Even the Javelin missiles were not able to destroy the Russian armata T-14 tank, now some countries are interested in the tank

Russian arms company Rosoboronexport said it would export the most recent main battle tank, the T-14 Armata. One of the advantages of the T-14 Armata tank is an armored turret that can be operated unmanned and has a more sturdy hull.

Rosoboronexport CEO Alexander Mikheev at the "Army 2022" trade show said, there are about six countries that have expressed interest in the T-14 Armata tank. However, until now there is no official information on which countries are interested in the T-14 Armata tank.

It is known that the MBT T-14 Armata was officially introduced for the first time on May 7, 2015 during the May Victory Parade on Red Square in Moscow. The Russian Armata T-14 tank was designed with a completely new design with an unmanned and lightly armored turret and a heavy armored hull.

This new model with the main emphasis on maximizing survivability. In addition, according to the official data of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, the armor penetration achieved by the T-14 Armata should be almost twice that of other latest Russian MBT models currently in use, such as the T-72B3M, T-80BWM, or T-90M.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation signed the first contract for the serial supply of the MBT T-14 Armata and heavy infantry fighting vehicles based on its chassis during the International Military Technical Forum. A total of 132 vehicles of both types will be delivered, but to date, only about 20 pre-production vehicles are in service with the Russian army.

Data from the armyrecognition tank T-14 Armata was equipped with an unmanned turret and all crew were at the front of the hull. The new unmanned long-range turret T-14 is equipped with a new generation 125mm 2A82-1M smoothbore gun with an automatic loader and 32 rounds ready for use.

The main gun can also fire new laser missiles with a range from 7 to 12 km. The Russian T-14 tank will be able to fire new guided missiles, it is included in the ammunition payload of the prospective 152mm gun.

The T-14 Armata tank has secondary weapons in the form of a 57mm grenade launcher mounted on the left of the turret, and a 12.7 mm machine gun mounted on the right side. For the latest model of the T-14 Armata, the secondary armament consisted of one 12.7 mm Kord machine gun with 300 rounds of bullets and a 7.62 mm Pecheneg PKP or PKTM machine gun with 1000 rounds.

The Armata T-14 is divided into three compartments, a hull with three crews in front, an unmanned long-range control tower gun station in the middle, and a powerpack in the rear. There are three hatches at the front of the hull, with the driver's position on the left, the gunner in the middle, and the tank commander on the right.

The three crews of the tank consisted of the mechanic of the driver, the gunner and the commander seated in a special armored capsule, separated by an armored bulkhead of the automatic loader and a turret with the main armament mounted outside. The crew compartment will also be isolated from the motor compartment to improve survivability on the battlefield.

This design feature reduces the silhouette of the tank's posture and improves safety and survivability for the crew. The basic protection of the T-14 is based on a new steel armor and metal-ceramic plate STANAG 4569 Level 5.

The T-14 is designed to be resistant to prospective anti-tank guided missiles with high-explosive weights. Also equipped meteorological poles, satellite communications, GLONASS, datalinks, and radio communication antennas are installed on the roof of the turret.
