“At the moment, those cars that have passed through Red Square have returned to industrial enterprises. This batch of vehicles will be delivered to the army in 2016, ”said Bochkarev.
According to him, "in the Red Square was not the whole batch of cars that will come to the army." “Several dozens of units of this equipment will be supplied to the troops,” he added.
“Tank“ Armata ”is capable of performing tasks both in hot climates and in arctic conditions. The T-14 developed and produced by Uralvagonzavod is the only tank of the third post-war generation in the world, ”noted Bochkarev.
“This is a fundamentally new and completely Russian development. The machine used unprecedented design solutions, in particular, the tower T-14 uninhabited. For the first time in the world, the crew is placed in an armored capsule, separated from the ammunition. This measure allows tankers to stay alive even if they hit the turret directly and the ammunition was ignited, ”he said.
