would the T-72B3 count since it's still in Russian service? 

 

as for the PLA Type 99, it's either bronco or hobby boss.

M1A1 Abrams - Rye Field Models 5006 for a Desert Storm M1A1 or 5007 for A1/A2 complete with interior.

 

As for the Merkava Mk.IV I actually prefer the HobbyBoss kit although I perfectly understand that fixing the lower hull and the corresponding mine protection armor plate is not to everyone's liking.

I think the Meng M1A1 AIM kit(TS-032) is amazing.

 

Edit: Sorry for resurrecting a year dead thread....but I'm building this one now and the thing fits together beautifully, has a fully functional suspension with torsion bars and is incredibly accurate.

That was a T-80U not the UD.

 

I see Trumpeter just released a T-80UD though!
