Looks mostly like a T-80 if I recall, as I think to recall the 72/90 only have five road wheels each side.  I could be wrong, but I could have sworn it.

The turret looks like it's a well bustled design, got two Shtora-1 boxes though like the 90 instead of the 80 (they only have one).  Like those clawed plates on the covers, and the AA guns on the sides of the bustle are just beefy.  I'd go for a slight change though, and see about a Gun Dish style radar just for the appearances.  The rocket-box I'm not quite sure about though.  Interesting is the second layer of ERA over the original clamshell layer.  It does also look like it's got the extra passive armor that's included in the T-90.

I'm looking forward to seeing you build it, man, should be quite a monster.

In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Its T-72 or T-90 based the front fenders are the same and they do have 6 wheels. The rear of the turret looks like russia's long rumored "black talon" All in all an awesome looking vehicle!! Looks like it could work for urban enviroments as well  :cheers: What a  :tank:  !!

True that, but still she'll be a right out beast.  The bustle does look like the Black Eagle, granted with some drugs added for kick.

This is your T-90 on Drugs.  Any Questions?

OK i am thinking either T72 or T80 as the base i think the T80 is slightly larger so it may be the better option? most of the turret will have to be scratch built and all done in 1/72 scale.

The T-80 is a slightly larger hull, and you could get away with claiming it's an upgrade off the UD so it's a diesel engine.  This would be probably why the 80's being upgraded (black eagle) while the 72/90 is being more to the term replaced (95).  That and the 80 being what they generally consider the "Break Through" tank would be a good reason to give it the extra firepower etc.

You could almost steal the bustle from something like a Leopard 2, and modify it that way so it fits nicely, as another option.
