    ARMATA T14 and T-15 weight 55 tons

    Some features have also been disclosed. For example, it is reported that the T-14, in addition to the 125-mm cannon, still has one PKTM machine gun.

    The overall dimensions of the car were also announced: its length is 10.8 m, width, 3.9 m, and height 3.3 m. But the most interesting is that for the first time the weight is 55 tons. Earlier, unofficial sources featured 48-49 tons.

    The T-15 weighs the same amount and can hold 12 servicemen. This year, the TBMP is presented with a modified uninhabited combat module, equipped with a 57-mm automatic cannon, a paired 7.62-mm machine gun and guided anti-tank Kornet missiles.

    The power output of both cars is 1500 hp. The maximum speed is 75-80 km / h. Power reserve - 500 km.

    Regular weight - 48 tons

    After additional applique armor - 55 tons

    It's also said the Armata series is able to be up armed/armored to the weight of 65-70 tons.

    Heavier more capable Armatas would be used in a high risk environment like cities with high rise buildings with multiple windows (Grozny). In a city environment with paved roads, there's less importance on ground pressure as paved roads can handle heavier vehicles where dirt, mud and snow can't.

    This puts it in the range of Abrams and more than Merkava

    Good to see they are going for flexibility

    You can see a small slot to the right of the gun on the version shoed at this years victory parade.

    Preliminary tests of 57-mm module for "Armata" will begin in 2019

    MOSCOW, July 3 - RIA News. Preliminary tests of the 57-mm remote-controlled combat module (DUBM) as part of the T-15 infantry combat vehicle on the Armat’s promising platform will begin in 2019, the annual report of the developer of this system, Uralvagonzavod Corporation, said on Wednesday.

    "Production of samples of the DUBM-57(Dagger) combat module is being completed, its 57-mm automatic guns have passed autonomous debugging tests with shooting. At the Army-2018 forum, the module was demonstrated as part of the Armata T-15 infantry fighting vehicle. The module is being prepared for preliminary tests scheduled for 2019, "the document says.

    At the Army-2018 forum, the Russian Ministry of Defense signed a contract for the purchase of 132 T-14 and T-15 combat vehicles on the Armata platform from Uralvagonzavod. The entire contract will be completed by the end of 2021, said after signing the document, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko.

    Well you have to remember that the Armata series includes Coalition with its massive turret and 152mm long range gun and all the 152mm shells and propellent charges... it was supposed to be 65 tons on its own... and then of course there will be armour upgrades over time to add armour as needed... NATO will introduce new guns and new missiles to defeat it, which will require further armour improvements and upgrades.

    The base 48 tons for an MBT is almost absurdly small. The Armata platform is designed for 65+ total weight in the same class as western MBTs. But as Hole has
    mentioned it can use extra weight on useful features instead of a hotel room. The T-14 can easily field a 152 mm gun, associated shells and more reactive armour.
    Some thought was put into the Armata design.

    The binocular system NSI-05B (glasses) has the same basic functions, and it can also be attached to the tanker's headset.

    [Official] Armata Discussion thread #5 - Page 5 1563387907_96

    Works NSI-05B is actually as a digital dashboard, providing a whole complex of information in 2D format with a resolution of 800x600 pixels. Operating temperatures from -50 to +60 centigrade. That is, it is quite suitable for arctic conditions, as well as conditions for conducting combat operations in a tropical climate. Power consumption - only 1 W, voltage up to 15 V.

    Should be especially useful for the Commander linked to a gunner-sight with a slaved RWS attached to it.
