The T-62 is a tier 3 Main Battle Tank originating from the Soviet Union, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked from the T-55, and leads to the T-72 Ural, T-64A mod. 1969, and FV4201 Chieftain Mk. 2.

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
  • Smoke Generators : generated a smoke screen around the vehicle

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

With excellent turret armor, the T-62 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 its strong turret armor is negated by poor hull armor as it crests a ridge to fire. With a sluggish acceleration and top speed, it cannot easily charge between positions without leaving itself exposed, so caution should be taken any time it crosses open ground.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • High alpha
  • Good HEAT shell
  • Decent turret armor

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Poor mobility
  • Weak hull armor
  • Poor hull and turret traverse

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

The Improved Fire Control System allows for a much quicker aim time, and the various ammunition upgrades give more firepower and penetration to the main gun, so these should be researched early. The engine upgrades only marginally improve the mobility of the vehicle, so should not take priority when upgrading.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Improved Filter Systems
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos for view range when far from allies, accuracy on the move, top speed and reload speed when close to an enemy.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

One of the first of the main battle tanks, the T-62's armor offers excellent frontal turret protection, but relies heavily on sloping to protect its relatively thinly armored frontal hull.

History[edit | edit source]

Originally designed as an upgrade to the T-54/55 series of tanks, the T-62 was produced from 1961 until the 1980’s, with over 20,000 produced by a variety of nations. In service well over fifty years after its initial design, over a dozen smaller nations and forces currently field large fleets of the still capable workhorse of the Soviet Army.

Variants[edit | edit source]
