MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Russia’s 2018-2027 state program for armaments provides for the mass-produced supplies of Armata tanks along with frontline and long-range aviation systems, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on the Rossiya-24 television news channel on Tuesday.
"What makes the 2018-2027 program for armaments so special is the conversion of the experimental products still in the testing phase into mass production. This applies to the Armata, the T-14 tank, the frontline aviation system, the new generation long-range aviation system and many other items," he said.
"This lays the basis for transitioning to a new, sixth technological order," Rogozin added.
The Armata is a heavy unified tracked chassis to be used as a basis for a new main battle tank, a mechanized infantry combat vehicle, and armored personnel carrier and a number of other vehicles. The T-14 tank created on the Armata platform was publicly displayed for the first time during the V-Day Parade in Moscow’s Red Square in 2015.
This dramatically new combat vehicle has fully computerized equipment, an unmanned turret, and an isolated armor capsule for the crew.
The sixth technological revolution is a term applied to the total advances in science and engineering. Its main branches are nano-and biotechnologies, nano-power production, molecular and cell technologies, the use of stem cells, tissue engineering, robotics, artificial intelligence, and materials with targeted properties.
