A wild T62M appeared in a new WG video about multi-threading. Some nice armor, maybe more alpha than the standard 320 but this sexy beast has a special place in my heart! :)

 

 

The tank appears in the carousel at 6:47...

Would be very welcome, since there aren't many (strong) Russian tier x medium tanks in the game.

The T-62M is an upgraded version of the standard Russian-made main battle tank T-62. The T-62M main battle tank was adopted in service by the Russian armed forces in 1983. The T-62M is fitted with the Sheksna (US designation AT-12 Swinger) laser beam-riding missile system, passive armour protection, a V-55U engine and the R-173 communications system.

 

Sounds like something which would fit AW more than WoT.

 

The whole reason we got the T-62A is that the production T-62 was too modern.

 

This is something we don't need in the game.

While the tank itself looks really awesome (I like a lot soviet tank design), it is far too modern for the game. It mount a smoothbore, so can't be fitted in the game, and it has some advanced features as pointed out by Homer_J.

Nah it's to replace the Obj.430U.

That thing is such a  disappointment, Rasha needs more  alpha, armor and cammo than that.

I mean it even manages to loose some matches!!

It doesn't have to fire AT missiles from that gun. Also the progetto 65 is a later design you know! ;)

T-62M already exists in AW as a Tier 4 premium (vanilla T-62 is Tier 3). And yes I too agree that the tank is too modern, reminder that some nations field stuff from the 40s as their Tier 10 (e.g. Maus).

Are you sure? Progetto 65 was a proposal to compete with Leopard1 (at least this is what WG said). BTW the problem is related to the maingun more than the age of production.

WG said multiple time they won't introduce tanks with smoothbore and reactive armours and T-62 monted a 115mm smoothbore gun! This is why we have the T-62A in game, because it mounted a rifled main gun.

Instead of introducing new and stronger tanks (power creep), WG should just balance the already existing tanks.  

(Buff weak tanks, nerf op tanks)

Leopard 1 entered service in 1965 while the Italians started dabbling with their own design in 1969. Like historical accuracy matters at this point, would you prefer this very historical piece of wood? :)

The K-91 with 1700 m/s and 276mm penetration have the gun performance of the T-62 115mm smoothbore gun, with the early ammunition type. The developers aren´t in charge of WoT evolution anymore, hence the power creep.

Year of production was never relevant.

 

And it's just not needed.  If one of the other tier X mediums needs buffing (and I'm struggling to see which one) then there are enough parameters they can tweak.  Not just make the best armoured medium tanks even better armoured and at the same time get more mobility, which is my main issue with this.  Smoothbore gun is pretty much irrelevant although that used to be the cutoff point, but that was only after they broke their previous rule.

Just close your eyes and call it the T62Tweak!

Progetto 65 was proposed in 1969. It was proposed as an alternate to aquiring Leopard 1 tanks from Germany, asnot all of the Italian heirarchy agreed with bringing in tanks from other nations. However the Leopard 1 entered service in the Italian Army in 1971.
