The T-14 #Armata:
Exhibiting for the first time a complete change between Soviet / Russian designs, the T-14 Armata represents the new generation of Russian armor. One of the changes with respect to previous designs is the position of the commander, who instead of standing on the turret, operates from a position on the front of the helmet, in front of the turret, to the driver's right. The main armament is a new cannon totally different from the traditional one of the Russian / Soviet designs, the 2A46, the 2A82-1M, also of caliber 125 mm, and of smooth bore, that allows like its predecessor, the firing of missiles from the same one Without adaptation sets. The secondary armament consists of a Kord of 12.7 mm with a reserve of 300 cartridges for its antiaircraft defense, and one for the antipersonnel paper one of caliber 7.62 mm, and with a reserve of 1000 cartridges. In case of enemies of 'skin too thick', the suspension can withstand more weight and the design of the turret allows to install in the T-14 a more powerful gun: the 2A83, of 152 millimeters. One of its main characteristics is its turret and cannon directed by remote control. In fact, the intention is to be the basis for fully controlled tanks remotely.
In addition to the reactive shielding, the T-14 is equipped with an active protection system called Afghanit, which incorporates a millimeter-band radar that detects, traces and intercepts threats from both anti-tank missiles and hypersonic-type artillery shells , Kinetic penetrators and tandem charges. In addition, its crew is protected by an internal reinforced armor capsule1, which increases its chances of survival in the event of a catastrophic impact. ⬇Continue below⬇#armoured #vehicles #historiansunion
