Force20 Modern-Ultramodern-Alternative Worlds figures are noted as "heroic 20mm" and are a great fit next to Matt's Elhiem range - which many folks refer to as 1/72. This range has everything from modern day Tuareg insurgents to Dark-future characters to zombies. The Force20 historical range focused on the WWII era is noted as "true 20mm" and runs slightly smaller, similar to AB and others that seem to be commonly referred to 1/76 (although the difference is slight and in an army they mix-in quite well). Hope that helps.

This one is new to me, Friendship Models. Nice range of modern British in 20mm etc. Have been told the sculptor was Tony Boustead, so will fit right in with Under Fire etc.

Elhiem MIGHT be doing warsaw tank crews dismounted, though i'm not 100% sure. Other than that, i'm afraid not, apologies  :(

Have a look at the TQD WW2 soviet airborne from cpmodels. They have similar head gear & overalls, or use the tank crew figures for head-swaps.

the minis look like they would work great, if it where not for the weapons they carry .

3D printed vehicles and guns have come a long way in the two years, especially if using resin.
The following companies have a variety of stuff that can be ordered in 1/72 if not listed in that scale:

https://www.butlersprintedmodels.co.uk/
https://www.syborg3dprinting.co.uk/
https://battlefield3d.com/  (the best quality of the bunch)
https://www.gardenshedprinting.co.uk/historical-vehicles
https://www.paintandglue.co.uk/
https://thetankfactory.uk/

Battlefield 3D and Gardenshedprinting are also on Ebay.
Note all of these are one-man bands and can be slow to respond to email queries!
