I belive Koalistia is still on modified T90S platform, i see only 6 road wheels. But yeah CG is probably better positioned now compared to MSTA.
The current prototypes are on a modified T-90 platform which is confirmed in the videos. Apparently they chose it because they wanted an already tested platform although they plan to mount it on the Armata platform later on.....have to say it looks impressive...real beast
Probably multiple reasons. Testing turret and subsystems on already fairly proven platform and they probably did not have time to make another 10 or what was the number of Armata hulls. Yeah i am aware in future it will be on Armata hull. It looks quite good, i am actually alot more interested in its ammunition, some countries are nearing or even already fielded impressive howtizer ammunition, some reaching over 100km even. Naturally rocket assisted, gas generators and similar solutions.
