Status Report: Armata at parade rehearsal
recently, the T-14 and T-15 Armata tanks and BMP appeared on the Alabino polygon again during the Victory Day parade rehearsal. Their turrets were still covered by cloth but they should be uncovered on 9th of May. The Armata is the buzzword for all the tank enthusiasts lately as it is supposed to be more powerful than any western tank.
How much of that claim is the traditional Russian bravado and how much of it is the truth remains to be seen but there is no doubt that it will be a capable tank. Its price however is another matter entirely...
