You know, we are already in an alternate timeline sort of deal right now. Instead of the Soviets dumping "cool shit" like T-90s and BTR-80as on Juche, ditch those "campaign units" and instead go with the Soviets giving them "technical advice" that bumps their development forward a bit.
The Soviets helping Dear Leader field a 125mm gun on a Chnomaho doesn't seem so outlandish, at least in my opinion.
I think its more of an engineering problem then anything else. the way i see it, while its a heavily modified T-62 chassis, i doubt the turret ring is big enough to fit the soviet 125mm.
if you want to bend the timeline, simply assume that the Soviet/Norks develop a refinement of the BM-28 DU round, that has better penetration and can be fired from the same gun the Norks are familiar with.
