Hi

What is the difference between the Syria T-72Av and the Trumpeter T-72A Mod 1985 MBT (#09548)?

Best regards,


Simply put, the T-72AV is the T-72A but with the reactive armor blocks installed, but with the Syrian tanks it's a little more complex. There was a discussion on the Syrian T-72's in the Russian armor forums with a link to a great site with pictures and information:

The T72A mod 85 has anti-radiations applique on the turret roof.
It seems that Syrians uses more T72A mod 79 (without it) , and for some with bricks on!

Hi all

Many thank for great help.
