The Modelling News website posted the Russian edition of 2018 Zvezda catalogue. There are lots of modern Russian subjects listed.
I wonder if the T-90MS is based on their earlier T-90 kit?

Kit#3630 Msta S SPG
Kit#3654 Urals 4320 truck
Kit#3575 T-90MS
Kit#3665 Polite people - russian soldiers in Crimea?
Kit#3681 T-14 Armata heavy APC
Kit#3682 GAZ Tiger with anti tank missile Kornet
Kit#3683 GAZ Tiger - new version?
Kit#3684 modern Russian tank crew?
Kit#3685 modern Russian parade tank crew?
Kit#3695 BMPT Terminator 2 (How is it different from Kit#3636 BMPT?)

Thanks for the link and items list Tony.

The BMPT T2, at least looking at the photo, the missile weapon system is a little different.

Erick,Greg,

Both vehicles will come from new tooling-at least according to what is written on the first page of Zvezda 2018 catalogue.

There will also be an Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.E!
That's great, because the one and only other option is a Dragon offering from 2005- hard to find/afford.

But strangely it doesn't have a new mold tag so could it be the Dragon kit in their box like the King Tiger? Or all new like the Elephant etc.?

If so it's one for the stash. The suspension and hull if their Pzkpfw IV was nice, it was the zimmerit only on the skirts that put me off.

The T-2 is attractive.

Consult the UralVagonZavod website... where to go if you need to order one
3695 will be this:
Fire Support Combat Vehicle BMPT-72

3636 was this:
Fire Support Combat Vehicle BMPT

Mathew,
I don't think the identity of 3695 is clear. The catalogue photo of 3695 does not seem to represent Tiger Models kit# 4611 or Trumpeter kit #9515. It looks like a "hybrid". The turret looks like it is a BMPT-72 because the four missiles are mounted horizontally. But the hull of the vehicle in the catalogue picture looks like the Ramka Object 199 (as represented by Trumpeter kit# 5548 Zvezda kit #3636 and Meng's kit# TS-010) because you can see the two grenade launchers on each side of the hull. The BMPT-72 do not have hull grenade launchers.

I am also waiting for the Zvezda T-15 Armata heavy AIFV because it should be less complicated than the Panda kit. Maybe down the road Zvezda will give the market the Bumerang VPK-7829 8x8 wheeled APC ?

Tony, yes, I agree, I hadn't seen this before; in fact it looks just like this example, apparently photographed in Syria:


"The vehicle is a previously unseen hybrid. While using the hull of the BMPT Terminator it has the turret of its successor, the BMPT-72 Terminator II, mounted."


"Liwa al-Quds commander Mohammad "The Engineer" al-Sa'eed."

I see there will also be a 1/72 T-14 Armata, as well as a T-35, a Ferdinand and a Panzer VI H.

Those "Bags" hanging off the side of the hull look similar to the ones I have seen on some pictures of the T-72B3 Model 2016

Cool pictures Matt and Vlad. I guess the Zvezda kit will be the only "in service" edition of the BMPT in kit form?

Not necessarily. It is not yet known what the "Zvezda" will do. Оn the photo was a prototype that was testing in Syria, then shown at the exhibition "Army-2017", and then used in the exercises "West-2017" together with the T-90M and T-80BVM. It may very well be that the "object 199" will go to service with some changes. For example, the serial version, which was supplied for the armed forces of Kazakhstan, can be taken as a basis. In any case, it's not long to wait, rumors are circulating that the serial version of BMPT will be shown on the Victory Day Parade 2018 on Red Square.

I'm looking forward to the T-34/85 and SU-100, Zvezda should use this to work other T-34 variants.

There's quite a lack of cheap, modern, and simple alternative to the Dragon and AFV Club kits. How the ICM and Academy T-34's turned out was a big missed opportunity.
