Hi everyone, before I start talking I want to kind of apologize. I don't know if you have seen my previous upleads, but I was lazy, and kind of demanding. I just want to say sorry. 

Anyways.

The T-62A, it turns out, has a 115 millimeter gun not a 100 mm gun. I think it deserves its proper gun, because it has under average speed and even with 7 degrees depression it still is on the low side AND hull armor is abysmal. I think it should get the 115 that it deserves, what about you?

If anyone has a reason it has the 100mm or an explanation , please reply.

No, the hull armor is still bad and speed is underaverage. Not overpowered

He didn’t say it was overpowered? He said it was well preforming. And he’s right. The tanks really good where it is. There is zero reason to do this. It’s one of the better mediums right now.

No reason why the T-62A should get a better gun. As it stands, its gun is already performing amazingly well and it's a medium tank so it doesn't need any hull armor. 7 degrees of gun depression along with a very good turret allows you to go hull-down and bounce lots of shots off of the turret alone. As for the speed, it's one of the fastest tanks in tier 10 and we really don't want such a strong tank to get even better.

The 115mm gun is a smoothbore gun

 

On the whole, WG has 2 rules for adding tanks to the game: 

1. No composite armor

2. No smoothbore guns

Apparently laser-guided antitank missiles are on the menu, though

 

Yes it's been beaten to death already, but seriously, why?

Why doesn't the WZ-120 get the 4 degrees of gun depression it had in real life? Better yet, why does the Type 59 get 7 degrees of gun depression when the WZ-120 gets 3 even though they are the same tank (in real life)?

They have different guns though. WZ-120 has -3 gd with its 122mm and -5 gd with its 100mm. Type 59 only has a 100mm with -7.

T-62A has a 100mm rifled gun wich allowed a better accuracy and projectile stabilization on kinetic projectiles. It's a separated tank from the base T-62 wich did mount a smooth-bore 115mm gun that allowed better use of chemical projectiles and even the use of ATGMs. If they add it, it may be a premium instead ( edit: nevermind, WG doesn't add tanks with smooth-bore guns)

it does not perform very well. it performs below average for tier 10 mediums. only the leo1, m60, and 121b do less damage per game and the winrate is only higher than those plus fv4202 and patton. doesn't matter how fast you fire when you only do 310 alpha with a turret with gaping holes in it. even medium gold ammo goes straight through the front of the turret on each side of the gun basically the entire way across.

The only way to get hit on the weakspots at the sides of the gun is if you're standing still, and you shouldn't do that in the T-62A
