Hey everyone. I'm coming through on my word and I was able to pick up Trumpy's T-62 from Hobby Link for only 10 dollars

I understand that this kit is inaccurate so I wish to build a dramatic diorama around it to take away from the inaccuracies.

So any in theater or in combat photos would be amazing. My knowledge of soviet armor is very limited but hopefully the likes of the heavy hitters could chime in: Frenchy, Juren, Jacques...sorry if I misspelled any names or left any out.

Thanks everyone

Gee thanks Frenchy! You always come through.

Anything during combat operations though? Would love to include troops

The Afghan National Army (ANA) still uses early T-62s. Maybe it could be an option :

Hi Sean,

here in Russia is excellent book from the "Tanks of Uralvagonzavod" serie called "Tanks of the 1960's" about T-62 and its family.
No combat photos but many unique factory's photos and technical drawings, total 212 pages.
Price is not cheap -63$, but book is really excellent.
If you interest write me to [email protected] I think I can find it.

Hi Frenchy,
as usual some nice pictures coming from your secret source

The last one is strange looking with the US style smoke dischargers and grenade stowage boxes. Couldn't it be an OPFOR tank ?

Salut Olivier

According to the original caption you can find here (along with more T-62 pics) http://otvaga2004.narod.ru/otvaga2004/wars0/page/1_t62_3.htm, it's supposed to be another egyptian T-62...Could be a improved Egypt-built version ? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-62)
