Wow these games look great, can you multiplay with T-72? I'm really interested in playing the German armour. I've also noticed some screenys of the new wwII tank game coming out, when is it due out?

Since you refer to German armour, I assume you mean Steel Beasts Pro, not T72 Balkans of Fire.
Multiplay is said to be a blast, but I can't judge that from own experience, since I never play online. However, not all included vehicles are fully controllable. 5 have 3D interiors, some more are fully controllable, some are playable from the outside only and with no direct gunnery control (AI takes care of that), and some are only managed by the AI.
US: M1A1, M2A2, M3A2, M113, M113MICLIC, M113 Engineer, HMMWV, FIST-V.
German: Leo1A5, Leo2A4, Leo2A5
Swedish: Strv-122 (Swedish variant that is close to German Leo2A6), CV9040B, CV9040C
Australian: Leo1AS (dual magnification sights for the gunner in day view, no thermals); ASLAV-25 (the Australian version of the LAV-25, with thermal view and the auxiliary sight for the 25mm Bushmaster); ASLAV-PC (personnel carrier version with a flex mount cal .50.); ASLAV Command (artillery response time bonus); ASLAV Support (fuel tanker). However, the Australian vehicles have (so far) no 3D interiors and are driven via the standard interface you got used to from SB1, they were packed in late and surprisingly, due to late arriving demands by the Australian army.
UGVs (unmanned ground vehicle drones)
Probably next upcoming crewable vehicle: Pizarro-series.
Later (free) add-ons will make either the T-72 or the T-80 playable, but the date is absolutely uncertain, and it has no priority for the developer (who is depending in the military customers, not the civilian game market)
Russian: T-72, T-80, BMP-1, BMP-2, BTR-80, BMD-2, BRDM-2 (with/without AT), Ural truck, Hind Mi-24.
US: HEMTT (Cargo and Fuel), M113 (Medic, TOW, Command, Observer),
HMMWV TOW, M901, MT-55 bridgelayer, LAV-25.
German: Jaguar ATM, Biber bridgelayer, Marder-1A3, Mercedes truck (2 versions).
Others: YPR-765, Piranha, ASLAV Medic (Australia)
I've also noticed some screenys of the new wwII tank game coming out, when is it due out?
Probably (hopefully) later this year. But don't take that as a guarantee.
