What is wrong is that this is not oficial Uralvagonzavod material and is therfor nothing but speculation
What differences would you suggest for the real thing then?
The purpose of moving the crew to the hull was to offer max protection for the crew.
Normally on a standard tank the heaviest armour is on the turret front, so by moving the crew to the front hull the heaviest armour on the vehicle becomes redundant and the whole vehicle can be made much lighter without putting the crew at more risk.
Only in computer games...
If you are not going to be sensible, why bother discussing this issue.
Take a look at any photo where you can see a T-90 and an Abrams or Leopard II tank and you will see rather clearly the size difference in the different tanks...
The T-14 Armata is no less of a target than the abmrams or leopard 2.
Actually that is not true because the frontal area of the Armata is tiny because it does not really include the turret.
With an Abrams or Leopard any penetration of the hull or turret can kill crew.
Let me guess the next thing you will say is that the BT-7 was better than the T-34.
The T-34 was easily the most mobile tank in its class during the war with the exception of the paper thin US tank destroyers... vehicles that would have been horribly vulnerable on the eastern front to even anti tank rifles.
Maybe becuase it is a self propelled long range artillery vehicle that is never supposed to go near the front line.
It will be operating with an armata division.... it will operate where they operate... and where exactly is the front line in a modern war?
Do the Javelin operators know where the front line is?
There is already tested Sprut one and will be used with high probability - both risk and cost factor.
For the same reason they didn't use the T-90 turret for the Armata... the Sprut turret, like the T-90 turret are designed for manned turret vehicles... the purpose of the new vehicles is to separate ammo and fuel from crew and troops to increase safety.
The redesign from the Sprut to Kurganets will be more than from Armata to Kurganets... the 30mm cannon turret is shared between the platforms... why not all the turrets and all the weapons/sensor suites?
No they will make a lightwieght 125mm unmanned turret for the Boomerang, Kurg and maybe eve for a more modern Sprut variant.
The Sprut version needs a two man crew and will be different... they have already developed a turret for the Armata... why reinvent the wheel...
Also there is no way in hell that the Sprut SD's turret basket and underfloor autoloader would fit in the Boomerangs hull.
the boomerangs hull is huge... and there would be no troops in the back... there is tons of space for turret basket and a long recoil gun and extra ammo in the rear...
