The Latest Variant of a Half-century-old Tank Family

Half a century has passed since the debut of the T-72 main battle tank. This tank has various variants, and the T-72B3M is its latest modernized one. Compared to the T-72B3, it’s upgraded with the 1,130 hp V-92S2F engine, which greatly improves the tank’s maneuverability. It is also equipped with protection like the 4S23 Relikt explosive reactive armor, which makes its protection as good as the T-90. 


By working with the famous Russian army equipment research organization, Gur Khan Books Publishing House, MENG now presents this 1/35 scale T-72B3M main battle tank model kit. The finished model will be 280mm long, 113mm wide and 87mm high. Let us check its details.
