[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

AnnoCh28_WZ_132A.png

3400000

The WZ-132A is a Chinese tier 9 light tank.

Further development of the WZ-132 project. The main difference was supposed to lie in a shorter vehicle chassis. Engineers wanted to combine high mobility and firepower. A prototype passed trials in the late 1960s, but the project was discontinued. The vehicle never saw mass production; the prototype did not survive to the present day.

The WZ-132A leads to the WZ-132-1.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent Alpha and penetration for a tier 9 light tank.
  • Modest handling.
  • Decent speed and acceleration for a tier 9 light.
  • Enough armor to pull off auto-ricochets
  • Painless grind, stock it's basically a WZ-132 from the last patch


Cons:


  • Poor gun depression compared to others, on par with T-54 ltwt.
  • Terrible accuracy compared to other 9 lights, will miss many shots even when fully aimed.
  • Modest handling meaning that it may take some time after moving to fully aim.
  • Lower DPM than other lights make it difficult to pull off successful one-on-ones.


Performance

The tank performs much like a tier 9 medium with less armor and more speed. It's 2400 DPM can be a challenge as far as getting damage quick is concerned, but overall the alpha damage makes up for this. Play it more passively than it's counterparts as they are all faster than you are, despite your decent hp/T ratio. Take advantage of flanks and reloads to abuse the high alpha and leave opponents wondering why they gave a tier 9 light tank a tier 8 heavy tank's gun.


Early Research

  • Only the radio carries over from the previous tank, mount that now.
  • Upgrading anything else would require the top tracks unless you don't mount any equipment that weighs.
  • After researching & mounting the tracks (or substitute with ETB 3t class equipment), grind straight for the top gun.
  • The top engine is optionally because the engine power only increases from 29.3 to 32.1, which is manageable.
  • Go from there.

Historical Info

After the development of the WZ-132 light tank was finished, a line was drawn and the project proved to be too technical for the Chinese army to produce at the time. As a result, the Chinese army command proceeded to implement the WZ-132 mechanisms in Chinese tanks already in use, the base vehicle chosen being eventually the Type 62 tank. The new modernised variant was named Type 62-I, and was a result of the experience gathered during the Sino-Vietnamese War. Also known under its industrial designation, WZ-131A, it featured 33 different improvements including an external double lens laser range finder mounted above the mantlet of the 85 mm Type 62-85TC rifled main gun for better firing accuracy and a shield for the 12.7 mm Type 54 anti-aircraft heavy machine gun. The in-game model of WZ-132A is an early modernization model of Type 62-I.


Historical Accuracy Errata

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

It should be noted that the tank known as WZ-132A in-game is not a variant of the WZ-132 tank, as it was deemed too technical to produce, but rather an early model of a modernised Type 62 variant known as Type 62-I or WZ-131A.
