Quite unexpected information came about testing the latest Russian weapons in Syria. On the television channel "Russia 1", Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov announced information on the test application in the Syrian Arab Republic of the latest Russian tanks T-14 Armata.
The official made a short statement, confirming that the new generation of Russian tanks were indeed in Syria.
Yes, they were in Syria. Tanks were sent to this country in order to take into account all the nuances of their use in combat conditions.
According to the minister of the Russian government, such tests and tests in combat conditions will ultimately contribute to the formation of the final appearance of these military vehicles.
Manturov also announced the timing of the start of serial deliveries of T-14 Armata tanks to the Armed Forces of the country. The official of the federal cabinet said that the start of serial deliveries of new generation tanks to the RF Armed Forces is scheduled for 2021.
The Minister did not report on the exact circumstances of these tanks in Syria.
Recall that the T-14 Armata is the only tank in the world that belongs in its design to the new generation of armored vehicles.
It is important to note that before the country's Ministry of Defense did not report T-14 tests outside of Russia. Apparently, these trials and foreign partners "missed".
