Tamiya 35108 Russian T-62 Tank Kit - CA208 Военная автомобильная техника
The T62 tank made its first official appearance in the victory parade to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the victory over Germany on May 9th 1965. It was the Soviet Union's reply to the Western new tanks. However, eight years later in October 1973, Israeli troops captured a considerable number of Arab T62 tanks and about ten of these were sent to the U.S. and put through exhaustive tests, which revealed everything about the tank which had been veiled in mystery.
