Look at ALB. How many use pattons and T55? Not many. Why? Because they suck.
They suck compared to T-80 or M1A1, yes. If all you have is crap like T-55 or Pattons, you quickly learn to appreciate them...

I'd love to see T-34/122 as an Egyptian arty and some funny units like that, ofc Centurions, T-55s, T-62s and Pattons (and maybe Sherman, Pershing on Israeli side?) being most powerful units would be strange, but... who knows? I'd for sure play campaign in those climats.

I have never actually heard of the 55/62/other varients that were in the wars were "monkey varients" like happened with the 72 etc to be honest. In fact i have read many accounts that the stuff that Russia sent to the middle east was fully kitted out with night fighting etc aswell(also have read they were very much trained by the russians to use the kit too), so to say "monkey tanks" seems a little odd, as the only "monkey tanks" that went out there i know of had all that stripped out and was after the wars involving israel.
If we go on to later wars(ie iran/iraq and after the wars israel had), it would be the case, but then you get NATO armour being sold to them aswell which makes it more confusing.
