Well, if you change the road wheel spacings, lengthen the hull, change the engine, change the transmission to an electromechanical transmission (just saying), change the seating arrangement, reduce the armor thickness to 2 cm, ..., then why do you say it uses a T-90 chassis?
Nothing else, thats why.
You are speculating on most of those changes btw, just wait until we see the uncovered vehicle.
There was that universal T-90 chassis:
Which had space for more crew in the hull. It is not exactly a hard solution. Same with armor.
Armata is well known to not be ready for Koalition yet.
The image you posted is not a T-90 chassis. I believe it was called Eh300. It has some commonality with T-90, for example, it is using T-90's road wheels. In reality the differences it has with a T-90 chassis is what I listed above, except for that of the electromechanical transmission.
A tank chassis is never suitable for an SP artillery system like Koalitsiya. A heavily modified tank chassis is a different matter.
Anyway, what I am saying is that the road wheel spacing in the latest pictures seem to be larger than those in the T-90; so the chassis can't be just a downarmored variant of a T-90 chassis.
