The ICA IS-32 was a two-seat sailplane produced in Romania in the 1970s. A refinement of the IS-28B, it shared most of that aircraft's fuselage, mated to new wings and empennage. This new wing had a span of 20 metres, featuring interconnected ailerons and flaps, Schempp-Hirth-type airbrakes, and water ballast tanks. The monowheel undercarriage differed from the IS-28 in being fully retractable.
