The construction of the Armata T-14 required the creation of the steel grade 44C-sv-Sh, due to which the armor of the combat vehicle will decrease by 15 percent and its weight will be reduced by hundreds of kilograms, which will provide additional advantages over foreign tanks, for example, the American M1 Abrams ( M1A2), writes Sina.
The Chinese publication notes that this bulletproof steel armor was developed by the Moscow Scientific Research Institute of Steel, and the use of additional armor reservation will further improve the characteristics of the Armata T-14 in front of the M1 Abrams (M1A2). Also, according to Sina, the capabilities of the T-14 Armata are enhanced by active (“Afganit”) and passive (“Malachite”) defense systems.
In October, the special representative of Uralvagonzavod (UVZ) for military-technical cooperation, Army General Alexei Maslov, stated that the crews of the T-14 Armata tanks would actually be "gamers."
In August, the Military-Industrial Courier reported that a number of weapon systems for the T-14 Armata tank require further testing and trial operation in the troops.
In July 2018, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that the Russian Armed Forces did not seek to massively purchase T-14 Armata tanks because of their high cost, preferring to increase the combat potential of existing military equipment due to its modernization.
Work on the Armata universal tracked platform was carried out in 2009-2015. The contract of the Ministry of Defense and UVZ provides for the delivery from the end of 2018 to the end of 2021 of 132 vehicles created on the basis of the Armata platform (T-14 tank, T-15 infantry fighting vehicle (BMP) and T-16 BREM).
