I see in the book 'The War for Africa' Twelve months that transformed a continent, by Fred Bridgland makes some passing reference to T64 tanks. eg "The infantrymen, from Castro's elite 50th division, were backed by more than a hundred T55 and more advanced T64 tanks. A full array of Soviet mobile radars had been moved south....." Page 348.



Not to be pedantic , but the T-64 tank was never exported outside the Soviet Union during the cold war. I trust the author must have meant the T-62 tank.

You are right. It's the T-62 that was used. There's a Russian book that says there were 30 of them that were brought over from Cuba.
