Not sure which kit you have as a search for 05564 brings up their T-72BM kit , not a T-72 A. Couldn't find sprue shots for 05564 but some of their other kits with a mix of T-72B & T-90 parts include a turret base for the cast version as well as the welded version, could this be it ?

09546? https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10652825

It looks like the unused turret base may be intended for their T-72 B turrets as that same sprue has the clustered smoke grenade launcher mount used on the B turret.

Kit #1 has the turret base on sprue X, along with other parts, and the turret shell on sprue Y.

Kit #2 has a new turret with both pieces on sprue Z. It also includes sprue X for the other parts.
