ALABINO (Moscow Region), August 14. /TASS/. The manufacturing tests of Russia’s newest Armata tank will be completed in 2016, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Ground Forces, Col.-Gen. Oleg Salyukov, said on Friday.
"Armata will undergo manufacturing tests. After that, a decision on operational trials and entry into service will be made," Salyukov said.
"The manufacturing tests will be completed in 2016," he added.
Armata is a heavy unified platform created for tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.
The new-generation tank boasts an unmanned turret, fully digitalized control and an isolated armored capsule accommodating the crew.
Armata’s main weapon is a 125 mm gun. In principle, the vehicle can be armed with a 152 mm gun, too.
