I am posting this even though I'm still waiting on a few 3D printed T-72B3 tanks and the new Battlefront T-72B box. I will make another comparison when they are finished.
Below are some comparison photos of various T-72 tanks in 15mm (1/100th scale). As a guide, the painted tank is a Battlefront T-72A, the resin and metal tank is a Khurasan T-72AV and the unpainted plastic is a Zvezda T-72B obr. 1989 (although the box shows an older T-72B).

The Khurasan T-72AV is a phenomenal kit! Most of the few complaints I had about the Khurasan T-64BV tanks do not apply to the T-72AV. If is just a little larger, which mean it scales better with the Battlefront tanks (see above photos). Also the 125mm cannon is molded into the mantlet which means it is more secure and less likely to be broken off. The commanders hatch can be glued open or shut. Also there is no trouble with the tracks, as the T-64BV's tracks were a little too long and stuck out too far (sorry, I will try to get a picture to show this on the 64). My only complaint is that they are currently sold out on Khurasan's store or I would have more!
