Russian media wrote that the old T-62s are even better than the newer T-72s or T-80s – they are easier to operate and maintain.
A T-62M tank of the 2022 model was spotted in one of the directions near the Russian troops. About it report Ukraine Weapons Tracker analysts.
The photograph of Russian soldiers in the war zone showed the upgraded T-62M tank for the first time. The 2022 sample model has several differences from the base model. A new 1PN96MT thermal imaging periscope sight was installed on the tank instead of the old optics. The KDT-2/1 rangefinder was also removed. It is stated that the new sight has a built-in rangefinder.
In addition, they did not install dynamic protection on the tank, which should increase protection.
We add that Army Recognition indicated that the Russian Federation is pretending that the modernization of the T-62M tank is a great idea. And in the West they allegedly underestimate the prospects of Soviet cars. The Russian media claim that the T-62M is even better than the T-72 or T-80. They are easier to use and learn. In addition, older vehicles can reinforce reserve units and subunits for 2-3 lines.
Recall that on November 15, the Armed Forces of Ukraine captured the Russian T-62 tank of 1967.
On September 14, the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the first time captured the T-62 tank – they are used in the Kherson and Donetsk directions.
