Trumpeter 1550 1/35 scale Russian T62 Mod 1975 Tank w/KMT6 Mine Plow.
The T-62 originally was conceived as a companion weapon to the T-55. It is Essentially a T55 up-gunned with the2A20 115mm cannon. Both the T-55 and the T-62 used the same wheels, track, engine, transmission, hatches and other fittings. The primary differences between the two vehicles were the T-62’s lengthened hull and the new turret design. The new UT-5 cannon could fire its BR-5 APFSDS steel round through approximately 300mm of armor at a range of 1000 meters. This was adequate to deal with the then perceived threat of such NATO tanks as the American M-48 and later models of the British Centurion. The T-62 was meant to add long-range firing capability to Soviet tank regiments being placed alongside T-55s, but in the later years of its deployment, it fulfilled much the same role as the T-55. This kit includes parts for the assembly of one model. The set requires both glue and paint in order to be completed. Paints and glue are not included
