Hi. I recently bought Trumpeter's new T-62 Model 1975 w/ KMT-6 mine plow. I was searched for reference photos of it, and turned up not much, mostly just photos of the kit box art. I was wondering is it just a Model 62 with a laser range finder on it?

They started being fitted to new mod. 72 T-62's. As tanks were taken in for maintenance they were also upgraded with those tracks from that point forward.

I have a question regarding tracks. I know at some point the T-62 started using the T-72 style track and sprocket, but I haven't been able to find and good info as to when or how. Was it used on new built tanks? Refitted? And when did this start happening? I know I have seen at least 1 pic of a Syrian T-62mod72 in Lebanon with the RMSh tracks, so they were on some tanks in 1982. Any more info would be much appreciated.

If you are just looking for a way to put a AAMG on it, either get the correct parts from another kit for the loaders hatch and mount, they should fit, or else make a field mod, which would just be a hollow steel pipe welded to the turret and the AAMG mounted on that...similar to how the AAMG is mounted on the T-80U.

Erik,

Roger, I understand all that...model differences etc. I just wanted to add the gun to my Model 62 as a field modification or upgrade.

Pictures of the mount to attempt a scratch build are hard to find. Is the mount available anywhere? If not got a good picture for a scratchbuild attempt??

Where are you in Ohio? I'm originally from Youngstown...late of Oahu.

Many Thanks,

Bill

Here's the Miniarm gun

Or are you looking for the the actual mount for the gunners hatch? You're going to need one since the mod 62 kit doesn't come with the hatch needed to mount an AA MG since, as Jacques said, the mod 62 never had an MG.

Jacques,

Like I said, I'd love to add the miniarm DSHKA to my model 1962, but I can't find a good photo. Does anyone know if that Miniarm DSHKA has an AA mount with the kit?

Thanks,

Bill

T-62 m62's NEVER had a AAMG mount. Neither did the m67's. Only the m72's had the AAMG mount. Lot of arguments about it, but no photos.

Hi. I've seen t62a`s in Osetia with bar armour. Is that the same tank as the trumpeter
T62 (1972). If so has any one got pics of it or can help me in any way thanx.

Anybody have an idea what the T-62 DSHKA mount looks like? I want to add Miniarm's Dshka to my model 1962 but I can't find a picture of the AA mount? Does the Miniarm kit come with one?

Thanks!

It doesn't seem that any T-62MV ever saw combat. It was a rare model that was usually assigned to far east units.

Most likely wire is used. It is also possible, but I do not know if this is what they did, that the tracks are welded to the grab handles.

I wonder if any of you know how the spare tracks were secured to the turret in this pic. I would assume something is holding them to the grab bars, but what??

Can anyone tell me if any of the Syrian Arab Army's T-62s have been fitted with ERA? I really like the look of the tank with ERA but for the sake of accuracy I'll build an earlier variant, if I must. Thanks!
