About Jacques Duquette (Jacques)
FROM: MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES

The first model I remember building was a glow-in-the-dark P-38, running around my bedroom in the dark flying it, and stubbing my toes. I do a lot less running around with glowing models now. I mainly focus on 1/35 armor and figures, with Modern Russian military vehicles being my favorite. I a...

Very well done conversion and detailling of the T-62! Also the painting and weathering! Thank you very much for sharing! From which manufacturer is the mine plough? Is it the SKIF one?

Probably more to keep costs down by making the new ERA panels as easy to retrofit as possible. And with them all near the same size, manufacturing costs can be lowereed as well while increasing the survivability of the tank by a HUGE number against HEAT rounds/missiles and a comfortable amount against SABOT. Remember, these packages are designed to go up against M-48/60/Type 59/T-62-72/Merkava 1/2 type of threats, not the latest and greatest MBT's. This makes a pocket dictator a lot more dangerous to the professional armies of the world and seriously beefs up obsolescent reserve fleets. It isn't just a new ERA package, it is a new FCS as well. It has been likened to bringing the T-62 up to the level of the M-60 RISE but for a fraction of the cost of buying a M-60 RISE. Now, to be fair, noone has bought any of these conversions that I know of, so it must not be all THAT great. But it looks cool. I would drive one around if they gave me one!
