The Type 62-I (aka WZ-131A) was the first major upgrade of the Type 62 tank. It had a number of upgrades, most noticeable is the Laser Range Finder mounted above the main gun, shield mounted around the 12.7mm Machine Gun mounted on the Loaders hatch and smoke grenade launchers on either side of the turret front.

Some were also spotted later on with side skirts on the hull and a storage rack on the turret.
