T-72
This is a T-72 started about a year ago that I forgot existed and then continued. Found it again today and figured it was worth posting. Enjoy.

Yup, its a Russian T-72. Not my favorite tank by a long shot, but I do have a soft spot for it's turret shape.


In scale with all my other tanks, it was built for a LDD Iraq war vig in which it battled an M1A2 Abrams. The outcome is fairly predictable.


There are surprisingly few T-72s on the pages and even less quality ones. I took inspiration form several mocs and real pictures.


Featuring the signature fuel drums, a great target for your next HEAT round. Oh Russian Tank designers, always putting in video game style weak spots.


Birds eye view of the T-72, decked out in desert paint for Iraq or one of the 20 some odd nations that use the T-72.


Cross-section to show crew man #3. He doesn't have much room (thats russian tanks for ya').



On the home page. I know that the Explore page and Across mocpages are mores prestigious, but this is an accomplishment for me.

LDD file is for the T-72.

Haven't seen many T-72s on the pages (with good reason, the real life ones are so cheap) but your's is great! Looks pretty accurate, the turret shape is nearly perfect. I would recommend more tiles on top and cover up the gun mantle a little, it looks very open. Otherwise, great job!

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga I'm not a big fan of the turret shape- it seems too round and disconnected from the rest of the tank. However, you did a good job with the rest of the body, and about those fuel drums- that's way the USSR collapsed, right? :P
I'm not sure I get what you mean, but the real tank has a very round turret (this is a earlier version, not a modern upgrade). As for the fuel drums, that's a logical hypothesis. :)

Good stuff, the beast is about a T-55 as i said, the canards, the canards still need to be bigger, also, as i said, join the back of the cockpit, all the way to that forward sloped part in the middle of the aircraft, Engine intakes need to be bigger

Quoting Achintya Prasad Nice. I feel the turret should be a bit taller, but you got the shaping bang on!
Hmm, never really thought of doing that, I'll try it.
