Video of Russia’s Top-Secret Tank Leaked On The Internet

from the oops dept.

those pesky cell phones are everywhere.

The article makes this sound like a tank that will give the M1 a run for it's money.

And with the proposed fleet of planes that will ferry some 400 tanks anywhere in about 7 hours. well that's crazy.



Russia’s brand new T-14 Armata tank was captured as it was being transported by rail to a range outside Moscow, which will only be officially unveiled in the Victory Day parade on May 9.

A video allegedly showing the Russian Federation’s new T-14 Armata main battle tank appeared on the Internet Monday. License plates in the video indicate that the footage was shot on the move to in Sverdlovsk region in the Russian Urals, reports Russia Today.

Looks like the design was influenced by European tanks. No more cast turrets.

Is it just me or does the gun look small?

Lol that can't have enough armor to stop an Abrams.

Top secret because if suck factor?

Looks like an older T series.

You know lose 30 to 1 vs abrams.

Who cares honestly?

Russian tech tech is crap and has been for decades.

Yes very small.

Couldnt even wound a striker, not to mention a modern western MBT.

Lol that is 50s tech at best.

Honestly is that a T-72 with "square" armor?

The more I look at it the more familiar it seems.

I am old, that is not a good sign of modern tech.

I don't want to be shot with a gun made in the 50s either. But one thing I have learned over the years, "don't underestimate the russians"

Wait… tanks are still important?

With drones now carrying competent tank-buster ordinance… um… why is anyone still making tanks?

Hey they went with torsion bar instead of Christie suspension on their new one.
HOW long has it taken them to figure THAT little gem out?
Maybe their armore can ride better now,they'd have to for the stabe system anyway.

Why their tech vs the west tech has been dominated for over 2 decades of war.

The russian tech is useful to intimidate weak neighbors.

Nothing on the world stage.

Cruise missiles not drones.

The cruise missile is a doomed platform from its launch.

The drone is meant to be reused.

Hate to break it to you buddy, but the Abrams has been obsolete for ~22 or so years now

Ground is taken or held by infantry.. Infantry need armor..

At some point Drones will meet their match as America goes more and more smaller circuits and more and more computers..

Knock out the satellites.. And then drive your drone here..

The bottom section of the tank looks like an Abrahams, Thats a weird top section on it, The only purpose I see a design like that is so the entire top section moves like the Barrel on any other tank would normally move. Im probably wrong but thats what im seeing.

Mostly because Russia is still making anti aircraft missles.

just a quick rundown on the MBT specs.
Reminds me of the Israeli Merkava.


The new Armata armored tracked platform has reportedly combined and assimilated all the last decade’s major developments and innovations in battle vehicle design and construction.

The platform’s chief tank (T-14) sports an unmanned remotely controlled turret armed with a brand new 125 mm 2A82-1M smoothbore cannon. Its muzzle energy is greater than one of the world’s previously considered best cannons: the German Leopard-2 Rheinmetall 120 mm gun.

The 125 mm gun has 15-20 percent improved accuracy and its rolling fire angular dispersion has improved 1.7 times.





According to Russian media, the Armata tank might also come with a specially developed 152 mm gun, the most powerful ever cannon to be mounted on a main battle tank.

The tank’s turret will also carry a 30 mm sub-caliber ranging gun to deal with various targets, including low-flying aerial targets, such as attack planes and helicopters.

A 12.5 mm turret-mounted heavy machine gun is reportedly capable of taking out incoming projectiles, such as anti-tank missiles. It’s capable of neutralizing shells approaching at speeds of up to 3,000 meters per second.

The tank’s crew is securely enclosed in a multi-layer armored capsule separated from the ammunition container. The vehicle is fully computerized and only needs two servicemen to operate it. Each can also deploy the tank’s weapon systems.

The tank’s targeting is reportedly done with an active-phased array antenna and a large variety of other sensors.

Really? Whoever is writing the Russian's press releases for this thing has been reading too much Hammer's Slammers and Bolo books.

a reply to: SteveR

The PAK FA is rubbish compared to Western kit. Royal Navy T45 will be able to track and destroy them hundreds of miles away, that's not stealth, maybe against Georgia or Ukraine it is.

The M1 is best due to numbers and the Challenger 2 is best 1 on 1 and has most accurate gun on any tank. I would take either of these over ANY other tank if it was my life on the line.

And skepticoverlord is correct, tanks like this aren't relevant anymore.
