As I understand it, the tail surface would not rotate around the roll axis but move up and down around the pitch axis in the horizontal plane.

OK, but at some point, the vertical tail has to do a 180 rotation in both axes. "Some turbulence to be expected"

Oh, that is cool!  8) Kinda unexpected to see such a (comparatively) one-off.

Wow - at what point does a T-72 stop being a T-72?

Pretty much! The wheels and front fenders are Russian-ish, but the rest looks new.

The PT-91M Pendekar and the PT-91 Twardy it was based upon have extensive changes from the T-72 though most of them are internal and thus would be visually different from a modelling perspective.  Perhaps the different ERA blocks (Polish design rather than Russian) plus external machine gun and the German tank tracks would be visually identifiable?

I did not know I wanted it until just now. Looking at the autocannon mounting point this might be usable on other models.

Now if only the Slovenian M-55 S could be made.

I have loved the look ever since I saw this image 20 odd years ago:

Agreed.  I have asked a few kit makers about it but no luck yet. 



There is a extremely rare AEF Designs conversion kit available but alas...

Trust me, I keep an eye on Ebay for the AEF conversion kit. Though I do seem to remember your comment on the quality.

Hopefully one day someone will listen and make an M-55 S

You and me both my friend.

Hopefully one day someone will listen and make an M-55 S

The day after I buy a rare resin one at an exorbitant price...
