However, the tank’s deliveries to potential buyers will begin only after all obligations regarding the delivery of Almaty to the Russian army have been fulfilled.
In June, Interfax, citing its own source, said that Armata had already received an export passport.
Recall that the Ministry of Defense until the end of 2021 should receive 132 T-14 tanks and BMP T-15 on the Armata platform.
