Features[edit | edit source]

- Designated target: vehicle has the ability to designate targets that are within line of sight and vision range. Designated targets are called out and takes increased damage.
- Smoke generators: generate a smoke screen around the vehicle.
Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]
This tank is best played as a mobile scout, as it lacks the armor for up close brawling. Within its tier it is a formidable challenge to the M41 and PT-85 but cannot fight frontally with vehicles of even a tier higher. If this happens, the Type 62 should be played as a scout or flanker, maneuvering around more heavily armored vehicles with mobility.

History[edit | edit source]
The Type 62 is a Chinese light tank developed in 1963 from the Type 59 medium tank. It was designed mainly for use in rugged terrain where heavier vehicles would lose their effectiveness. Around 1,200 tanks were produced between 1963 and 1989. The Type 59 was exported to several countries, and many of these vehicles are still in service.
