History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 2010s (ongoing)
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: cca 20
Operators: Russia

The T-14 Armata is the newest addition to the long line of Russian Main Battle Tanks, bearing the name of the Armata universal platform that it's based upon. The platform itself was developed in the early 2010s using the tank-building experience carefully gained by Uralvagonzavod over the decades since the Second World War. It boasts a number of significant technological upgrades, not the least of which being an unmanned turret fitted with an automatically loaded long 125mm smoothbore cannon firing next-gen ammunition, unique ERA set and an armored crew compartment. It was first seen during the 2015 Moscow Victory Day Parade, and the army started testing this vehicle since September, 2016.

The Armata caused quite a stir with its appearance, being the first truly original armored platform in decades and the first one not having its roots in one of the Soviet era MBTs. In 2015, Russia announced there would be thousands of Armatas in service by 2020, which sparked a development frenzy both in the west and in China, as all potential opponents sought the means to defeat this upcoming super-tank.

Unfortunately, the Armata program was plagued by serious issues, ranging from the need to import a number of Armata's essential components to the lack of a production-ready engine (the producer of the Chayka engine that was intended for this platform effectively went bankrupt). The worst problem, however, was the lack of a proper assembly line. By early 2020, all existing Armata prototypes were more or less hand-crafted with the construction facilities, by far the most expensive part of tank development, hopelessly behind schedule. The first Armatas are currently scheduled to enter real service in 2021, although this deadline is likely to see even more extensions.

The Armata 152 is a version of the T-14 Armata, armed with larger 152mm cannon. One of the upgrades considered for the T-14 Armata was the increase of its caliber to 152mm, which is why the vehicle has a larger turret than it actually needs for its 125mm gun. The 2A83 smoothbore is a behemoth of a cannon, designed in the last days of the Soviet empire for the next generation of super-tanks. It's massive, heavy and quite costly to produce, but, most importantly, it was never truly needed to deal with the Western MBTs since the standard 125mm guns were (and still are) up to the task. That is why it never found its way on any Russian MBTs.
