    Here's an updated version of the fan-made T-14 Armata model that I posted earlier in the thread, I think they renamed it the T-15 BMPT Very Happy :

    Most likely panoramic sights, the tarp most likely is giving an illusion of making the turret look much bigger than it probably really is. For example just look how high the panoramic sight sits sticking up vertically on top of the BMPT turret, combined with the twin 30mm cannons sticking out horizontally...if you placed a tarp over the BMPT turret, it would probably look much bigger than it actually is:




    Then again, this is just my humble opinion.

    Thank dog they haven't covered the T-50 like that when they unveiled it first time, you can't see anything! Hope they didn't left out protection for road wheels and tracks (same for Kurganets).

    That comperision is already bad.

    The wheels are bigger on Armata with 7 tracks and that comperision makes both chassis to seem equal in length.

    We will have to wait for 9th May, i guess they will parade T-14 along with T-90A's or Buratino or any vehicle that uses T-72/90 chassis.

    Why the skepticism? Cant you see with that image we're in fact engaging in the highest level of NATO forensic analysis, high level forensic tools such as photoshop, twitter/facebook analysis, and most importantly for information gathering...the game of 'telephone' are at our disposal... lol1 lol1 lol1

    Hmm. Armata looks like it might have a small bustle and auxiliary weapons like on the KBTM model. Look at the barrel shaped protrusion on the side of the turret, it's at the same angle as the main gun.
