Modernization of T-62M in Syria

According to "Messenger of Mordovia", newly arrived tanks T-62M received a positive assessment from the Syrian military. They are unpretentious in operation, in a number of characteristics they surpass the early modifications of the T-72, which are in service with the government army, for example, due to the sighting system. Part supplied by Russia tanks already involved in hostilities, including near Palmyra, other armored vehicles are awaiting upgrades.

Modernization of T-62M in Syria

The modernization is planned to be carried out by equipping the second generation Sarab-62 (Mirage-2) optoelectronic countermeasures complexes with the T-2M. In recent months, they have been used on various armored vehicles. They allow to neutralize the anti-tank complexes of the American production of TOW. In order to improve the quality of shooting at night, the T-62M will be equipped with a Viper (Viper) thermal imager, developed by experts from the Damascus research center. The Viper detection range of large objects is 4 km, however 1,5 - 2 km. In the current configuration, the targets are illuminated with an infrared illuminator, unmasking the tank for special enemy devices. The armored vehicles will receive the onboard protection standard in Syria conditions: dynamic protection and anti-battery kits uliativny lattice screens.

According to the results of the modernization, the T-62M will be able to compete adequately with more modern tanks fighting in the region.

    Finally, our people learned to let off the decommissioned equipment. And how I remember how to break down planes, throw equipment in the middle of the field, blow up ammunition in their dashing 90's hair stand on end. We also learn how to make money on it. And do not give out as humanitarian aid.

      in the photo, in a limousine, the tank commander drove up, accompanied by the traffic police? Syrian cops ride on "treshki", and ours are like suckers on "grants" ... crying

      Mar. Tira — back in 89m, I saw massively cutting tanks withdrawn from Afghanistan and Germany — tankers were sobbing soberly looking at it! !

      And what about the ammunition? The deadline has passed - to the landfill and to the air. There’s nothing to play in the lottery, it will shoot, it will not shoot, it will explode, it will not explode.

    And how much good we still have in storage! There is clearly enough for a couple of Syrian-type armies!

      GOOD that the storage is right with us! I liked the words about the specialists of the research center in Damascus. Research takes place in the shortest possible time, so it turns out.

    The T-62 is a good vehicle for ISIS, a worthy adversary. This is a plus for the lack of an automatic loader, the possibility of undermining a tank when it hits an ATGM decreases.

      There is absolutely no connection between the presence of an autoloader and a higher probability of “undermining" the BC as a result of getting ATGMs. These are your fantasies.

    Syria produces thermal imagers. Maybe it will supply us. And they finally put the air conditioning.

      Well done. Manned the tanks as best they could.
      Such thermal imagers are not suitable for us.

    About how? They removed all MIGs from duty, near the border with China, dismantled equipment, and not only secret ones. Moreover, during the check we found out the loss of two "alien" identification devices from them, took out an arsenal of airbase (Bombs, NURs, cruise missiles) into the quarry , within a week by two KAMAZ trucks. And then they blew it up. Did you see the deadline came out ????? And I thought it was a sinful thing that optimization was going on?

    Good tank T-62. Especially in the repair. How many times had to repair it in the fields with the help of a chisel and sledgehammer (in the literal sense), and after that make 100 km of the march. A hardy car, and weapons can still weigh a decent plush ..

    With such stuffing and T 34-85 could still fight. And what, T 34-85M? How do you like it?
