    Yeah the ukrainian augmented spartan cyborgs under the blessings of Bandera and the "heroi" disabled their cloaking devices and captured Putin and the KGB documents in them planning to invade entire europe and convert everyone to communism. The Sun, Daily Mail, Kyiv post and retired US generals say so.

    Yeah that ukr propaganda is so ridiculous that it was beyond my comprehension to assume that such "news" would be swallowed by some people like sperm by western LGBT brigades (greetings, no hate btw).

    Neverthless T-14 looks really great, though it's quite tall. If characteristics are as claimed by UVZ - then it's most lethal tank in the world. Can hardly wait for parade to see those candies.

    Lowdown on the New Army Tech to Be Unveiled on V-Day (MASSIVE SPOILERS)

    Sputnik offers a preview of the all-new Russian military tech to be unveiled on Red Square on Victory Day. Warning: Massive spoilers!

    In less than a month, Moscow is set to hold a massive military parade in honor of the 70th Anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War. For a variety of reasons, the parade is shaping up to be the grandest in recent memory, and certainly the greatest in Russia's post-Soviet history. A great deal of diplomatic, military and historical street cred is certainly riding on the event.

    Presently, the parade's vehicle and armor portion looks to be among the event's main highlights. Excitement and pride at home and nervous nail-biting anticipation abroad have been building since February, when Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Rogozin stated that this year's parade will feature all-new equipment presently being delivered to Russia's Armed Forces. Although defense officials have been tight-lipped about the new machines, to the point where they have been conducting practice runs of the parade with the tarps still on the vehicles, there’s plenty we do know about the new machines to be featured in the parade's mobile column. Ultimately, the parade will feature a total of seven vehicles never before seen on Red Square, plus over half-a-dozen vehicles deployed to the Russian Armed Forces over the last ten years.

    T-14




    The new T-14 Armata platform-based Main Battle Tank (Object 149) is looking to become the star of the show for the parade's mechanized portion. In development since 2009 at Uralvagonzavod, the tank, comparable to the latest Western analogues and in some measures superior, reportedly features an unmanned remotely controlled main turret, is armed with a brand new 125 mm smoothbore cannon, has a fully automatic loading system, a crew compartment separated from the ammunition container, and composite multilayered armor protection. Set to undergo state trials in 2016, Uralvagonzavod is expected to supply over 2,300 of the new tanks to the military by 2020.


    2S35 Koalitsiya-SV Self-Propelled Howitzer




    The all-new 2S35-SV Koalitsiya self-propelled howitzer, shaping up to be the successor to the 2S19 Msta-S (a late-1980s design also to be featured at the parade) is also based on the next-gen Armata platform. Little else is known about the vehicle. Experts have written about initial plan to create a double-cannon version of the machine, but there is evidence to suggest that the plans were later abandoned. What we do know is that the 152-mm and 155mm caliber howitzer is capable of hitting ground targets at a distance of up to 70 kilometers using precision-guided rounds. Sources indicate that the vehicle will feature automatic targeting and charge selection.

    BTR Bumergang APC




    The new Boomerang armoured personnel carrier (VPK-7829) is set to replace the BTR-82/A, a heavily modernized variant of the 1980s-designed BTR-80, which features improved armor, a new engine, night vision and advanced communications systems. Designers and military spokesmen have been tightlipped regarding the machine, although it is claimed that the new design will be "nothing like any of the modern APCs." The 8x8, front-engine design features ceramic armor technology, including anti-tank grenade and anti-mine protection, has a crew of three, and can be fitted with a 30 mm anti-materiel or armor-piercing cannon, a 7.62 mm or 12.7 mm machine gun. In addition to its role as a troop carrier, the multi-role vehicle will be capable of serving as an anti-tank missile carrier, an air defense missile launcher, an armored ambulance, a command post vehicle, a fire-support vehicle and a mortar carrier. Speaking to Russian military news hub Zvezda, military expert Ilya Kramnik explained that "the protection levels of the Boomerang APC will be much higher [than its predecessors]. This is ensured by the special shape of the vehicle's bottom and the internal layout, in particular, the suspension of crew seating toward the vehicle's ceiling."


    BMP Kurganets-25



    The Kurganets-25 BMP infantry fighting vehicle, another new APC based on the Armata platform, is set to replace a number of its BMP, BMD and MT-LB armored track platform predecessors. Developed from scratch, the new design, with a crew of three and room for up to 7 passengers, features improved crew compartment conditions, new Drozd-2 active protection, new countermeasures against guided anti-tank missile systems, and a slew of interchangeable components and subsystems enabling the tailoring of protection and armament with specific threats in mind. The vehicle features a new automated fire control system, and is armed with a 30-mm cannon, a coaxial 7.62-mm machine gun and the new Kornet-EM anti-tank guided missile launcher. Full scale production of the Kurganets-25 is set to begin in 2016. Like the Bumerang, the Kurganets will be capable of multiple roles in addition to its personnel carrying role.

    BTR-MD Rakushka

    The BTR-MD Rakushka multipurpose APC, designed especially for use as an air assault transporter for airborne forces, is based on the BDM-4 chassis, first introduced to the Russian military in 2004. The air-drop capable vehicle is fully amphibious, and features an aluminum armor hull, NBC protection and automatic fire suppression, along with new electronic control and navigation systems. Capable of carrying up to 13 persons, the vehicle is armed with a 7.62mm automated machine gun, along with a Tucha 81 mm smoke grenade launching system for screening protection.

    K-300P Bastion-P



    The mobile coastal defense missile system Bastion-P, developed by Russia's NPO Mashinostroenia along with Belarusian firm Tekhnosoyuzproekt, is capable of deploying the 300km ranged Yakhont anti-ship cruise missile in under five minutes. The defense platform is capable of destroying nearly all classes of ship, including carrier groups. Military expert Alexander Mozgovoi told Zvezda that the Yakhont cruise missiles "are supersonic, traveling at a speed of Mach 2.6. The highly maneuverable missile is capable of a complex flight path, capable of traveling to a height up to 15,000 feet, then swooping down to a height of 10-15 meters above sea level. The missile is difficult to detect against waves by radar. When the first rocket locks onto its target, it transmits information to others. In this way, the missiles agree on their targets among one another."

    Ural Typhoon U



    2015 will also mark the first appearance of the Ural Typhoon U multifunction mine resistant armored vehicle. The 6x6 armored truck, capable of resisting 14.5 mm armor piercing bullets and up to 8 kg of explosives, was designed in 2010, and went into production last year. The vehicle has a crew of 3 and is capable of carrying up to 16 passengers, and can be equipped for use as a command vehicle, for communications, engineering, radiation, chemical and biological recon, in addition to roles as a troop and supplies transport. The vehicle can be mounted with a 7.62 mm or 14.5 mm HMG.

    RS-24 Yars

    The RS-24 Yars MIRV-equipped intercontinental ballistic missile, first deployed in 2009, will show its face to the world for the first time at this year's parade, carried on the 16-wheeled Kamaz mobile transporter. Capable of carrying at least four and up to ten independently targetable warheads, the RS-24 Yars was developed as Russia's response to US plans to develop and deploy a missile shield in Europe.




    The Parade's Historical Significance

    Prior to moving on to the contemporary tech, the parade will be opened by a column of the legendary wartime T-34 tank, along with a unit of the fearsome Su-100 tank destroyer. Alongside the brand new tech listed above, most of the machines to be featured in this year's parade have been developed and deployed to the Russian armed forces within the last decade, including the GAZ-Tigr 4x4 infantry mobility vehicle (mounted for the first time with the Kornet D/EM antitank missile system), the Kamaz Typhoon multi-function mine resistant MRAP, the S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft system, the Patsir-S1 anti-air missile and artillery system, and the 9K720 Iskander short range ballistic missile system.


    A column of T-34 tanks, here seen participating in the 65th anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, 2010. The parade's historical portion reminds viewers of the historical origins of the Great Victory they are celebrating.

    Commenting on the importance of the armored column portion of the parade, military analyst Viktor Litovkin told Zvezda that "this will not just be a mobile column pass by. It will serve as the evidence that our defense industry and our army have made a breakthrough, proving that we are introducing new combat equipment, superior to its Western analogues. This parade will instill a sense of confidence in the fact that the victory bestowed upon us by our veterans –our fathers and grandfathers, will be defended."

    A bit of confusion in that article... thinking the armata is a tank, boomerang is an APC and Kurganets is a BMP/IFV.

    If you had to define them in a comparison with previous vehicles that would be accurate, but these new vehicles are not just new vehicles... they are vehicle families.

    Armata is a family of vehicles that include MBTs, IFVs, Artillery, APCs, etc etc all heavy vehicles, all tracked... some front engined (ie APC and IFV), and some rear engined (MBT).

    The Boomerang and Kurganets are also two families of vehicles that include MBTs, IFVs, Artillery, APCs... wheeled and tracked respectively they are both front engined vehicle families.

    A 70-member Indian Army contingent and Indian President is likely to attend May 9 Victory Day Parade. I think this has to taken as a personal initiative of PM Narendra Modi even though he has a lot of amerikan fanboys in his party and cabinet. He has even kept Indo-China relation on its merits and not yet allowed it to merge into the plans of the usual suspects. After all it was Chinese who welcomed him with open arms when he was the CM of Gujarat while the usual high moral fellas banned him for his role in Gujarat riots.  

    Indian military contingent to march at Moscow’s Red Square on May 9

    A 70-member marching contingent of the Grenadiers Regiment from the Indian Army will take part in 2015 Moscow Victory Day Parade at Red Square on 9 May, Ministry of Defence has announced. Raised in November 1779, the Grenadiers Regiment has won six Victoria Crosses before 1947, and three Param Vir Chakras since India’s independence.

    With more than 26 international leaders likely to attend, the 2015 Victory Day Parade is expected to be one of the biggest to be held in Russian history. As per Russian news agency TASS, President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, will also take part in the Moscow celebrations. Because of the recent annexation of Crimea from Ukraine by Russia, none of the Western leaders who attended in 2010 is expected to attend this year’s parade. German President Angela Merkel is however scheduled to visit Moscow on 10 May, a day after the Victory Day parade.
    Ignore the "annexation" part as almost all Indian newspapers daddy are vassals or just fanboys who love to swallow western media vomit and reproduce it.

    Your wife ain't wrong . Indian Media projects China as an adversary and they boast whenever India-US news pops up . Perfect bootlickers , perhaps .


    But there is an independent news source in India . It's a newspaper though name : The Hindu . http://www.thehindu.com/


    ps:- In their World news section they quote Assosciated Press ( AP ) articles . The biggest media house but if you take AP with grain of salt then no use . It's a nice source you must follow . Or you can also follow another newspaper : Times of India ( http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/ )

    Hmm, funny story mentioned @ Otvaga.

    In 1995 they had to use a reserve BMD-3 for the parade. Turned out the driver-mechanic of the reserve vehicle really wanted to be in the parade, so he sabotaged the first vehicle.

    I took a closer look on those. Very interesting and also surprisingly early rlease. The Armata's not fully what I've been expecting since I follow it's development but all in all those are pretty slick designs. I am mostly intrigued by the T-14 and the Bumerang. Especialy the latter one seems a revolutionary change in design compared to the old BTRs. Was about time they got replaced. The design instantly reveals it's amphibious as well. Side armor looks though. I wonder how much of mine resistant it is. Overall it seems comparable to all the other modern 8x8 models bearing stanag lvl 3-4 composite armour protection.

    I am very interested on seeing these fully revealed for more analysis. Especialy the T-14 turret.
