And we've got another Daesh video of a T-62M being hit by an ATGM.  No explosion nor any view of the tank after the hit.

Bottle glass cast into steel pipes would be not too bad, and doable in backyard furnace.

Ghetto Kvartz ^_^
 

Yes, but to work it needs a bit of containment. Glass in thick pipes in concrete maybe. Still easy to do.

 

It is easy to create an insulating substance out of equal parts of plaster of Paris and regular sand. Apply the gloop on anything you want, and just wait for it to dry.

Cast the glass into pipes, then the pipes into concrete cast in a sheet metal box. Steel supports welded onto the face of original armor can penetrate into the concrete, attaching the whole structure securely.

The "Former al-Nusra" terrorists used a T-62 chassis fitted out as an SVBIED during their assault on SAA positions in Hama province of Syria earlier today:

It is not clear whether this SBVIED had only a driver or if a 2nd splodydope was stationed in the rounded addition that replaced the turret with an MG.  The results of the vehicles attacks were visually spectacular and devastating to anyone near it when it blew up.

A 5th Corps T-62M takes an ATGM hit near Palmyra.  Caught in the open with no support, again.

Even if they did have infantry support it would not have helped. The missile was most likely fired from a position far enough away that it is unreasonable for Infantry to cover. It's more about placing your tanks in a position were they cannot be hit by an atgm. Ex. Behind a hill.

From that angle if it hit the BDD it would probably have a good chance.

Not much secondary effects. Was it already dead?

No, given that crewmen can be seen bailing out of the tank after the hit.

Bailing out or bailing off?  You can see them milling about outside the turret before and as the missile strikes.

A rebel (aligned with HTS but not actually HTS) T-62 used during the recent Hama offensive:

And an SAA 5th Corp T-62M sent to Hama governorate to help stop said offensive:

T-62 production from 1962 to 1973. From left to right year, T-62 production, T-62s supplied to Soviet Army, and total tank production. Apart from 167 vehicles, all the other were supplied to Soviet Army. Are there any reference to Egyptian and Syrian T-62s coming from Soviet stocks? I had assumed they were brand new vehicles, but now I realize that supplies were very quick.

 

There might be a couple of years left in the graph, as other sources state that production lasted until 74/75.

I posted this in the SADF vehicle books thread as well, but re-discovered this pic of a T62 being tested by the SADF at De Brug outside Bloemfontein. Would have been mid to late 80s

Great picture there.  Did the SADF ever make their findings/opinions of the T-62 public?
