There may also be a combination in between. The only fix right now is to cut the bolts off one side and glue them to the other side for the left handed run. I do a lot less running around with glowing models now. As a secondary armament the Type 62 light tank was given the 12. The Type 62 also shares the same module weaknesses as the , with a large ammunition rack at the back of the turret. Research on the internet will show you a lot of other interesting markings and paint schemes. There is a two sided color insert with painting and decal instructions.

Type 62 Dragon Tank Review from PENETRATION

Hull: Again, all parts generally fit really well. Stealth is a light tank's best defense, and the Type 62 is no exception. More than 1,393 vehicles were produced between 1963 and 1989 when it ended. I do not have notes on it because I thought it was a minor fix that, quite frankly, I forgot about. Play your role and it's not necessarily a death sentence to get matched vs.

Its not clear which nations still have them in service, although based on available knowledge it seems that all original users still have it either on active or reserve status except for North Korea which didn't have them in service as of 1995. Produced by Norinco when it was accepted for service in 1963, it was renamed the Type-62. The rear fuel tanks are manufactured very nicely in a one piece tube that is much nicer to deal with than the usual split tube. Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. It is also equipped with a dome shaped ventilator on the right hand side of the turret in the front of the loader's hatch. The development of a lightweight version of the Type 59 tank was started in 1957. The Type 62 light tank was given a four man crew configuration, with the driver seated on the left hand side of the front of the hull, the tank commander and gunner seated on the left side of the turret in a tandem formation and the loader on the right hand side of the rear of the turret.

Apart from his usual duty of reloading the gun after it has been fired by the gunner, the loader is also responsible for operating the 12. There may be some height variation of the idler, but there is photographic evidence showing it at 3 different heights, and how Trumpeter has engineered it is correct for at least one. Got the Dragon this past Saturday. Some people may want to replace it with an aftermarket barrel. Given the chances of ammunition rack damage, Safe Stowage followed by Adrenaline Rush for the Loader is important, however as the Loader is also the radio operator the Situational Awareness skill should not be overlooked.

As a scouting tank, increased view range is essential, so the Commander should train in Recon. Despite this heartfelt weakness, the Type 62 can be a solid support tank as a good flanker and artillery hunter when the opportunity presents. The Type 62 is still used by the Chinese People's Liberation Army Ground Forces and other nations. Aside from the tracks, it is a nice little kit. There's another periscope vision block in the front of each turret hatch.

Approximately 1400 were produced, in all versions. Parts D1 and D2, the filler parts above the idler station, needed some putty though it is hard to see when the build is done. There is nothing included in the kit. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes. It is not uncommon to find frontal hits to the turret damage both the gun and the ammunition rack. Not bad for the very first battle in this tank though Good game, and looks like you are one of the few good Dragon players.

Sometimes some challenge is needed in a build, and this kit has just the right amount of challenge for any but the most basic builder. It has three periscope vision blocks which provide the driver with forward vision. Although the Type 62 light tank is similar to the Type 59 main battle tank in appearance, it has a smaller hull and turret. Per my experience, that's a mastery on a win. They were widely used by the Vietnam People's Army in 1960s and 1970s and took part in the Ho Chi Minh Campaign in 1975. The Type 62 light tank is protected by steel armour. And I stand by my 70% recommendation.

Step 7 is missing the label for part B8, which goes between part C21 long narrow storage box and the hull top. The tank can be fitted with Type 762 light mine clearance system and Type 762A light multi-purpose mine-clearance system in the front of the hull. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. For the gunner, Snap Shot first then Deadeye to make every shot count. It has also been given away as an award tank usually as second prize to the , and was given away as a mission tank for completing the month long medium mission 25 times from September 1st to October 8th of 2014.
