The obsolete T-62, which were in production in the Soviet Union from 1961 to 1975, are increasingly appearing on the Russian side in the Russia-Ukraine war. The experts have The “experts” have also taken up who state Ukrainian do not have enough good tanks. Consequently, they can combat with these ancient tank and there is no use venturing new ones. This position is a vivid embodiment of the RF’s military strategy.
Firstly, it is an underestimating of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The T-62 has a poor gun and out-of-date target system, this tank can withstand nothing – it has no dymnamic protection system, its steel armour is poor. Ukrainians destroyed even the experimental T-90, it is not necessary to have Javerlin to target such equipment thouh. Its armour can be penetrated with the Soviet RPG-7, which is actually of the same age.
It is worth caring about new tanks, but the price is too high. Although the tank is ancient and as the military put it “dead” (outdated, not being used for a long time and kept under poor conditions), the tank crew are quite capable. It is the crew that are the highest value, not the tank is. not the equipment, but the people running it are proved to be the main value, as numerous military conflicts revealed. Russia, on the other hand, is still going to show its specific approach attaching the notorious “braziers” to the obsolete tanks, which have already proved to be rather inefficient in the battlefield.It does nopt cope with the main task of detonating the anti-tank projectile at the distance of the tank. The Javelins just break through the structure while the other ammunition of a smaller range strike lower. “Baziers” turned out to be only worth making the evacuation harder for the crew.
