The Armata is an interesting tank. No one is in the turret and loading is automated. It tool a long time for this to come but finally some armor engineer realized that a commander or loader or gunner in the turret had a low life expectancy. It also has secondary armament that is remotely controlled, a .50 machine gun with 300 rounds and a .30 machine gun with 1000 rounds.


The main gun is the 2A82 125 mm gun with plans for a 152mm main gun later. It is armed with reactive armor and an automated millimeter-wavelength radar to detect, track, and intercept incoming anti-tank munitions.


It features radar absorbing armor and its reasonably low weight (48 tons) and low profile should also provide protection.


It features three operators, a commander, gunner target operator and driver. The operators sit in a powerfully protected kill proof armored bubble located in the front .


The T-14 has a multi geared 2000 horsepower diesel engine that can achieve 90 kph movement.

Luckily it is so expensive (and not battle tested yet) that they can only build less then 20 a year, because of budget problems due to the low oil price.
