Re-commissioning: why Russia is modernizing its T-62 tanks


The workshops of the 103rd Armored Repair Plant received the first T-62 tanks (T-62MV in the photo) for deep modernization. Decommissioned combat vehicles, it was decided to reanimate: equip with modern electronics and improve the armor protection of the hull. T-62 tanks were the most massive combat vehicle in the Soviet army in the 60-70s of the last century. During the Arab-Israeli conflict, the T-62 was rated as the most combat-ready tank in the world, Military Watch Magazine recalls.


Participation in the Iran-Iraq conflict showed the confident superiority of the T-62 tank over the American M60 and the British Chieftine. 22 thousand tanks produced in the Soviet Union were in service with a dozen countries and participated in all armed conflicts of recent decades.

The main combat units of the modern Russian army are the T-72 and T-80 tanks. However, the T-62, despite the outdated equipment, has certain advantages over the T-72 and T-80. Technical maintenance of the T-62 is noticeably easier, and operating costs are lower. This model of the Russian tank is easier to train crews, which allows you to quickly deploy tank formations in places of armed conflict. It was the speed of training tankers that determined the use of the modernized T-62M in the Syrian operation.

Updated T-62M are adapted for combat in urban environments. Many of these tanks have been modernized with the active participation of specialists from North Korea. In particular, laser rangefinders and new anti-personnel ammunition are of Korean origin.

With the deployment of the SVO in the Donbass, the need to quickly equip motorized infantry units with tanks became especially acute. The modernized T-62M is the best suited for the rapid formation of new units, especially in the new territories of the Russian Federation. The militia forces of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions will be able to quickly integrate into the regular Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

It is expected that the modernization of the 103rd BTRZ will affect up to a thousand T-62 tanks. The capabilities of the updated vehicles will be complemented by sights with thermal imagers and dynamic armor. Supplementing the ammunition load with APFSDS shells will give tangible advantages to the T-62M tank in the confrontation with the Ukrainian T-64s.

    In general, how is the situation with the lifting of Russian sanctions against the DPRK adopted under pressure / to please the United States?
    By the way, the DPRK recognized us, the DPR and the LPR, and accepted our entry into the Russian Federation.

    Maybe it's worth being friends with the DPRK a little closer than the West wants?

    We buy cruise missiles (or rather, their likeness) in Iran.
    We take out tanks that have been taken out of service for a long time and modernize them with the help of the DPRK.
    I have nothing against these countries, but ... leads to interesting thoughts.

    I don't know how current events will end

    Z. Y. : Once upon a time, the Bolsheviks actively campaigned for defeat in the Russo-Japanese War, because a victory would make it possible to hide the huge problems of the Russian Empire under a magnificent carpet.
    And every day their position becomes more and more clear. Still unacceptable, but already understandable and somewhat logical.

      I will add to this the mobilization of the civilian population with the existing and unused professional army. What is this uncommitted army doing now?
      If a part of it was hastily transferred to the reserve, then it is precisely it that needs to be picked out from there, and put into operation on demand! Military personnel have already spoken about this.
      What caused the need to send plainly untrained conscripts to the front, if there are professionally trained people who receive, or received a salary from the state for this? Where are all these people now?

        Everything is as simple as shelling pears, the mobilized will be fired upon and turn into experienced fighters, and the army will grow by 300 thousand (well, actually by 270) attack aircraft. This is logical, we still have to fight with the Poles. And tanks in the same way. Now we need to restore the army, not by washing it like that, there is nowhere to go.

          It is for this that Putin appointed Serdyukov to reduce our regular army and Soviet-style generals in the management of the Moscow Region. Now let's go back?
          Remember the concept that Putin has been promoting for a long time:

          Compact professional army to participate in local conflicts. Modern nuclear forces for their own security and protection of sovereignty.

          Now, on our knees, we will hastily build up the army with conscripts, while the "professional contract army" created with the country's money and trained is scattered to their apartments. In order not to lose this parade army completely in front of the world community?

          This is logical, we still have to fight with the Poles.

          Not with the Poles, but with NATO, that is, with all of Europe, as it was in 1941. With all the consequences for the country in its current state.
          I do not believe that everything that is happening now, and in the last 22 years, is nonsense. Stupidity - to believe in it. This is betrayal at the highest level.
          In essence, and in terms of consequences for the country

          Drawing Russia into a war with NATO corresponds to the plan of the Anglo-Saxons and is necessary for them in order to destroy Russia with the hands of Europe and appropriate its resources, and make Europe weakened by Russia its production appendage.
          Only a threat with our nuclear weapons to the territories of the Anglo-Saxons, their home, can force them to retreat in all positions.
          It's long overdue to use the second part of the concept:

          Compact professional army to participate in local conflicts. Modern nuclear forces for their own security and protection of sovereignty.

          However, the current leadership is leading Russia to war with NATO.

              I propose to fight, but with the master of this war, and not with Ukraine, not with Poland, and not with Europe.
              Until we force him to retreat from his plans, all our actions will deplete our strength and bring his victory over us closer. We will bleed out in the war with Europe, and Japan will be involved. If something remains of us at the end, the master of the war will finish it himself.
              If we force them to retreat, he himself will recall his entire gang, and everything will end with the fulfillment of the conditions of the Ultimatum that we flushed down the toilet.
              Our history suggests the recipe - in 1961, we already forced the Amcricans to abandon the almost ready nuclear invasion.
              And now - the only argument that breaks all their plans and delicate calculations - is a rude threat of nuclear destruction to their own home. Yes - this is a threat of mutual destruction. But a grenade in the hands of a person sentenced to death has a decisive effect on the executioner, and changes fate. The current government, unfortunately, did not leave the country any other options.

    after 20 years of activity of Putin's cadres in all sectors of the country, it will be necessary to call for help from specialists from all countries friendly to the Russian Federation (and not just North Koreans) to restore the fact that Putin's cadres deliberately ruined and ruined. and most importantly, there are no culprits, there is no one to imprison ... they ruined and dumped, some in Israel (Khloponin), some in the USA and the EU (Serdyukov Chubais). Army General Bulgakov, suspected of missing 1,5 million sets of uniforms, not only was not punished, but was successfully reassigned to a new position)). this tipok caused great damage to the combat capability of the Russian Army (for which he was probably awarded a cross with a NATO medal), calmly continues to "serve" the Fatherland. for 30 years, huge grandmas left the country, up to 1,5 trillion in dollars, these grandmas could be used to modernize and rebuild two Russias, including the Army

    Putin's defective managers pissed and plundered everything, without organizing anything to create a new one. Well, at least the Soviet T-62 tanks are still in stock and with the help of modernization and North Korean comrades they will be able to fight in dill. A shame! They thought they would defeat the dill for free, but it didn’t work out. Freebie comes out sideways.

        secondly, he may be the only statesman, only the problem is that these processes are not controlled by statesmen, but by those who stand behind them ... as an example, the change of Johnson (which many in Russia rejoiced in their stupidity) ... Boris is gone, has Britain's policy changed? and Putin also follows the flags of those who steer the world process. no matter how he puffs out his cheeks and tells fables to his flock ... and the best confirmation of this is the presence of watchers from the financial block of the government, who COMPLETELY slow down the development of the Russian economy

      That was the Patriotic War. And until 1944, light tanks T-60 and T-70 with thin armor were produced, although it is clear that they were worse than the T-34, and even more so the heavy KV or IS. The T-62 tank is understandably not very suitable for a breakthrough, although we send both infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers into battle, but at least there is a place for it in the defense. What if we upgrade?

    If you fight only with more modern systems, what will remain in reserve?

        Why not fight new? Fight, but if five hundred T-90s stand behind a hundred T-62s and Armat, this will not worsen the situation. Of course, it would be nice to snap your fingers and think: so that I have all the weapons that are the newest and the most. It doesn’t work like that, and no one succeeds, even the States with their crazy military budget. Russia has breakthrough areas, such as hypersonic missiles.

      In the USSR, they calculated that in modern combat, a tank would be enough for 8 minutes of battle. Therefore, any batch of armor was in the thousands. This is for Putin, armor is needed only for parades. Therefore, for 20 years, money went to palaces, yachts, and not to defense.

    If you look at July-August 1941. MUCH more numerous tank forces of the USSR, already having more than 1000 medium and heavy T-34 and KV tanks, were losing battles to smaller and less perfect troops gathered from the world one by one. Doesn't this teach modern couch strategists anything? The main thing is not armor, but the coordination of all available forces. Here one super-specialist was amazed at the tank biathlon. To my remarks that this is window dressing, and not the creation of that same network-centric army, he was furious. Having a dozen trained crews is the ideal of a show-off who cares about the report. You need to evaluate the RESULT. With the extra amount of armor, they will no doubt be taller.

    The question arises why human, organizational and financial resources are directed to the modernization of the T62, and not the more modern T72.

    In general, there are no motorized infantry in Russia. If the author does not know this, then there is no need to read the rest of the writings of this specialist.

    As far as I know, T-62 tanks will be used in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions as a defense of defensive lines.

    Probably, t72s are physically absent in the required quantities (it’s not for nothing that the Russian Federation has been in the top of the world’s arms exporters for so many years).
    And there is no smell of "economy" here. Maintaining 2 different tanks with different spare parts, shells, requirements for crew training and even crew composition is corny more hemorrhoids and more expensive than one universal MBT.
    That is why, by the way, the concept of MBT was invented.

    Yes, great, at the same time picking up rusty 115-mm blanks from warehouses (by analogy with that story with machine guns), organizing the separation of support from the rest of the tanks that are now in service is super simple. Plus, the lack of an automatic loader means more crew size, but apparently they don’t give a damn about it, as always. Well, if Leopard-2 or Abrams actually appear in Ukraine, it will not be possible to knock them out of t 62

    Even if this tank is used as a self-propelled gun, and not as a means of breaking through strong points, they can be used quite effectively. Approach the front line, shoot your ammunition for adjustments and quickly retreat to another site .... For earlier, I apologize for my thoughts - I'm sitting in an armchair, in a warm apartment, in Siberia.

    If you believe the wiki:
    2A46 (T72 cannon) HE sighting range 12, cumulative 000.
    2A20 (T62 gun) HE sighting range 6000, cumulative 1200.
    Feel the difference.

    But in general, yes.
    T62 for firing from a cannon really will have to approach the front line.
    Unlike the T72, which can operate from safer distances.

      As for the T-62 tank. It was not in vain that I wrote about the Oryx website, where the losses of both sides are published with supporting photographs, and with the numbers of the lost cars. So, according to this site, the T-62 tank has minimal losses ... Maybe this is due to its use not so widely, or in the second echelon, but this is a fact.

    Rejoice that there is a Soviet T-62 tank, and it was not allowed to be put on nails. After the modernization, the T-62 will go to the front, it's better than nothing. The war in Ukraine will not end quickly, and tanks are needed, and tankers. The Russian Federation has 10 thousand T-62 tanks, if we take it proportionally, then 10 thousand missiles will be needed to destroy them, such is the arithmetic. The Russian Federation has no time and no resources to saturate the front with modern tanks. But there is a Soviet tank T-62.

      The tank is good. It is necessary, of course, to strengthen it with armor and dynamic protection. He will have his say.
      As for the Leopards, they are on fire. Like the Abrams and Leclercs and others. They burn and explode. You just need to properly destroy them. And ours have already learned this for sure. In short, 62 will not be superfluous.

    I think that the T-62M will be able to withstand the Ukrainian T-64s. But will he be able to resist the German Leopard if they still appear among the crests?

    In principle, the article turned out to be quite good, but a bit incomplete. In addition to tanks that are easy to learn and operate, there are also ammunition lying in warehouses since the time of Khrushchev. Actually, I have already written on this topic.

    No. this is not desirable, the difference in generation for a direct collision of tanks is too much. The score will not be in our favor.

    And in general, tanks, contrary to the ideas of the inhabitants, are not created at all to fight their own kind. Although this happens and is even inevitable.

    However, no one is going to use the T-62 in U. as tanks. Just like a heavy assault SU of direct infantry support.

    Your ideas are interesting .... Ukrainians almost masturbated on their "wunderwafer" (I'm talking about the "holy Javelins", if anyone didn't understand. So, ask how many "javelins" hit U. and how many Muscovite tanks they managed destroy.

    One feels that you "did not study the military in a real way" (C). :( In fact, a high-precision weapon is considered to be a weapon that hits the enemy with the first shot with a probability of more than 50%. So even if the probability of hitting is 90% (and these are in reality exorbitant figures), then at least 10K missiles are needed for 11 K tanks. But this is ideal conditions. In reality, "javelins" are destroyed without firing a single shot. or even fall into enemy hands. I'm already silent about theft and theft (these are two big differences). So in reality, to destroy 10K tanks and 100 There will obviously be few for the Javelins.

    In fact, the T-72 and T-80 in storage (I'm already silent about the military) are much larger than the T-62. But they are harder to learn, more expensive to operate, and it makes sense to store them for a more serious enemy than U. For we are still fighting not with U., but with NATO!
