T-62 Variants

  • T-62 (Object 166) - basic version
  • T-62A (Object 165) - the basic version of the tank developed in parallel with the (Object 166) T-62. A new cast turret with a rifled 100-mm D-54TS gun + a mechanism for ejecting shells through the aft hatch of the turret was installed. Besides the standard 7.62-mm PKT coaxial machine gun with a range of 1,000 meters, the T-62A version features a 12.7-mm DShK antiaircraft machine gun with a range of 1,500 meters against ground targets and a slant range of 1,000 meters against aircraft. The T-62A also has a stabilized main gun, which enables the gunner to track and fire on the move with significantly improved accuracy.
  • T-62K - commander's T-62 with R-130 radio station, HF radio station and AB-1 charging unit for powering consumers during long-term work on the spot + reduced gun and machine gun ammunition. Command tank models also have a land navigation system which includes a gyroscopic compass and a calculator giving continuous enroute readout of the tank's location (in relation to its point of origin) and its distance from and azimuth to a predetermined objective.
  • T-62B (Object 166M) - an experimental tank equipped with smaller-diameter road wheels, like the 167 object, and a V-36F engine with a power of 640 hp. with.
  • Object 166ML - object 166M on which the ATGM 9K14 "Baby" was installed as an additional weapon.
  • Object 167M - At the turn of 1963–1964, materials on the T-62B tank (“object 167M”) were submitted for consideration to the scientific and technical council of the State Committee for Combating the Defense under the sauce of the initiative modernization of the T-62 tank. This combat vehicle differed from the serial tank in multi-layer armoring of the frontal projection of the hull and turret, had an “object 167” undercarriage, a 125-mm D-81 cannon with a Rain stabilizer and a T2S sight, a carousel-type loading mechanism, a B-2 type engine with a power 780 HP with a supercharger, improved radiators, air filters, fuel and oil systems, as well as reinforced transmission units. Thus, in 1964, L. N. Kartsev offered the country a new tank, obtained from the T-62 not in a revolutionary, but in an evolutionary way. With a high degree of continuity, which reduced its cost and facilitated both production and operation in the army. Well, considering that the Uralvagonzavod produced and tested the "object 167T" tank with a gas turbine engine, then it is quite possible to assume the possibility of a variant of the T-62B tank with a gas turbine engine. In this case, the latter would differ only in the power plant
