So the T-62a is the T10 tank of the soviets, wich comes after the T-54.

So what is the T-62a?

No it is not the T-62, the 115mm MBT that supplanted the T-54a/55

The T-62a comes from the Obyect 140 and 165 programs. These where programs to modernize the T54 and T-55's in service(and to built new ones aswel).

First the obyect 140 program designed by Leonid N. Kartsev
The hull armour remained the same at 102mm, but was slightly better sloped. The new gun was the 100mm D-54TS gun. This gun was better and more accurate then the 100mm D-10T. A new suspension was designed with 6 roadwheels made of lightweight aluminium

The biggest change was the turret wich had a whopping increase of 240mm frontal mantlet armour, 185mm frontal turret armour and also better side armour. The tank weighted 37 tonnes.

However the project was abandoned due to expensive serial production estimates.

Kartsev did not stopped there and decided to modernize his Object 140
wich resulted in the Obyect 165

The turret recieved a new cartidge case ejector and mounted the turret on a stretched T-55 hull with a brand new suspension. The tanks weight was much better distrubeted, Rate of fire increased and many other changes to the suspension


However Kartsev was also working on obyect 166. with the primary compoment the 115mm 2A20 gun. THIS obyect 166 became eventually the T-62 Main battle tank

OUR T-62a was the obyect 165 wich was produced in small numbers.


So statistics=

242 mm gun mantlet


185mm turret front


153 mm turret sides


97 mm turret rear


40 mm turret roof


102 mm at 60° hull front


79 mm hull upper sides


15 mm hull lower sides


46 mm at 0° hull rear


20 mm hull bottom


31 mm hull roof

I was hoping that if the T-62 was to be released as a tier 10 med it was going to have the 115mm gun. For some reason the WG staff decided that smoothbore weapons would vastly outclass the rifled guns in WOT because theyre smoothbore. IRL the 115mm gun had pretty average penetration compared to rifled 105mm guns of its time not comparable with the smoothbore monsters in later tanks. Its rounds didnt have more than 300mm pen max and many guns in WOT have similar pen of the 115mm gun. I have the feeling that without the T-62 having its historical production gun it will be very weak not any better than the T-54 with the D-54.  The T-62's armor and speed  havent improved,and the gun wont improve by much unless the devs give it some fictional pen boost(which I highly hope wont be happening). The gun itself has pretty bad accuracy and its only advantage is that it has penetration. At least by equiping the T-62 with its unique 115mm gun it will make a mediocre tank with a powerful gun thus making it balanced

I think you're talking about T-62, The T-62A was a predcessor of T-62 which of only a few numbers were produced, It also had the 100mm D-54TC gun. But I do wish we had a choice of more than 100mm gun.

The only info I could find about production was "small numbers" or "small series". Would anyone know (at least approximately) how many were produced?

Also, I hope that tumor on the turret isn't as easily penetrated as I think it'll be.

All for the worse, the real T-62 is needed, not some prototype that is nothing more than a T9 medium alternative

Hull armor will be crap like now. Gun dep. will be crap like now. Better turret armor (cant use it mostly due said shit gun dep), better mobility (yay), better dpm, and you can sponge up one more hit due to bigger health pool.

Sounds like an up tiered T-54 to me. With basically the same drawbacks it has in it's tier now. Unless it magically becomes accurate on the move, wich I doubt.

Dev trolling again.... with the epic fail of introduce of IS-4, KV-4, and IS-8, T-62A surely another epic fail

The turret armour is increased alot. The hull of the T-62a is based on the later production T-54a/T55 hull. These had 99mm hull armour, not 120mm

It only makes perfect sense that the new tier 10s are a natural progression of tier 9s. So they are basiclly "more of" what the T-54 allready was. It would be idiotic to introduce vehicles which destroy the current medium roles.
T-54 agressive "in your face" brawler
E-50 sniper
Patton "hills are my armor" guerilla fighter
Batchat - fast deadly back-stabber

What did you expect a UFo with no drawbacks?

No I expected that we get something that could semi bounce shots on its front from heavies that are two tiers lower. T8 heavies (except the T32) will only have trouble penetrating you from the front when you can angle your front with a terrain object on your side.

And no the T54 ain't no brawler anymore. The USS Enterprise energy shield days are long gone... With all the nerfs it is probably the least used T9 med today.

Well, I got news for you... If you want to bounce stuff, go play heavy tanks. Mediums are about positioning, DPM, exploiting gaps in enemy lines.

The T-54 still is still the best brawler only the ammount of brain usage required to do so is increased.

Hmm, not really impressed by the armor specs. Sides/rear will still let HE through...now even front might let arty HE in(100 under no angle from arty shell...yay!). Front of turret will still get penned, even more so now.(tumor) Not like any T9/10 which will you encounter all the time has less than 250 pen nowadays :/ And same model means same stupid ammo rack hits from the front:/

Hope it improves in mobility/gun department. Else its just not worth it to go one mm tier up.

EDIT: ist it the other way around, shouldnt this be T9 nad T-54 T10? because that tank is just paper
