All i know that it is from 1963 and has been on battle training in eastern finland..  and if i remember right its heavy tank, top speed of 45km/h..

I know the answear now, managed to remember and checked it.. lets find out how many of u know this.. :D

Edit:
It isnt heavy but medium tank.. :D wont tell u anything else or this will go too easy.. :D

It looks like a t-62 command vehicle to me.

nope.. its not t-62

i can say that prism thing between those hatches is battletraining laser detector so it doesnt "belong there", it has been added for those training purposes...

That Ps 262-63 is just a "registeration plate" of some sort for finnish armed forces.. that 63 comes from its buying and build year.. its been built and registered to finnish army in 1963.. :D

Bugger all, What tank does Finlad produce. Can't find a damn thing. AFAIK Finland no longer buys Russian Tanks, so It must be European and Rather said German or Sweedish tank  :unsure:

as i see no more replys ill just spoil this.. its a T-55M that has been modernized by finnish army at 1990.. dunno exactly what modernizations they did, and dunno if still in use as a training tank.. atleast i was trained as a shooter and a loader of a tank with it in 2010.. so rumours that they were retired from training usage in 2002 isnt true, that one was still in training usage in 2010.. dunno if it is still in use or not..


Edit..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-54/55
http://en.wikipedia....rs_and_variants on that side youll find some info where it was used, where it was used and what modifications was used.. T-55M was the one on those pics.. :D

Looks like a T-55 to me. Same flaps, tracks, headlight on turret and gun as you see on the golden-eye T-55.
