World of Tanks Type 62 – 7 Kills 5,3K Damage
Medals received: High Caliber, Top Gun
The Type 62 is a Chinese tier 7 premium light tank.
The development of a lightweight version of the Type 59 tank was started in 1957. The new tank was designed to fight in the mountainous and boggy terrain of South China. The first prototype was built in 1962. Later the vehicle underwent several modernizations.
The Type 62 was made available from the gift shop (Last available for purchase July 19-21, 2016). It has also been given away as an award tank (usually as second prize to the Type 59), and was given away as a mission tank for completing the month long medium mission 25 times from September 1st to October 8th of 2014. Designed as a light tank and by all means an appearance almost like the Type 59, but that’s as far as the comparison goes. In terms of performance, this premium tank comes equipped with a 85mm gun with decent penetration, accuracy and reload, which is well suited for flanking tactics, fire on the move or sniping towards the sides of and rear of enemy tanks. It has better mobility and acceleration than the Type 59 with a top speed of 63km/h. But the armor is very weak despite having the same frontal slopes as the 59 and its not enough to protect the tank from incoming fire from most sources.
The Type 62 also shares the same module weaknesses as the Type 59, with a large ammunition rack at the back of the turret. It is not uncommon to find frontal hits to the turret damage both the gun and the ammunition rack. Despite this heartfelt weakness, the Type 62 can be a solid support tank as a good flanker and artillery hunter when the opportunity presents. It also earns very good credit income and its repair cost is very low unlike any other light tanks.
