Fallout RIA Novosti

I have used RIA Novosti for years as it was the public "mouth-piece" for the Russian military for many years, as such it proved very useful to me in dealing with Russian military equipment. Due to a merger of media sources in Russia SPUTNIK News is now filling that role though the stories seem to have fewer details in them now. Anyway this is for anyone else that might've used the RIA source in the past. The new website is sputniknews.com and if you hurry in the defense section you'll find out when the ARMATA MBT will make it's first official public appearance.

Regards,
Pat

9 may 2015 in Victory Day will travel at the parade on Red Square Mosсow.
Tank "Armata" to get interesting, but expensive in price.

Maybe it will be similar to the prototype:

I have seen a number of different ideas on how this thing will look from your example to this.....




to this.......




which.......... gee....... looks an awful lot like THIS ( though I have a hard time believing Putin would OK a tank design that looks like a 30 year old Israeli tank )




I guess we'll find out in five months.......

Uninhabited turret, crew separately from ammunition and guns,
high degree of automation of the search targets and weapons control, traditionally small enough to transport by rail and so on.

Resemblance to the Israeli especially protected better, than with the world famous barn.

Fallout Re: RIA Novosti

As noted elsewhere the best we can do is mark our calendars for 9 May and hopefully we'll get our first look, providing of course we "see it" at all. I don't know how many remember me posting the "first look" of the T-95 (In the MBT Thread) a few years back, what we saw was a covered tank on a transporter. My wish list for the ARMATA is to see a reliable interior cutaway for the purpose of seeing if the crew will have access to the gun area. As noted the ARMATA is to have a fully automated turret , so you would understand my concerns here though, it would make sense to me that the crew as necessary would have an interior access hatch to the interior to take manual control if required. Can't remember but doesn't the MERKAVA IV have an armored crew compartment as well? Anyway that's my real world/game world concerns.

T-95
http://www.military-today.com/tanks/t95.htm

BLACK EAGLE (My first post in the MBT Thread I believe.)
http://www.military-today.com/tanks/t12_black_eagle.htm


My feeling in the ARMATA will be a hybrid of a new design with many attributes from the BLACK EAGLE. Even the T-95 was to have been a "lesser" tank then the BLACK EAGLE, the T-95 was designed to be a cheaper version of it. It is very important to remember the time frame of development of these two tanks as compared to the ARMATA, simply stated the economy has been much improved and Russia's ongoing commitment to modernize the military by 2020

To answer an earlier question, of curiosity the T-90AM is not listed in the variant section of ref. one. However as noted the T-90AM was Russian forces designated while the T-90MS was for export. However Russia has both as the T-90MS was an improved model over the T-90AM due to customer modifications. This is not the first time this has happened Mi-24 and T-50/PAF-FA also come to mind as posted else where. To these tanks the info will be in the Patch/or MBT Threads when I submitted them.
http://www.military-today.com/tanks/t90.htm
http://www.military-today.com/tanks/t90ms_tagil.htm


I will move this post into the MBT Thread at a later date.

Regards,
Pat

Default Re: RIA Novosti

here's the drawing from post 2 with a theoretical cut-away drawing..... the two seats in the rear make it even more like a Merkava although added troop carrying capacity is not normally mentioned when the tank is discussed..... we'll know more in just over 4 months. However, that drawing and cut-away show a front engine tank.... like the Merkava... but speculation is the tank will have a more traditional engine layout.... the thing is the people who really know... aren't talking....... only the ones who don't are ..like us
