Oleg Sienko, CEO of Uralvagonzavod, told reporters "Rossiyskaya Gazeta"
that in Nizhny Tagil a Training Center for professional crews for armored vehicles will be created on the basis of "Almaty". At the same time, Sienko noted that the plans of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation include recruiting for service in the latest Russian tank
and other armored vehicles on the Armata platform exclusively by professional military personnel. Soldiers serving in the conscription will not be involved in the operation of “Almaty”.
Of course, this is not a machine for conscripts; it is for professionals. A training center for professional crews for armored vehicles, which is being created on the basis of “Almaty”, will be established in Nizhny Tagil. In the future, it is planned to create a comprehensive training center here.
According to the director of Uralvagonzavod, not only Russian, but also foreign military personnel who are employed in the operation of military equipment manufactured by the enterprise will be trained and retrained at the Nizhny Tagil center.
The material notes that now experts are working to increase the power of the power plant of the newest tank. Now the engine power is about 1,5 thousand horsepower, but soon it will be brought to 1,8 thousand hp
