BAKU, September 12. /ITAR-TASS/. A family of new combat vehicles based on the universal platform Armata will be displayed at a Victory Parade in 2015, Oleg Siyenko, General Director of the Uralvagonzavod (UVZ) research and production corporation, told ITAR-TASS in an exclusive interview at the ADEX-2014 international exhibition of armaments.
"All works are proceeding according to schedule. A whole family of armored vehicles based on the Armata platform will be displayed in a Victory Parade next year," Siyenko said.
The UVZ general director pointed out that there would be not only a main battle tank (MBT), but also other crawler-mounted combat vehicles. "Everything connected with the track layer is our business. An amored personnel carrier (APC) Kurganets is being developed by other enteprises," the UVZ chief said.
Siyenko said earlier work was being conducted at a priority pace. "Everything is proceeding in line with the contract. Work is being done ahead of schedule. We get ahead of all schedules," he said. The UVZ general director also pointed out that all Armata characteristics, which were inherent in the Defense Ministry's technical specifications, are being confirmed during tests.
The newest MBT Armata has been developed by UVZ specialists on the basis of a heavy-duty platform of the same name. The platform is to be used for the development of a main battle tank, infantry combat vehicle, a heavy APC, a tank support combat vehicle, an armored repair-and-evacuation vehicle, a chassis for self-propelled artillery mounts, etc. The MBT will have a 125mm gun, remote-controlled and fully digitalized. The crew will operate the gun from an isolated armored capsule.
