A production video documenting a T-62 main battle tank (MBT) which was captured and repaired by Ukraine and pressed into Ukrainian service. In the course of this war, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) have captured and “recycled” many armored vehicles, including Russian T-72 and T-80 MBTs, but little has been seen of the older T-62s pressed into service. Clearly Ukraine is determined to make use of every vehicle and piece of equipment available. Russia’s decision to employ these Cold War relics was seen as an act of desperation reflective of their substantial vehicle losses in this conflict. Even upgraded T-62s are no match for more modern tanks and they are vulnerable to even light antitank weapons. They likely will find a role as an infantry support platform.
