T-62M upgrades were introduced in 1983. These consisted of the Volna fire control system, BDD appliqué armour package, an additional belly armour plate for anti-mine protection, and 10mm thick reinforced rubber ‘bazooka’ side skirts. The additional two horseshoe shaped blocks fitted to the front of the turret were quickly nicknamed
Brezhnev’s eyebrows.

The Soviet Union's most powerful forces are stationed in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, poised on the boarder with West Germany ready to strike at a moment's notice. They are equipped with the very best Soviet industry has to offer, from sophisticated missile firing T-64 tanks and powerful T-72 tanks to versatile BMP infantry fighting vehicles, as well as plentiful BTR-60 armoured personnel carriers. Supported by elite Afgansty Air Assault troops, powerful self-propelled artillery, and effective and numerous anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, there will be little that the corrupt capitalist armies of NATO can do to stop them.

The Volna fire control system included laser rangefinder in an armoured box over the main gun, a new gunner’s sight, new commander’s sight, new stabiliser, and a new ballistic computer. The T-62M could also fire the 9M117 Bastion (AT-10 Stabber) guided missile through its 115mm smoothbore gun. The tank was fitted with a 1K13-BOM night and ATGM launcher sight. However, it could not be used for both functions simultaneously.

The tank was fitted with a gun thermal sleeve, new radios, and a new V-55U diesel engine developing 620 hp (462 kW).
