Russia started developing a new a highly versatile missile system on Armata tank chassis, that repoted military-informant.com.
On the basis of the chassis will be available with a universal launcher of “surface-to-surface” and “surface-to-air” missiles in special military transport containers.

The new missile system designed to engage single and group goals (including tanks, armored mechanical-engineering machines at frontline’s worksite, fortifications of various types, surface targets and low-speed flying vehicles) single or volley fire at ranges of up to 145 km.

The “Armata” Universal Combat Platform is a Russian prototype of an advanced next generation heavy military tracked vehicle platform. The Armata platform is the basis of the T-14, the T-15, a combat engineering vehicle, an armoured recovery vehicle, a heavy armoured personnel carrier, a tank support combat vehicle and several types of self-propelled artillery, including the 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV under the same codename based on the same chassis. It is also intended to serve as the basis for artillery, air defense, and NBC defense systems.

The Russians are looking for mobility and effectiveness. Two stones with one hand. Not sure about the STS considering the "escort out" unless exposing the tank which is so risky. A gun/TOW will be enough.
