Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy Armor : this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • High Caliber : the high-caliber weaponry deals an increased damage
  • Fast EXP : this vehicle earns extra EXP
  • Increased Damage Per Shot : this vehicle deals higher damage than other vehicle of this tier
  • Early ERA : one of the earliest vehicles that can equipped with ERA
  • Smoke Generators : generated a smoke screen around the vehicle

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

- This is an excellent hull down tank. The hull armour is nowhere near as strong as the turret, which makes hiding it vital. Further, the lower front is never protected by ERA, and weaker than the front. It should be used at medium range in a covered position to snipe targets, as it has an excellent gun and tough armour, but poor reload speed.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • - Armour: The Tiran 6 can survive heavy damage from vehicles at its tier. Sabot ammunition cannot penetrate the turret outright in most cases.
  • - ERA: The Tiran 6 can take ERA, which improves its protection against HEAT rounds greatly, and makes the upper front much tougher against sabot shells.
  • - Gun: All ammunition choices are quite excellent, although the HEAT rounds are likely the best due to their improved likelihood of penetrating a target, and general all around usability.

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • - Reload: The weapon loads at an agonizing nine seconds. Plenty of time to get perforated by autocannons or get your top popped by an ATGM.

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

- Taking the ERA immediately will greatly improve your survivability. It increases the resistance of the turret and hull to a hilarious degree, forcing opponents to take more time lining up a shot, and making poorly aimed hits much less threatening.

History[edit | edit source]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1973
Service: 1973-1982
Vehicles Built: cca 50
Operators: Israel

The Tiran 6 Main Battle Tank is a captured Egyptian or Syrian T-62 in Israeli service with a few Israeli modifications. The name "Tiran" has several possible origins according to Israeli sources. For one, it means "dictator" (tyrant) in Hebrew and the tanks were USSR-made, allegedly a reference to Iosif Stalin. The second theory mentions the blockade of the Straits of Tiran was one of Egypt's first acts of war prior to the Six-Day War and, last but not least, the first letter of both the original tank designation and the word Tiran is T.

After the devastating losses of the Six-Day War, Syria and Egypt decided to arm themselves with the best the Soviets had to offer, the T-62 MBT. Between 1971 and 1973, around 700 tanks of this type were sold to the Middle East. Many of these were captured in the aftermath of the 1973 Yom Kippur war. By that time, the T-62 was recognized as a powerful and deadly opponent and the Israelis were never the ones to squander good captured vehicles. And so the captured or salvaged T-62s entered Israeli service under the designation of Tiran 6.

Unlike the captured T-54 and T-55 tanks, the T-62s were not extensively modified. Contrary to some sources, the vehicles did not have their engines replaced by Detroit Diesel ones, nor did they receive any advanced equipment such as thermal imagers. The Fire Control System was not upgraded either.

Having to rely on captured stocks, the tank was never really a first line vehicle. Israel kept an unknown (but relatively low) number in service with reserve units for roughly a decade. It seems some of them might have seen some combat during the 1982 Operation Peace for Galilee because a few were upgraded with the Blazer ERA kit. They were phased out of active service shortly after the operation and most were scrapped.
