The T-14 Armata is a Tier 10 Main Battle Tank originating from Russia, and is sold by Marat Shishkin. It can be unlocked with a tier 10 Unlock Token, and is the end of the Uralganzavod MBTs tree.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage
  • Modern APS : grants protection against guided missiles and other projectiles
  • Uninhabited modules: the uninhabited turret (battle module) receives reduced damage
  • Most APFSDSs : are very effective against ERA kits

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

The most powerful tier 10 MBT in AW, the T-14 Armata can overwhelm nearly any other vehicle at T10 with its devastating firepower and high rate of fire. The T-14's excellent mobility allows it to flank and keep up with the lighter vehicles on the team, making it a strong flanker, and its unmanned turret makes it very powerful in hull down position. While its armor is not the best at its tier, when used properly it is more than sufficient to block shots while tearing opponents apart with its high damage output.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent mobility
  • Devastating firepower
  • Turret takes reduced damage
  • Minimal frontal weakspots

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Weak side armor
  • Low damage on individual shots
  • Bad gun depression
  • Mediocre aim-time

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

With a tank all about the firepower, upgrading to the better ammunition, Improved Autoloader, Improved Gun Stabilizer, and other upgrades will allow for even more overwhelming firepower to be applied to the enemy. Upgrades such as Spall liner can help to alleviate the relatively low health pool, but should be secondary to upgrading the firepower of the T-14.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander - Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver - Spin to Win, Smooth Ride
  • Gunner - Marksman, Quick Draw

The T-14 Armata is an innovative 5th generation MBT built by Russia. The dynamic hull is highly modular, utilizing cutting edge composites and steel. The crew are housed entirely in the frontal hull, with the unmanned turret allowing a sleeker profile and heavier armor. ERA upon the turret roof, upper glacis, and frontal hull roof boosts HEAT protection, while side ceramic armor and cage protect the flanks of the MBT.

History[edit | edit source]

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.
