite T29 is a force to be reckoned with, but it can also make you overconfident enough to rush forward and get your hull punched in. The Tiger also shines when it sees Tier IX in a different fashion, with the powerful Long 88 punching holes anywhere it moves.
It's all about working with your team and making the terrain work for you!

Thanks for the tip. unfortunately all weekend long, my T32 saw more IX and X than being top tier.  I will try again on the wiggling thing. My tank isnt very good in dancing the twist. Since we touched on the topic of Matchmaking I had to break out in song:

 

To the tune of Fiddler on the roof  Matchmaker (last verse):

Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Plan me no plans
I'm in no rush
Maybe I've learned
Playing with Tier IX’s
Can get my tank burned
So,.......

Bring me no Spotters
Bring me no Arty
Find me no find
Catch me no catch
Unless she's a matchless Tier V

In my M103, I find that I can punch holes in the hull of a T32 whether he is wiggling or not. Front, back, and side to side. Now, if he is smart enough to go hull down, then I have to get up in his face. Which I don't mind doing. But the turret on a T32 is a veritable fortress.

 

I did love my T32, but I have to agree that the matchmaking for the T29 makes it a more enjoyable tank to drive. The T32 does require more finesse overall. Honestly, I enjoyed driving the T29/32 more than the M103. Just not enough turret armor on it if you ask me. :amazed:

Yikes. I'm only 20K away for the m103 and not enjoying the T32

why do ppl all ways say you should have 5-8k games under you befor playing sum tanks ive played just under 3500 and ive got a good few tanks and i for one found the t29 stock was dredfull but with the 90mm or 105mm in the right hands at least it can be deadly just like all the tanks on this game can be yes sum start of very bad but ones you learn to use them and get upgrade or two on them you can turn them in to scrap makeing machines :)
