T-62 ERA (Model 1972) Soviet MBT

The T-62 was developed from the earlier T-54/55 series of tanks, but due to the cost of production never managed to completely replace its predecessor. Armed with a 115mm U-5TS gun, the T-62 was first used operationally in the Middle East during the Arab-Israeli wars. This kit depicts a T-62 upgraded with ERA plates (Explosive Reactive Armour) mounted on the turret, glacis and sides.
