ACE-72158 1/72 TIRAN 6 Israeli Main Battle Tank model kit

During the 1973 Yom Kippur war the IDF managed to capture the newest Soviet MBT of the time - the T-62. Plans for conversion into Tiran 6 were made, but the realtively small numbers captured, together with the massive numbers of M60 (Magach) MBT's supplied by the US brought them to a halt (several prototypes were made, however). In all there was only a small Tiran 6 brigade comprising of 2 enlarged tank regiments, each with 46 tank. This mean that the IDF always had less than 100 converted T-62. There is no evidence that the T-62 with 105mm gun were used in battle field.
