I was thinking of using this tank for near future sci-fi. Can anyone identify if it is modeled on a real tank or just fantasy?

I'd prefer not to use something that is in service now.

I think this is an ersatz Abrams

Looks more like a cross between a Leopard and a Challenger, to me. And that bustle rack has to go!

That's cool, looks like it would make a good near-future or generic modern tank.

Got a bunch of them off Ebay cheaply awhile back. Definitely in the 15mm range. Can't rotate the barrel…so if that bugs you expect to get out the cutting tools.

I agree with Jav.

Agreed on the rack. I was hoping for moderny MBT nothing specific but do they are perfect for me. Dimensions on eBay are spot on with a 1/100 Abrams. Just ordered a full company (14) of them for $14 USD inc shipping https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Green-Army-Tank-Cannon-Model-Toy-Military-Vehicles-Plastic-Toy-Soldiers/113249108473

It looks kinda like the Leclerc to me.

I think it's loosely based on the C1 Ariete.

Not far from a chinese T96/99.

I'd go with that. It has the look of a number of modern MBTs mixed together. But that big bustle rack on the back of the turret really pushes it over the top …

You can get photo-etched brass bustle racks for not too much. Might be worth investing in some to improve the appearance of the thing.

Could always fill in the rack with some plaster to extend the rear of the turret…
