The T-64A mod. 1969 is a tier 4 Main Battle Tank originating from the Soviet Union, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the T-62, and leads to the T-64A mod. 1976 and T-80.

Features[]

  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage
  • Smoke Generators : generated a smoke screen around the vehicle

Player Recommendations[]

Featuring some of the best frontal turret armor within its tier, the T-64A mod. 1969 excels at firing from a hull down position. This comes with a caveat though: its poor gun depression does not allow for ridge poking, so it must rely on locations which do not need a player to expose their hull armor. With a much more powerful engine and transmission, the T-64A mod. 1969 has much higher mobility and can be an effective brawler if used correctly.

Pros and Cons[]

Pros[]

  • High alpha
  • Excellent turret armor
  • Good Mobility

Cons[]

  • Poor hull armor
  • Poor turret traverse
  • Mediocre gun depression

Upgrade Suggestions[]

The 5DTFM Diesel Engine should be researched early, as it improves the vehicle’s mobility, making crossing open areas faster and pushing against a retreating enemy easier. The 2E28M2 Gun Stabilizer allows for much more accurate fire while on the move, and the Improved Autoloader will enhance the fire rate of the T-64A. Ammunition upgrades are also very important, as they will allow for more accurate and damaging fire against the enemy.

Retrofit Suggestions[]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist

History[]

Class: Medium Tank
Developed: 1962-1967
Service: 1969+
Vehicles Built: cca 2000-2500
Operators: Soviet Union, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan

The T-64A Medium Tank is a modernization of the older T-64, which was, at the point of its introduction, the most advanced tank in the world, sacrificing crew comfort for its thick, composite frontal armor and low silhouette. However, it was also unreliable, difficult to maintain and very, very expensive, which was not a good thing for the Soviet Union that was chronically short of funding. A.A.Morozov was the lead designer of the vehicle and vision for the vehicle was to build simply the best tank, period – and his team did that, but, in the process, they left very little space for additional improvement.

This trait was often criticized but its introduction into service was considered necessary to counter the western 105mm rifled gun-armed tanks. These would be the Pattons and the Chieftains, which the Soviets happened to seriously overestimate. In order to fight this perceived threat, they developed a larger 125mm smoothbore gun to replace the older 115mm the T-64 had carried. This would be the D-81 cannon, beginning a series of guns that lasts to this day. The T-64 was modified to carry this new gun, resulting in a prototype called Object 434. In 1967, a limited production run was approved and the vehicle and, finally, it entered production in 1968 under the name of T-64A. This initial variant became known as Model 1969.

The tank first appeared in public around 1970 but was virtually unknown in the west as it was often mistaken for a far more common T-72 modification due to their generally similar appearance. This misconception was quite common as late as the early 2000s. The T-64A was never exported and was rarely used – it seems that only a few vehicles were deployed to Afghanistan. Even though a relatively large number of these vehicles were deployed in East Germany as well as in other countries of the Warsaw Pact, it hasn’t really fired a shot in anger during the Soviet era. After the breakup of the Soviet Union, many T-64s were left in Ukraine and form the mainstay of the Ukrainian armored forces to this day, even though many of them were modernized.
