I very much want to buy a Type 62. When it was available, I was out of work and could not buy it. Now that I have a good job, it is not for sale. That tank was the perfect premium for me. Please let me know if you are ever going to make it available again.

Looks like it certainly would be a good fit for you. It's hands-down my favorite tank.

 

Here's to hoping they release it for sale for you soon!

The chinese tier 7 light tank in the tech tree which you can grind too is better than the type 62.

 

Edit: didn't take account into the 9.18 nerfs :P

It's was good before the restructure...now it's even better. I can't tell you if it's OP because I just don't have that skill level to get those results.

My friend ground a whole month long mission to get his.

It about killed him.

 

The very next month they sold it in the premium shop.

He quit the game for two months over that one.

SmyleeRage recently 3 marked it on Twitch. Check it out if you get a chance, some incredible play. He's also currently listed as #1 in damage on dpg [edited]

 

My winrate from previous play in it really sucks, but since the patch it's been climbing steadily. When top tier it's fun to just play it as a Tier 7 medium.

Did the marathon for it a few years ago that required people to spam mediums for 25 days straight and only small few even got that done let alone the kv220 marathon. What killed the Type 62 for so long to the point where it was actually rare unlike the Hype 59 was the trash it has for gun and it costs 4k credits a shot to use the cHeat ammo for so little alpha. At least it was Easy to ace lol but with the update obviously people want it now and the Type 64 is so good now that it would not surprise me if it got pulled from the shop.

What made it rare, was it was an OP tier 6 when released. Then WG up-tiered it, and made it a nerfed WZ-131.

 

It is STILL a nerfed WZ-131, but it trains crews and makes good credits. Honestly you shouldnt need the HEAT shells, except for rare occasions. I find using camo and speed to relocate for better shots on armored targets is a better choice than HEAT spam.

Never seeing tier 10 again is a fantastic buff for the tank though. (T49s still one-shot you though)

While it is still a nerfed WZ-131...it's way closer now than it ever was before.  Before it was basically a stock WZ-131, now it crushes the WZ-131 in DPM and has better aim time to boot.  Lower pen for sure than the top 85mm on the 131 and lower motor power...but view range and DPM make it a very nice tank to have.

 

To the poster that said it hasn't been on sale since you started playing...yes it has.  I've seen it at least once a year...so maybe only sold once since you started but it was for sale last year for sure.

Advent calendar was last time it was sold, if I recall right. Wishing I had bought it as well.

Much much more enjoyable post 9.18. No more Tier 10 matches!
