History[]

Class: Medium Tank
Developed: 1983-1985
Service: 1985+
Vehicles Built: cca 1000-2000
Operators: Soviet Union, Russia, Syria, Afghanistan

The T-62 Medium Tank was born from the need to upgrade or replace the aging T-54/55 series in order for Soviet tanks to be able to defeat their new western counterparts in battle. This tank's 115mm smoothbore gun was a notable upgrade over the earlier rifled D-10T. Originally, the T-62 was supposed to be a stopgap measure before the appearance of the newer T-64 tank from Kharkov, but in the end it was produced in the Soviet Union until 1975 with more than 20 thousand made and it formed the backbone of the Soviet forces for many years.

But by the 1970s and 1980s, the vehicle was already showing its age and in the early 1980s, it was decided that a modernization was needed to significantly improve the combat value of the thousands of the T-62 tanks still in Russian service. Its result became known as the T-62M. The most visible change was the armor upgrade in the form of a new set of appliqué armor, which consisted of a 3cm steel plate and 8cm of space, filled with 4 angled layered 5mm steel plates and layers of polyurethane. Its goal was to significantly improve the tank’s protection against guided missiles and HEAT shells in general.

The firepower was improved by the introduction of two major improvements, the 9K116-2 Sheksna gun-launched ATGM system (similar to the 100mm Bastion version) and the Volna Fire Control System. The engine was replaced by a more powerful 620hp V-55U one and a number of other improvements were made as well. The exact number of vehicles modified is not known – one plant alone modified around 400 T-62s to this standard, but the number produced in total is likely in low thousands. The T-62Ms weren’t that widely exported either. Many appeared in Afghanistan during the Soviet-Afghan war and were supplied to the local governments. Later, they appeared during the conflicts in Chechnya and, most recently, a number of these tanks were sold to Syria where they were used quite successfully against the anti-government forces.
