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 2S35 Koalitsiya-SV, Coalition-SV in English, is a self-propelled howitzer (SPH) intended to hit ground targets with high accuracy as the replacement for the 2S19 howitzers. It is fitted with a new 152mm or 155mm high pressure cannon with a maximum range of 70 kilometers firing precision-guided rounds. The Koalitsiya-SV also features automatic targeting and charge selection system reducing the vehicle's crew to four or three members only. The unmanned turret is fitted with pneumatic loader and microwave shell priming system as well as 50-70 shells allowing for a maximum rate fire of 16 rounds per minute. The artillery system is able to hit the same target simultaneously with multiple shells traveling along a different path. The early versions of 2S35 showcased in 2015 were mounted on T-90 tank chassis instead of the Armata platform.
