Medium Tank: T-62A

T-62A

Development of the first Soviet post-war medium tank started in 1951. In 1961 the T-62 tank, with a smoothbore gun, was deployed. At the same time a variant, the T-62A, with a rifled gun, was also deployed. In March 1962 mass production of the T-62A was discontinued. The T-62 tank was mass-produced from 1961 through 1975, with a total of twenty thousand vehicles manufactured. Later modifications of the vehicle are still in service.
