    1973 received the German Reichsbahn (DR) from the Soviet manufacturer locomotive factory Voroshilovgrad the first copy of equipped with train heating and dynamic brake Series 132. The installation of the generator for the train heating conditionally compared to the only suitable for freight service class 130 and 131 an extension of the locomotive body 20,820 mm. Since the components with the exception of the train heater had already proven in many 100 copies, the new locomotive proved immediately reliable. The 132 carries as a diesel-electric locomotive the medium-speed 16-cylinder four-stroke diesel engine 16 Tsch N 26/26 (type 5 D 49), which drives the generator, which in turn supplies the six Tatzlagermotoren with power. With an output of 3000 hp, the 132 were initially the strongest DR diesel locomotives. Since in the GDR a maximum speed of 120 km / h was valid, which the railwaymen simply called "Russian" or "Großrusse" 132 could be used before all train types. Until the end of the 1990s and on many routes until well into the new millennium dominated the Untertertourige babbling at idle and the bright whistling under full load, the noise in stations and on the embankment. To dampen the distinctive noise, the DB equipped many locomotives with new fan grilles in the pitched roofs and elevated shafts of the triple fan. Because the DB already had a short time after reunification big plans with the Russian six-axle. As the oldest examples of the West German V160 family made their forty years of service and many locomotives became increasingly vulnerable to heavy traffic in the steel industry in the Ruhr area, the DB already relocated the first 132 to Oberhausen in 1992. After initial skepticism about the unfamiliar diesel-electric technology, the train drivers in the west made friends quickly with the locomotives. On top of that, many former DR train drivers followed their locomotives to the west. Since 1994, the series as BR 232 out, the 140 km / h fast Umbauloks are classified at DB AG as BR 234.
