It's not out yet.

You can find the stats in the wiki.

I'm not going to buy this because I don't want to be a scout in high tier as a premium tank. I much rather do it in something else.

No, rather grind to a tier 5 dedicated light and have slight credit losses after every battle. Just doesn't seem like the type 62 will be able to keep up with some of the other tanks.

From what I've heard, it plays like a Chaffee.

Then it won't be a great scout, more so a flanker/support light.

I definitely will get either a Type 59 or the 62, I'll probably give it a couple days to see the 62s reaction then make a decision. But I'm definitely walking away with something made in Shenzhen by a dude wearing a shirt with the apple logo upside down.

So it plays like a french tank you mean. Especially looking at it's armor.

I already have the type 59 for almost a year and it's stats are way better for the little bit extra money. Given all the tier 10 TD's and meds now in the game along with the tier 10 heavies, this thing will be a 1-2 shot target for most of the matches as it's MM is treated like a tier 6 light and will see tier 8-10 regularily. It's top speed is even slower than the type 59 and it's gun with 130 pen and 160 damage will be pretty anemic to most of what it will encounter. Dollar for dollar, the type 59 will give a much better return in xp and credits.

I really like the Type 59 that I've had for for almost a year now. I recently bought the KV-5 to train my IS-7 crew, and because it was the 2nd fastest tier 8 prem (imagine that). I like mobility. I think it is really cool that WG is giving us a chance to buy a mobile, relatively high tier prem.

All that said, I doubt I will buy the Type 62. It's rather expensive, really, for a tier 6 that probably won't make as much creds as tier 8s [though I am really keen on hearing the "field reports" about how much it actually makes], and most of all, now that I have two credit makers already, it is not in any nation that I can use for training crews.

I'd rather have a real premium higher tier medium tank (not SP - too slow for my taste) of any of the nations that actually have a tech tree, so that I could grind both money and crew.

Actually the Tier 6 French light AMX 12t has more armor than the Type 62

No for me. Don't have the money to spare and I'd rather grind to a "true" light then buy one with real money.
