ACE-72155 1/72 T-62M Soviet Main Battle Tank model kit
In 1972, as part of the general upgrade affecting T-55 fleet as well, the turret of the T-62 was modernized to permit a 12.7mm DShKM anti-aircraft machine gun to be fitted over the loaders hatch, this version is commonly called T-62A in NATO. Other changes on this version included a new stowage arrangement for the OPVT (on the turret side), improvements in the fording attachment and a new RMSh tracks and drive spocket. Unlike the T-55, the practice of adding a new DShK mounting to older T-62 was not done.
