Training footage of tankers on the T-14 "Armata" may indicate plans to use them in the SVO


After the announcement of partial mobilization in Russia, a variety of videos about the training of the Russian army began to appear on the Web with greater frequency. For example, eyewitnesses published footage of tankers training on the T-14 Armata, which may indicate the plans of the military command to use the latest tanks during the NWO in Ukraine.


It should be noted that reliable evidence of the use of these MBTs with an uninhabited tower in the zone of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory has not yet been received. However, now there is a chance to see the T-14 "Armata" with active protection systems (KAZ) in real combat, and at the same time test them.

In the presented video, a heavy tracked combat vehicle moves around the territory of the training center. The video itself was filmed by Russian servicemen watching the movement of the "stealth tank". Clothing and surroundings indicate that the recording was made in autumn.


We remind you that the development of the T-14 "Armata" began in 2009, when Anatoly Serdyukov was the head of the Ministry of Defense, and in 2015 the tank was first shown to the public at the Victory Parade in Moscow (a pre-production batch of 20 tanks was produced). In the same 2015, the director of Uralvagonzavod, Oleg Sienko, said that the company received an order for the production of 2300 copies of the T-14 Armata until 2020, but in the event of a reduction in the military budget of the Russian Federation, the plan could be adjusted until 2025.

At the end of July 2018, Deputy Prime Minister for Defense Industry Yuri Borisov said that the promising Russian T-14 Armata tank was "too expensive for bulk purchases." In the second half of August 2018, speaking at the Army-2018 forum, Deputy Defense Minister Aleksey Krivoruchko said that the department had signed a contract for an initial batch of 132 T-14 and T-15 units (infantry fighting vehicles with tank armor and KAZ) on the platform "Armata", and the first 9 will go to the troops in 2018, and the entire contract will be completed before the end of 2021.

But the state tests of "Armata" began only in 2019, and in 2020 it became known that by 2027 they plan to supply only 500 units to the troops. A year later, in February 2021, Andrei Terlikov, general designer of the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering (part of Uralvagonzavod), announced that serial deliveries of T-14s to Russian troops would begin in 2022.

State tests are underway, we expect them to be completed in the next year or two. Until the end of 2021, under one of the contracts, it is planned to supply an initial batch of machines. From 2022, we will reach stable serial deliveries

Terlikov clarified then.

It should be noted that the regular ammunition for the T-14 Armata of the Rosatom enterprises should have been prepared by the end of 2021. In addition, Uralvagonzavod is discussing with the Russian Ministry of Defense the issue of reducing production costs. Thus, today it is not known exactly how many units of the T-14 "Armata" the RF Armed Forces have.

    As Israeli expert Yakov Kedmi stated, Russia does not properly use one of its main trump cards - tanks.
    Throwing them into battle separately, in small groups.
    Therefore ... If the approach and concept of conducting SVO does not change, no T-14, no "miracle weapon", will change the situation.

      Tanks are thrown incorrectly not only into battle, sometimes they are thrown without a fight

        Moreover, "elite" and in fact shamefully courtier, famous for being inflexible in the Second World War - Kantemirovskaya ...
        I would take it, and scatter its drugs in other parts, and recruit new ones, so that the spirit would not be left with the habit of running ...

        "Yes, there were people in our time,
        Bogatyrs, not you ...
        "

        P. S. That's interesting yes , will they dare to allow the participation of "Kantemirovskaya" at the next Victory Parade?
        Otherwise, what "titles" acquired in the NWO will the announcer have to voice?

          The problem is that bloody battles are going on and new, better tanks are needed like air on the fronts, because our soldiers are dying, and here, as in peacetime, rides around the training grounds, and the terms stretched for years for the supply of T-14. So in wartime, the terms are shortened at times, the volumes of issues increase many times. It looks like the high command is not in the trenches, they have nothing to worry about, perhaps because both the deadlines and the "kickbacks" are the same ...

      The film "Best in Hell" was posted on YouTube. The first film of its kind made after the start of the NWO.

    I suppose so 20 pieces are left, because mass production was never launched

    Of course, you need to use the latest tanks on the battlefield, but only 20 pieces are just ridiculous and will not change anything.

    Fick knows what was really there, but I very much doubt that the crews just abandoned the equipment.
    Riding in a tank is stupidly safer. Yes, and he can give normal speed.

    Perhaps there was either no fuel, or technical problems - our auto industry has long become a byword.
    So why the hell will military equipment be less brittle?

    ZY: And what, by the way, were the "court" troops supposed to do? It would be heroic to stay in the cauldron, given that the ammunition supply there apparently was for a very short time - are all the warehouses in the rear?
    Well, they would stay. What's next? After a few days of fighting, shells / fuel would have run out and that's it. We've arrived.

    Well, what did they do there at all - the question is already up to the front command.

      In order to throw it for a reason, special charges are installed on the equipment in certain places - bang and run ... (yes, at least a couple of grenades in the tower and mto) And in this case it turns out "just like that"

        There are no charges there, and blowing up a b / c grenade is certain death, a demoman.

      A broken "guska", is this a reason to abandon the T-90 of the latest modification, without even trying to "shod" it, or simply undermine it so that such a gift would not become the subject of study at the Aberdeen Proving Ground?

      There are directly opposite examples in the NWO, when our infantry fighting vehicle (DNR), which was blown up by a mine near enemy positions, was secretly repaired by the surviving crew for 3 nights under the nose of the enemy and then taken to their own, in front of the crazed dill.

      And they, after all, thought everything - the khan to the crew ... And they, not only survived, but they did not surrender and saved the car.

      In other matters, our crew was already considered dead.

      And what about throwing a grenade into the tower when leaving the tank, or they were afraid that they would be heard when these "guardsmen" ran away from the tank ...

    Based on their experience, they can calmly say nothing about anything ...

    Yes, they would leave 20 pieces for parades, that would be enough. You look at the budget, they would have cut the games and held more parades.

    And to destroy the abandoned equipment, was there not enough courage? How to report to the authorities that with your own hands ....? So, at least there is evidence that they did not put their hands on the destruction of Russian military equipment.

    The T-90s have already been handed over to Ukrainian partners in working order near Liman, and now they have decided to sell the T-14s to Armata. Now, if you put Shoigu and Gerasimov in it and don’t forget the driver, then maybe he will fight

    Well, let's give Armata to Ukrainians already. New. in cellophane. Fortunately, the richest experience of parquet and ballet divisions ALREADY exists.
