Russian Army Expects to Receive 500 T-14 Armata Tank per Year
According Sputnik Russian press agency, the tank’s builder, the Uralvagonzavod plant, can roll out around 500 T-14 Armata tanks each year. The tank will go through state trials in 2016, and it is expected that by 2020, over 2,300 tanks on the Armata platform will be supplied to the Russian military.

Reportedly, 20 units have already been manufactured and issued to troops for hands-on training. The exact characteristics and appearance of the platform remain classified, though this might soon change as the new vehicles might take part in the Victory Day Parade on Red Square, May 9 this year.

The new Armata armored tracked platform has reportedly combined and assimilated all the last decade’s major developments and innovations in battle vehicle design and construction.

The platform’s chief tank (T-14) sports an unmanned remotely controlled turret armed with a brand new 125 mm 2A82-1M smoothbore cannon. The Armata platform allegedly has a fully mechanized electric transmission, powered by a 1,200 HP diesel engine. For greater efficiency, maintenance and repair schedules have been extended. Within its blueprint, the Armata armored vehicle has the potential to evolve into a fully robotic battle vehicle.
