The head of Rostec emphasized that advanced technologies are used in Armata, all processes are automated as much as possible.
(...) the crew of the "Armata" does not need to aim precisely, it is only necessary to roughly aim the gun at the target. The electronics will do everything on its own - it will accurately determine the distance to the target and aim the weapon at it. That is, this machine uses elements of artificial intelligence that help the crew to fire.

At the same time, the unmanned version of the Armata tank will not go into series production, this vehicle was created only for testing unmanned technologies.
