I'm hooked

OK I'm interested... any closeup shots of the rocket launchers? Any info on the lauchers at all? Now this would be a cool project! They look like simple launchers... but you never know. I guess if there isn't much reference out there for them then nobody could argue the point:)

More Egyptian T-62 Photos

Steve,

Here are several more photos which might be of interest. All were taken during the 1970s.

Regards,
Joe B.

Thank you

Thank you for some wonderful shots. Now this looks like the ATGW version - would they be Sagger? or Snapper? the missles. The rocket launcher version which I think Mig is refering to - does anyone have info on the size of the rockets?

Best regards

Steven

U sure

February 20 2003, 9:13 AM 

Thanks guys - I guessed there not Sagger - too small! Are u sure the rocket launchers are smoke launchers - seem quite large? Any guess on the ATGW? Maybe Swingfire? Swatter?

Cheers

Smoke rockets for me

February 20 2003, 1:03 PM 

The Egyptians do have a history of adding smoke rockets to T-62, so they would make sense - doubtless for ATGW suppression or local smokesreening.

ATGW makes less sense, given the conflict between the role of tanks and ATGW launchers and the fact that there are several of them on the tank. Would the crew have time to be messing about with ATGW in battle? And they aren't exactly well protected...

Smoke rocket are probably right

February 21 2003, 2:03 AM 

I think you’re right regarding the smoke rocket. I remember an old article in Mil Mod by Vasco Barbic explaining different T-62 versions. He presents a SAKR modified T-62 with two types of smoke rocket. And there is an article in Military in Scale where he builds one of them. Really cool. Barbic did a lot of very good work on Egypt armour during the eighties and early nineties. Hope someone will release his “Complete work” someday.

Yes u guys are right

February 21 2003, 3:54 AM 

Yes I think you are all right - smoke launchers to suppress incoming ATGW is probably the most logical explanation. AS u say, there is no way a tank crew will have time to fire ATGW especially in a cramped and noisy T62!! Also if the concept of mounting ATGW did actually have merit I guess the modern tanks would have such an arangement rather like the AMX-13 with SS11.

Cheers

Thank you all for the help!

Steven
