      The T-62 and 72 has no remote control for the commander's MG unlike the M60 and M1 Abrams, it's strictly "get the fuck out where you can be shot and use it manually" gig, so the Donbabweans would probably rather all get incinerated than use it.

        well by default they have coaxial PKT 7.62mm

        It still has a gun, park it far away and lob shells at random. Not like they care about Lugandan lives or anything.

        That's a shitty tactic for defense if you don't have a rangefinder of any sort. Before you correct me a coincidence rangefinder doesn't count.

        Yeah I'm honestly confused at why the Russians see this as a viable tank to use. At first I thought it was just going to be a decoy of some kind but they've actually been using them in their already undermanned BTGs with other more modern tanks. They're going to just get the crews killed.

        Because they might actually be running out of T-72s that aren't tied up for homeland defense or combat duties, or rusting away

          my man, at the point which your front armor is penetrable by an RPG-2 or LAW, you don't have a tank. You have a sixty year old piece of shit with no smoke launchers, no laser range finder, ancient ammo that is probably more of a risk to you than the enemy. You are throwing away lives.

            They still have M88 armored recovery vehicles when it comes to Patton variants. Last time they ordered new ones was in 2017 for batch of 11 additional vehicles.

          Nope. None left for a long time now. National Guard fully retired the remaining M48A5s and M60s in 1997. They were already retired from combat following desert storm and had FMS permits, even in the mid 2000s only a handful of M60s were left just for stuff like radar testing.
          The only "M60s" in service at all in the US (or in storage) are those in museums, for limited tests, or as gate guards.
          We didn't even keep the 105mm Abrams, they were all converted into 120mm M1A2 SEPs later in the 2000s
          The army keeps track of all the equipment they either use actively or have in storage, all 6200 remaining Abrams tanks are of these models.

            Anything with a shaped charge at all is probably not gonna hit that thing, and if it is gonna hit it, it's a tandem warhead and probably enough mass to crash through that shit without even fusing. You're just as retarded as the russian conscripts for thinking an improvised sun shade is gonna give you protection from munitions

              Go read through the archive, numbnuts. There was a Ukranian drone guy talking about how they've been moronrigging it to drop older explosives. The cope cage isn't going to do anything to an actual EFP, but it does provide an element of protection against a 70s era Soviet weapon that Ukraine has massive stores of.

      Don't know where you heard that T-62s don't throw turrets but they 100% do.
      Every tank without some form of safe ammo stowage (which is to say every russian production tank) will violently throw its turret if the ammo is hit directly either by shell fragments or spall from the armor.
      T-62s can be marginally safer than a 72 if all the ammo is stored in wet racks but let's be real they're not fucking doing that lmao
      >The gunner and commander sit on the left side of the turret, and the loader on the right. Like the T-55, the ammunition layout is fairly archaic, with few ready rounds in the turret, and the majority of rounds stored in the hull. This leads to an initial high rate of fire, which rapidly diminishes after the first 3-4 rounds; after this, rounds need to be loaded from the hull.

        What a silly image. First of all there's no such thing as "inert fuel". Second of all, the tracks are not inert and a tank shell will fuck them up. Thirdly, aiming for the barrel will fuck it up as well. Not every kill has to be a k-kill.

        • 1 month ago
          Yukari

          The point of the "inert" parts is that if you shoot the sponson fuel tank head on it won't do shit to the actual crew/internal modules, at most you've shot off a track.
          shooting a tank cannon is a lot harder than it sounds due to gun offset and movement, and why shoot his cannon when you can kill him with the round you're firing?
