  3. Have Cuban T-62M's been upgraded with the 125mm 2A46? It resembles the 2A46 more than the 115mm U-5TS

    1. I'm afraid you got confused by the presence of a thermal sleeve around the U-5TS.

    In this video dedicated to the Cuban special troops "AVIBRAS" I extrapolated a few frames in which you see some BMD-1, the first hidden refuge in the cave, then some BRDM-2 modified to Cuba for transportation, as well as the crew , a small number of soldiers, which led to the change deletion from the entire system of four small auxiliary wheels and the necessary changes to install the two side doors for entry and exit of troops.
