MOSCOW, (BM) – The Russian tank T-14 “Armata” (produced in “Uralvagonzavod”) is a unique development that will not have competitors in the next 10 years, learned BulgarianMilitary.com. This standpoint was expressed by the military expert, retired Col. Viktor Litovkin.
“This tank is definitely the best in the world because advanced technologies are used. There is no similar tank in any country in the world and it is unlikely that it will appear in the next 5-10 years,“ he stated. The expert said that a unique layout was used in the combat machine. There is an “uninhabited” dome in which weapons and guidance systems are located. The crew is in an armored capsule separated from the ammunition and engine compartment, and is also maximally protected in a battle.
“The entire control of the equipment, machine guns and projectiles is done by computers and surveillance systems that no one else in the world possesses. There is additional protection, passive and active. And the fact that the T-14 “Armata” can fire not only with projectiles, but also with anti-tank missiles has already become traditional,“ the source added.
Earlier, the experts of World Digital News have ranked the world’s best combat vehicles, where the T-14 “Armata”, produced in “Uralvagonzavod” in Nizhny Tagil, Sverdlovsk Oblast, is first. The second in the ranking is the French AMX-56”Leclerc” tank, the third – the German “Leopard”2 A7 +. The American “Abrams” is ranked fourth.
