ST. PETERSBURG, June 16. /TASS/. Military hardware based on the Armata combat platform is the cheapest among analogs offered by European and US competitors, CEO of Uralvagonzavod armor manufacturer Oleg Siyenko said on Thursday.
"Unfortunately, I can’t specify it [the price]. This is not my secret; this is the secret of the Defense Ministry. The only thing I can say is that this is today the cheapest armored vehicle, fi we take our potential competitors in Europe and America," the CEO said.
It was earlier reported that the price of tanks based on the Armata platform had been agreed with the Defense Ministry.
Armata is a heavy tracked standardized platform serving as the basis for developing the main battle tank, an infantry fighting vehicle, an armored personnel carrier and some other armored vehicles.
The Armata-based tank is expected to feature an inhabitable turret and its crew will sit in an isolated armored capsule. The serial production of new tanks may begin in 2018.
