Photos of Armata factory under construction from 6 months ago. It's almost completed now.
A whole new factory how many Armatas are they going to be making?
Also there are only a few hundred T-90As so are they going to be making T-90AM aswell?
Don't know really, I just found pics.
But if I had to guess I would say that they will be building plenty. It's not just T-14 MBT but also T-15 IFV and T-16.
And then you have Koalitsia SPG that will be using same chassis as Armata and quite a few other vehicles down the road using the same thing.
Add to that the fact that they plan to use Armatas for at least next half a century and new factory makes a lot of sense. Old one is definitely getting long in the tooth. As for T-90s they will probably keep building them in current factory, it will be hot export item for quite some time.
