T-14 Armata became the largest modern tank in the world
A visual comparison of tanks around the world has appeared on the Web. Moreover, the Russian T-14 Armata turned out to be the largest modern combat vehicle.
The presented schematic images of the size of the tanks were published on the Twitter account of an engineer from Toronto (Canada) Michael Mikhailovich.
On the indicated visualization, the T-14 Armata is compared with other tanks: Type-99 (China), T-84BM Oplot (Ukraine), M1A2 Abrams (USA), Leclerc (France), Merkava ( Israel), "Leopard 2" (Germany). The K2 Black Panther tanks (South Korea), Type 10 (Japan), Challenger 2 (Great Britain) and several others did not participate in the study.
It is demonstrated that “Armata” surpasses all with whom it is compared in length of the case. For clarity, the hull length of this tank is 8732 mm and the height 2700 mm. At the same time, the overall characteristics of other tanks are also known.
The length / height of the tank hull is as follows: "Hold" - 7075 mm and 2285 mm; "Abrams" - 7925 mm and 2400 mm; Leclerc 6880 mm and 2953 mm; Merkava 7450 mm and 2660 mm; Leopard 2 - 7700 mm and 2790 mm. At the same time, the length with the forward gun of the Chinese Type 99 is 10920 mm, and the height is 2200 mm.
This information will help determine how the presented schemes correspond to reality. However, it should be noted that due to all kinds of equipment and weapons installed on the tank towers, their height can vary significantly.
