I built my 17th model, a Soviet T-62 main battle tank, in three months, from February to April 2016. This time, instead of the Red Army vehicle shown in the cover art, I represented it in service in an army of a Middle Eastern nation.
I wanted to represent this T-62 model as in service with the Iraqi army, during the Iran-Iraq war. Here is it’s photo gallery!
History of the T-62, a main battle tank used by the Soviet Union and its allies starting from the 1960s.
The T‑62 is a Soviet main battle tank built in the 1960s. It is an enlarged version of the T‑55, expressly created for mounting a more powerful armament.
