T-14 "Armata" went without a pilot


The promising Russian main battle tank T-14 (Object - 148) with an uninhabited tower based on the Armata universal tracked platform was tested in unmanned mode, i.e. his work was tested without a crew at all.


The tank underwent a similar test for the first time and as reported RIA News" source in the Russian military-industrial complex, the combat vehicle showed itself well during preliminary testing.

Experts also note that since the T-14 Armata went “without a pilot”, it has serious prospects for further robotization. This will fundamentally change the conduct of a real battle, because the tank is needed for direct contact with the enemy and support the advancing motorized rifle units.

According to the former head of the main armored directorate of the Ministry of Defense, Alexander Shevchenko, the uniqueness of the unmanned T-14 “Armata” lies in its open digital architecture, which creates a “reinforced concrete” basis for the robotics of armored vehicles. Despite this, the T-14 Armata will remain as easy to control and even conscripts will be able to control it.

We remind you that in 2018 the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract with Uralvagonzavod on the purchase of 132 T-14 Armata and BMP T-15 tanks (Object 149) on the basis of Armata. The contract must be completed by the end of 2021. At the same time, the first T-14 Armata should enter the troops by 2020. The cost of one such tank in serial production is approximately 250 million rubles.

It should be added that today the T-14 Armata is the only fourth-generation tank in the world.

    Now he needs a powerful self-destruction system!

      If the conscript of the tank manager will have the name Shevchenko, then yes. He will also send the car out of habit to his grandmother in the garden for apples or in the general store for lard and vodka.

        And what does this surname have to do with it?

          An "elegant" attempt to discriminate against a surname based on ethnicity.
          I read on the net, offhand, about one of Shevchenko.

          Alexander Evseevich Shevchenko - assistant platoon commander of the 21st Infantry Regiment of the 180th Infantry Division of the 27th Army of the 2nd Ukrainian Front, senior sergeant. Hero of the Soviet Union (1945).

          But Seryozha Tokarev is very similar to the Ukrainian provocateur.

    In the unmanned (remotely controlled) version, as well as in the robotic one (taking into account the modern miniaturization of the electronic element base), the "tank-concept" T-14 "asks" for a re-arrangement. yes
    Indeed, instead of an isolated compartment for the crew, it is possible to increase the mechanized ammunition depot or significantly reduce the silhouette of the tank, reducing the weight and the required engine power (which, with a less powerful and less gluttonous engine, will lead to a decrease in the volume of fuel and oil tanks protected by armor), and to increase patency cars! winked
    If the elements and algorithms of telecontrol (and, moreover, partial or full robotization) are reliably worked out, then, with the same “Armatovskiy” gun and ammunition, the same level of armor protection, a much smaller and lighter “tankless robot tank” can be created from the unified elements of the undercarriage and motor-transmission parts of the T-72 (T-90) tank, used and cheap in large-scale production, familiar to the personnel of the BT troops and reliable in operation, to which there are already spare parts in warehouses, which, along with with a decrease in the need for fuel, it will reduce the overall costs of the production and operation of such a "car tank".
    Then it will be possible to use even a 152-mm tank gun on it, which (along with the creation of robotic armored personnel carriers, armored refueling vehicles and armored vehicles for such tanks) will immediately make this Russian tank a very serious war instrument, such as a "long crowbar", significantly changing the overall tactics of battle! winked

      It is also necessary to add about the “Phasington amerocholuy” and “the maydown Bandera Nazis” - without them the comment is very very bland ... lol

      The T-34 began to be developed in the 30s, and entered the army closer to the end of the war ... but the main thing is to express a comment, right?

            You have what you need. lol With your mind, the question, of course, is interesting. laughing I see that you are not in a position to discuss the article. Well, then it's understandable, here the mind is needed, and not to discuss the commentators of the article.
  5. And I would also put the robot as Minister of Defense, and so did the Chief of the General Staff!
