The T-15 Armata is a Tier 10 progression Tank Destroyer under Marat Shishkin's dealership.

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.

The Armata platform is protected by composite armor, Generation 4 ERA and an unmanned turret. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. The unmanned turret takes reduced damage. The fourth generation ERA kit offers nearly total protection against all HEAT rounds or warheads, and excellent protection against kinetic rounds.
