Description: The Armata is a new family of tracked heavy armored vehicles being developed for the Russian Armed Forces by Uralvagonzavod Research and Production Corporation since 2010. The original aim of the Armata program was to develop a new generation main battle tank (MBT). The Russian Army concerns about the quality of the T-90 tanks and its intended successors the Black Eagle and T-95 prototypes led to the cancellation of the T-95 and prevented any more T-90A orders from the Russian Army. The Armata is a new design aimed at fixing the low quality concerns of Russian-made MBTs. The Russian Army also aimed the new program at delivering an entire family of tracked heavy armored vehicles. The Armata family propulsion system consists of a 1,500-hp diesel engine with a fully mechanized electric transmission with maintenance and repair schedules extended compared with existing heavy armored vehicle's propulsion systems. Between 2010 and 2015 the vehicle's main components were tested by the Uralvagonzavod and the military leading to the production of 20 prototypes in 2015 for troop's evaluation. The Armata family is expected to be ready for mass production by 2017 entering into active duty with the Russian Army soon after. The Armata heavy armored vehicle family are expected to be unveiled during the Victory Day Parade on Red Square, May 9, 2015 in Moscow.
The T-15A Armata Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) is intended as the replacement for the Russian Army's BMP-3 tracked armored vehicles. Its heavyweight armor may provide unprecedented protection for its crew for a Russian armored personnel carrier. The T-15A may be fitted with the AU-220M 57mm automatic cannon turret to provide overwhelming fire support once the troops roll off the armored vehicle. The T-15 was first spotted during the rehearsal of the Victory Day parade outside Moscow on March 28, 2015.
