"Almaty" will enter the troops in the coming weeks


The promising Russian main battle tank T-14 has come a long way from the design plan to being embodied in metal and entering the troops.


On the sidelines of the Dubai Airshow 2019 air show, Rostec’s head Sergei Chemezov made a statement that has been awaited for so long by both the Russian military and all Russian citizens who are not indifferent to the army.

According to him, the preparation of production is currently being completed, a pilot batch of new Armata tanks has been manufactured, the delivery of which is expected in the armed forces of the Russian Federation in late 2019 - early 2020.

"Armata" is the first tank in the world that embodies the concept of "network-centric warfare", which involves increasing the combat capabilities of promising formations by achieving infocommunication superiority by combining combatants in a single network.

Under the conditions of such a war, it is supposed to use “Almaty” as a reconnaissance, target designation and fire adjustment vehicle for self-propelled guns, SAM and T-90 tanks from escorting its tactical level.

The T-14 is a continuation of the development of tanks with an uninhabited turret begun in Soviet times, and embodied all the best that a domestic school of tank building has.

    Two-sided, of course, the impression of this device. The idea, in principle, is probably not bad, but unlike most existing machines, this literally becomes a “piece of iron” when electronics fail. And there are more and more ways to specifically disable electronics. Probably, there it should somehow be protected, probably reserved, but it all develops so quickly that it is not known whether it will be possible to operate this equipment in a few years?
  2. I would like to soon!

    As tanks, Russia needs ships, especially the first rank. And there are enough tanks.
    Plus another question: is the infrastructure for servicing these "army Rolls Royces" ready?
    Yes, and how many of them will arrive - 10-15 pieces?
    Again sheer window dressing.

    The arrival of new technology in the troops, of course, pleases and inspires hope for the best!
    And yet, in my opinion, instead of the creative development and continuation, tested by time and wars, of the best traditions of the Soviet design school of tank building, as it would be in the T-95, for some reason the Ural tank builders (for commercial and someone else's personal reasons?) this "Armata" turned to a dead end - figuratively: monstrously exclusive and megazatratnogo German "tiger building" of the first half of the 40s of the last century ??! IMHO

    As if with this very noticeable on the battlefield, relatively "invulnerable" tank "network" center "based on" Almaty "it did not work out the same as with" radiated "command tanks, back in the Soviet-Finnish" winter war ", when the enemy, in priority order, with concentrated artillery fire immediately knocked out all our armored vehicles with a clearly visible antenna-handrail around the tower, thereby depriving the advancing tank units and parts of the Red Army of the then semblance of "network-centricity" in controlling the battle ?!
    Well, this concept is a “miracle tank” (by the way, why is it without ejected seats for all crew members, because you still have to leave a damaged car, and most likely, under intense enemy fire - you don’t sit in it, waiting until the enemy’s anti-tank equipment and the explosion of their own BK “chopped it up like a nut” ?!) ", they showed it at the parade -" proved to the "hostile" universal people that they were "mighty", and continued to build more advanced "classic" cars, focusing on ergonomics - improving the habitability of the tank and ease of action crew, increasing the power of installed weapons and SLAs, equipping all vehicles with the same "network-centric" information systems and sensors, working out their real interaction and complementing regular crews as part of units, units and formations in an environment close to combat, to open as much as possible at all levels and preempt possible "overlays" in application ??!

    And so, the presence of any, even the most advanced control systems, without confident mastery of them at the user level is like a dead poultice - in 1941 there were also new T-34s and KVs with tankers who did not have sufficient experience dealing with these advanced ones at that time tanks, and their tactically correct use in battle, in cooperation with other branches of the army, which led to their almost complete loss (many for technical reasons!) in the very first months of the war ?!
    As well as the presence of a huge number of tanks and the creation before the war of giant "network-centric" tank corps, oversaturated with tanks and unbalanced in composition, did not save the personnel of the Red Army from a crushing defeat in the very first days of the "Hitler-European" attack on our Soviet Union!
    In my cynical-pragmatic view (including as a tank officer), the funds that were spent on the creation and production of “Armata” could be used much more prudently and more intelligently to equip and enhance the combat readiness of the Russian Armed Forces BTV! IMHO

      could be much more prudent and more sensible to use

      Such phrases always begs ... but, for example? Where can this be directed so that one does not have to throw one Tiger / Abrams in armfuls of "classic" tanks? Maybe it’s time to get off the horse already, the concepts of the battlefield seem to be developing.

        That is, you do not have any own thoughts on the prudent use allocated on the BTV, a priori limited (in Russian, if by no means infinite, but very limited!) Means, but always "beg for help" .... for more examples to examples already (did you carefully read my post, which you so commented arrogantly ?! smile ), to chew you more and more ?! winked
        Well, which of us climbed a horse and doesn’t "climb", "asking for it" ?! smile
        That is precisely what the German, WWII-era, exclusively “tiger”, extremely costly spraying industry resources, the concept of the “battlefield” and our Soviet, the time of the “winter war”, the concept of the “battlefield” of isolated single “radial” (the forerunner of “network-centricity” on technical level of that time) of “tanks, now embodied in a purely“ armored “center of“ network-centricity ”, seems to me insufficiently substantiated (not in the production plan, not in the military - only in the commercial interest of the capitalist tank builders, with the help of the ambitious leaders of the State Academic Technical University, bursting hyperprofitable FOR YOURSELF "project" ??!) and mega-vulnerable ON THE FIELD OF BATTLE (modern-combined arms)!

          While Armat is a little, she will be the "decision-making center" at her unit level. Only who told you that when knocking out one element in the network, its functions are not transferred to other units? Information about the digital modernization of tanks already in service is not available to you on the network?

            In, all the same, you can independently think when you are not "asking for it" and not "on a horse" ?! wink
            All right, they have now written, and I tell you about the same taldych - you can easily do without these mega-expensive, almost exclusive, "single elements"! Which will inevitably be easily identified among other tanks, and, in the first place (a very striking, and literally, historical example, is the excellent Sherman "Firefly (Firefly)", I hope that you, even from the Web, know well where and why this front-line nickname for this modification of the mass American tank went ?! winked ) Knocked out by the enemy (as it was, at the dawn of "radio network-centricity", with our single "radial" commander tanks!)! yes

            If it is prudent, with good sense, to use the material and financial resources allocated to BTV (as well as the production and scientific capacities involved in this area), investing them in "digital modernization" and technical improvement of existing mass tanks (or, as they say, computer games - "other units"), having worked out reliable methods and practices for their application in the new "digital" quality, one can achieve a much greater effect than recklessly spend all these resources and capacities on production a priori limited and priority the exclusive series of hyper-knocked out by the opponent (in production and operation) and mega-visible, much more overall, super-duper "Armat"!

            PS I want you to understand that I’m not at all a scorched "retrograde" and (as an engineer and tank commander smile ) I welcome the new trends in technology and military art, if they are really justified, and not “shoved” for the fun of general narcissism (in a long time ago, General Maev’s interview on T-95 and Armata, it seems to me that everything was correctly described to him, with the mention of specific personalities - if interested, then the "Network" is available to you ?! smile ) and the commercial “budget cut” - to the detriment of the “digital” and other comprehensive modernization of the existing fleet of thousands of armored vehicles of the Russian Armed Forces that is really necessary (and more rational in the context of the accelerated preparation of the Third World War by the United States and NATO!)

            But it’s also necessary to prepare for “network-centricity” the most important thing - People-Warriors, including tank crews, both personnel and reservists - it is much easier and less costly to make massive tanks already in service with the RF Armed Forces!
            I hope that you clearly “chewed” and “put it in the beak” ?! winked
            Since I will not answer you anymore.

    And here is the proof that in the Russian Federation they still finish the Soviet backlog of the military-industrial complex:

    The T-14 is a continuation of the development of tanks with an uninhabited turret begun in Soviet times, and embodied all the best that a domestic school of tank building has.

    - Here was a beautiful Omsk tank "Black Eagle" (on seven ice rink platform) ...- Already operational copies were made ...- the tank ran, jumped, shot and was presented in a "real guise" in front of a whole group of experts .., both Russian .. and "import" ...
    - Everyone was simply delighted .. and the "import" experts ...- were so terrified that such armored vehicles would go into service with the Russian army ... -And this tank could go to our troops .., and for years now 15-20 could stand in the arsenal of the Russian army ... -But the enemies of Russia did everything to prevent this from happening ...
    - As for the expensive Almaty, it is completely incomprehensible ...- where it can be used ...
    - Now, if Martians attack Russia, then only in a battle with them ... -You can also use this Armata for filming in films about space wars or in similar blockbusters ... -And where more ???
    1. Say thanks to the different Albanians.

    Chemezov ... by chance, didn’t his mother buy apartments in Moscow for one billion rubles? That's the price of the tank, like a fighter. Managers, in a word.
    1. ..on the kitsch Chemez, and expropriate the hut!
  9. What kind of gun will it be? 125 or 150 mm?
