    That's certainly the most detailed and thorough description of the T-62, or any tank for that matter, that I've ever seen.
    Thanks for posting.

    My only regret was that the author's statement, "the American intervention in Vietnam, or invasion, if you prefer" was not balanced with a like statement about the USSR's activities in Afghanistan. He only referred to the "Soviet campaign" in Afghanistan, thus lending the appearance of bias to his otherwise excellent article.

    I'm sure it is a propaganda  cyclops

    Did you read this sentence?
    In the 1972 modification of the T-62, it was given the upgraded TSh2B-41U sight with independent vertical stabilization as a transient solution. It lacks the usual components of a true stabilization system, like a gyrostabilizer system, so its performance is not very impressive. The sight has a mean vertical stabilization accuracy of 3 mils - meaning that it has an accuracy of 3 meters at 1000 m, or a maximum deviation of up to 1.5 m, which would incredibly inadequate for anything other than just general observation. Fortunately enough, that's all that it is meant for, as the sight is only stabilized when the cannon is elevated during the loading procedure. When the cannon elevates, the sight does not follow, allowing the gunner to use his handgrips to manipulate the elevation of the sight.
