The T-15 HIFV is a tier 10 Tank Destroyer‏‎ 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 Armored Fighting Vehicles line.

Features[]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits.
  • Modern APS: grants protection against guided missile and other projectiles.
  • TB ATGM: guided high explosives.
  • Uninhabited modules: the uninhabited turret (battle module) received reduced damage.

Player Recommendations[]

Continuing the trend of highly armored mobile fire support, the T-15 HIFV is a worthy successor to the Terminator series of vehicles. With a similar layout of 4 ATGMs accompanying a 30mm autocannon, it plays like the Terminator. Useful as a brawler, flanker, and AFV/TD hunter, the T-15 is a versatile vehicle with heavy armor and devastating firepower. While not fast, the T-15 can keep pace with most teammate MBTs. In the later stages of a match, the T-15 can easily destroy low health targets with its ability to launch four ATGMs within a three-second timeframe, making it a deadly opponent.

Pros and Cons[]

Pros[]

  • Heavy front armor with excellent sloping and few weak spots
  • A nice autocannon, capable of shredding light armored vehicles in seconds
  • Rapid fire missiles, which can be upgraded to be fired two at a time (can deal heavy damage to hard targets)
  • Fair speed and acceleration for a heavy vehicle
  • ERA on the sides
  • Unmanned turret with great armor
  • Good APS
  • Smoke grenades

Cons[]

  • A HUGE silhouette making the T-15 an easy target
  • Sides are especially vulnerable due to the complete lack of slope and the huge area (has some ERA though)
  • Rear mounted turret makes overall control a bit weird and uncomfortable. Good for sidescraping but not much more.
  • Roof (the hood before the turret) is VERY vulnerable from above, even from obtuse angles

Upgrade Suggestions[]

Upgrading to the A-85-3A Diesel Engine will alleviate some of the sluggish acceleration, but its impact is generally low, with only a 0.21-second decrease in the 0-32km/h. Regardless, it does help and should be researched fairly early. The Spall Liner also reduces damage intake while brawling, improving survival in close range battles with enemy MBTs. While helpful, upgrading to the Improved Ammo Feeder is costly both in reputation and credits, however, with the recent update, a target Tracker has been added which makes you fire 2 ATGMs a once and adding 4 extra ATGMs(Glops only I think?) making it the MOST costly upgrade for the T-15. The best thing about it is that you can choose between the two, worse thing is you can't have them both enabled at the same.

Retrofit Suggestions[]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Telescopic Lenses

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[]

  • Commander: Rashid Al-Atassi, to improve ATGM reload time, view range, and camo rating
  • Driver: Off-Road Driving, Smooth Ride
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter

History[]

Class: Heavy Infantry Fighting Vehicle (Prototype)
Developed: 2010s (ongoing)
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: cca 5
Operators: Russia

The Armata vehicle family does not only consist of the T-14 Main Battle Tank. There are other variants planned or developed with the next best one being the T-15 Armata heavy IFV.

The T-15 is an extremely well-protected vehicle. Russian sources claim that its frontal armor is impervious to all contemporary western guided missiles (of up to and including 150mm caliber) and shells (of up to and including 120mm caliber). Such statements need to be taken with a grain of salt until proven, but in any case the protection of the T-15 is certainly on an excellent level. Layers of passive composite armor, the arrow shape of which was chosen to maximize its effectiveness, are further enhanced by cutting edge Malakhit explosive reactive armor and Afganit APS. The engine compartment, fuel tanks, ammunition storage and crew compartment are also separated from each other by armored internal plates. The vehicle is equipped with a Bumerang-BM unmanned turret, armed with one 30mm 2A42 cannon, a 7.62mm PKT machine gun and two Kornet missile launchers. One of the most interesting features of this module is its primary ability to engage flying targets, something the western IFVs are capable of only as an afterthought.

The Armata platform 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. 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.

Several sources point out that the T-15 is unlikely to become the standard replacement for all BMP-class vehicles in service; that role will be covered by the Kurganets AFV. Instead, the T-15 will be reserved for high-intensity combat and for elite Russian troops.
