From the manufacturer:

The T-62 originally was conceived as a companion weapon to the T-55, being essentially a T-55 up-gunned with the 2A20 115mm cannon.  Both the T-55 and the T062 used the same wheels, track, engine, transmission, hatches and other fittings.  The primary differences between the two vehicles were the T-62's lengthened hull and new turret design.  The new UT-5 cannon could fire its BR-5 APFSDS steel round through approximately 300mm of armor at a range of 1,000 meters.  This was adequate to deal with the then-perceived threat of such NATO tanks as the American M48 and later models of the British Centurion.  The T-62 was meant to add long-range firing capability to Soviet tank regiments being placed alongside T-55s, but in the later years of its deployment it fulfilled much the same role as the T-55.

Despite being introduced in 1960, and the improved performance of its sucessor, the T-72, the T-62 still sees service today in many of the world's armies; the Arab nations being the largest consumers outside the Warsaw Pact.  Egypt, Iraq and Syria have been notable users of the T-62, and Israel has acquired a quantity of T-62s in clashes with its neighbors and has rebuilt then to IDF standards. 

Molded in gray, black, tan, clear and brown plastic; includes decals, photo-etched parts, a metal gun barrel, and a length of copper wire. Will be 28.6cm long and 9.5cm wide when assembled; over 470 pieces.
