Armata Video

Sputnik International has posted an article about a video showing the new Russian T-14 Armata MBT being driven and the main gun fired.  According to the article, in early March 2016, Sergey Chemezov, head of the Russian state corporation Rostec, confirmed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that the T-14 is already being mass produced.

It seems the video we had originally linked to has been pulled from youtube due to copyright issues.  Here is a different, relatively recent Armata videos.

T-14 Armata in the news

The new Russian T-14 Armata continues to get media attention since it’s first public appearance this past spring.  A new Russian language TV show about the Armata has been posted on youtube, Unfortunately there are no English language subtitles available but those interested in this vehicle will still find the footage worth watching.  This video shows the interior of the production facility where the T-14 is made as well as footage of the interior of the crew compartment.  Some nice images of the Armata powerpack are included as well.


Also in the news lately, the magazine ‘The National Interest” has run a couple articles comparing the Armata to it’s Western counterparts.  Frankly, we are a bit sceptical of some of the claims made in these articles since so little concrete information is known concerning the capabilities and stats of the T-14.  Still, we thought these articles might prove interesting for our readers.  Article links below.
