The manufacturing tests of Russia’s newest Armata tank will be completed in 2016, Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Ground Forces, Col.-Gen. Oleg Salyukov, said on Friday. "Armata will undergo manufacturing tests. After that, a decision on operational trials and entry into service will be made," Salyukov said.


The T-14 Armata was unveiled for the first time to the public during the military parade in Moscow for the Victory Day, May 9, 2015.


"The manufacturing tests will be completed in 2016," he added.Armata is a heavy unified platform created for tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. The new-generation tank boasts an unmanned turret, fully digitalized control and an isolated armored capsule accommodating the crew. Armata’s main weapon is a 125 mm gun. In principle, the vehicle can be armed with a 152 mm gun, too
