Comparing: T-62A vs. Object 430 vs. 121
Development of the first Soviet post-war medium tank started in 1951. In 1961, the T-62 tank with a smoothbore gun was deployed. At the same time a variant, the T-62A, with a rifled gun was also deployed. In March 1962, mass production of the T-62A was discontinued. The T-62 tank was mass-produced from 1961 through 1975, with a total of twenty thousand vehicles manufactured. Later modifications of the vehicle are still in service.
A prototype of this medium tank was developed from 1953 through 1957 to replace the T-54. Soviet authorities wanted a tank with greater nuclear survivability and firepower, so in 1961 the project was discontinued in favor of the Object 432. Several prototypes of the vehicle were manufactured.
Development began in 1962 on a new medium tank based on the Type 59. The new tank was expected to feature improvements in firepower and armor protection. However, the project was canceled shortly after. Some technical innovations were applied later, in the development of the Type 69 tank. All 121 tank prototypes were destroyed during Chinese nuclear weapon testing.
