Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov said that during the Army 2017 expo, the ministry signed 23 contracts worth around $2.8 billion with defense manufacturers, many of them for weapons tested during the Syrian campaign.

The first T-14 Armata MBT will entered in service with the 1st Guards Tank Regiment of 2nd Guards Tamanskaya Motor Rifle Division, based in Moscow and part of Russia’s Western Military District.

The T-14 Armata MBT was presented for the first time to the public during the military parade for the Victory Day in May 2015.

The unmanned turret is the main distinguishing feature of the new tank. The crew is seated in an armored capsule in the front part of the tank which is to replace T-72B3 and T-90. The main armament of T-14 Armata is a 125-mm gun 2A82.

The T-14 is equipped with remote controlled combat module with 7.62-mm caliber machinegun PKTM. The module is linked with the independent sight of the tank commander. The T-14 turret carries a big number of various sensors and launchers which are believed to be included into the new reactive armor set.

The T-14 is equipped with reactive armor sets mounted on the upper part of the chassis and the turret. Module armor protects two thirds of the sides of the tank. The remaining one third of T-14 is protected by bar armor.
