Russian tankers nicknamed the newest tank T-14, calling it "Abramskaput", reports Look with reference to the military observer of Komsomolskaya Pravda, Viktor Barants.
“We already call this“ Armata ”differently -“ Abramskaput ””,
one of the crew members told the journalist.
The newspaper notes that earlier T-14 got the nickname "Masha". This is due to the fact that the voice information system of the tank speaks in a female voice.
Recall, recently, American observers set Armata as an example to the Abrams tank, pointing out more reliable protection of the Russian machine.
Last week, the head of the Defense Ministry’s Main Armored Directorate, Alexander Shevchenko, noted that “as soon as the Armat was created and displayed, the modernization of the German Leopards and the American Abrams began immediately.”
The newspaper reminds that the tests of the Russian T-14 tank will end in 2017, the Defense Ministry has already ordered the first batch of more than 100 machines from Uralvagonzavod.
