Response to Type 62

"assuming" something: chances are that you may be wrong.
In this case, you are.
The chinese Type 62 is not a copy of the russian T-62 tank.
It barely ressembles a "mini-type 59/T-55".

If you take a closer look at the box-art -or even better, at actual pics of the tank- you'll notice that the hull is smaller than the Type 59 one, the tracks are narrower, the turret is also smaller. Another huge difference is that the Type 62 is equipped with the chinese 62-85TC 85mm main gun.

And the total wieght is about 21 tons, far lighter than a T-62.
