So many cool things for Russian Army.. but unfortunately too slow the acquisition of new armata units. Russia needs to have Armata already in big numbers in the many hundreds and in this year, because it face potential land wars in several fronts already.
Why? First Russia already have enough Excellent Tanks, T-90-A is shown his real capability, in Syria, where in first year of civil-terrorist group war, so many older Tanks, whit out few most important features, was easily lost, they have not proper R.A second they not have proper F.O.S(or Fire operation system) especially when we talk about modern gadgets for finding targets and see threat's and it is big question what kind of a munition they have, does it that was old models of a munition(which also was dearly cost Iraqi T-72 ) like fact old one piercing sub munition, made to the somewhere around 1975. cant be compare whit present armor piercing,where between those years and present day Russian army was have for sure three modernization of a munition, same story was whit cumulative one, like whit Bunker buster a munition, whit out two types of guided AT, and again guided Fortification buster rockets.
My point is that T-90-A actually is capable to fight against any Abrams, le'clerc, or Challenger or LEO2. Then their is T-80 UD which are also excellent tank, whit Night and Thermal vision, very good Protection , both tanks, by mobility is around 40% better then western counter part, while T-90-A have significantly lower top and globally is significant smaller target.
Second ARMAT already coming earlier then that was planed, but she must go thru "torture" of testing of every single mechanical assemble,, especially power train as a whole, and of course Testing of Hardware and Software in cockpit is also extremely important, But Russian is famous by one school of making military hardware, where first Upgrades coming almost right a way after first making series.There is some problems, whit the emergence of matching the frequency of vibration, engine, transmission and chassis thin where there is an undesirable effect of amplification when whole tank start to vibrate, of course that is happened only two times when driver go thru speed and R.P.M of engines.....That are is words of main constructor , where he said that util know, only serious problem which emerge during the tests until know, because such kind of vibration, can significantly shorten the proper working time of the whole transmission or other mechanical assemblies, but that's just the effect that they had not met before, and therefore did not do specific calculations. And he is emerge only on T-14, why because different weight distribution and Inner space on T-15(Barbaris) probably simply is made that such sync of small vibration(can't happened), which when rich full "harmony" amplified and become something not desirable and possible for Serial TANK.By his words on which that problem(first serial tranche) will be "cured" from that "childhood illness".
So Armata coming significantly before then that was planed, Barbaris T-15 in second serial tranche will get different turret whit gun of 57 mm, Kurganec will get same (variant for heavy fire close support for infantry and, Only problem will be how many cars per Year they can assemble , But UVZ is purposely for Armata program will made(if already isn't finished) brand new Assembly line, because they wish to separate places when they made Armata Program, and they other cars.Because, Armata will be changed, whit features and capability,every year and half, that is guaranteed, and it is a Russian school Tenko-strojenja, until she simply become Tank which use 99% of her true capability, like imagined modular concept of modern Tank. and So do not worry, warmongering statement of new Commander of NATO forces in EU, is nothing more then chip collecting of political points, nothing more, because he like every General in Pentagon knows, that full scale war whit Russia, only will bring Misery over whole Europe, and also US generals which do not wish to Dream American Dream. Knows that Russia have means and capability to deliver just enough nuclear heads on USA soil, and to change American way of life for next 1000 years. And no body of them is prepare to carry such burden. From other side, in Military always was exist enough high ranks Lunatics, which calculated whit billions of dead people. And in they crazy heads they somehow come to the result that America will be partial destroyed by nuke's, but Americans will have greatest chance . that right after 50-60 years become to rebuild old way of life. Like, until Others such is Russians will be practical fully destroyed, and then Americans can freely start to use wast natural resources of Russia...around which and reason why all this fuss and pressure on Russia is happened.
Sorry on little longer post.
