The T-62 has been in the pipeline for War Thunder for a long time, since the tank’s chassis served as a base for several other very interesting vehicles from the Cold War era. One of them, the IT-1 missile vehicle, we presented in a previous update, War Thunder 1.59: Flaming Arrows. Now it’s time for the T-62 itself to burst onto the battlefield in War Thunder.
The T-62 will take a top-tier position in War Thunder in the Soviet medium tank tech tree, immediately after the T-54 tanks. The T-62 has identical armour to the T-54 and comparable mobility, but a more powerful cannon, with two types of armour-piercing fin-stabilized discarding-sabot shells (APFSDS), high-explosive shells, and of course, hollow-charge non-rotating shells with the ability to pierce armour up to 440 mm in thickness. The high caliber of the cannon has its cost in the form of increased reload time, amounting to a 12 seconds for an experienced crew.
The T-62’s chief opponent in the game will be the top-tier tanks of the US and Great Britain, primarily the M60, M60A1 and the Chieftain Mk III, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages in comparison to the T-62. As for which tank is to become the most effective in high-ranked battles, that’s up to the players – to the front, tankers! See you in War Thunder update 1.61 "Road to Glory"!
