MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian army will get combat equipment on three unified platforms in 2015, the Commander-in-Chief of the Ground Forces said.
“A program for the creation of heavy, medium and light brigades, which will be equipped with systems on the Armata, Kurganets-25 and Typhoon unified chassis,” Colonel-General Vladimir Chirkin said on Echo of Moscow Radio on Saturday. Armata is a heavy tracked platform on which it is possible to place any combat and fire unit, turning it into a tank or self-propelled artillery and anti-aircraft guns, said the commander in chief.
In addition, according to General Chirkin, prototypes of the so-called capsular armour plating will be developed in Russia in two-three years that will significantly improve the level of protection of the crews of combat vehicles of various types. “The crew will be in a separate capsule, equipped with shock absorbers and springs. This is the second level of security,” the commander said. From the capsule, the commander explained, the crew will be able to control all types of standard weapons, without touching them with the hands.
