its only been dead for 5 years
. anyway, the T-14 was always meant to be the T-95 lite, most specifications for the T-95, which are very ambitious even in 10-20 years time, are lowered for the T-14. the gun is obvious, they went from a monster 152 mm to a more manageable 125 mm. the revolutionary FCS, that prolly has all the spectrums of radiation
covered is reduced to sorta meh ir, visual, and radio. the armor is fcking insane, even compared to the T-14's, the frontal hull armor is significantly thicker along with the roof armor and there is even a thick cicular plate spanning the turret ring, not to mention they plan to add blocks of composite armor to the sides that fit flush to the suspension arm, and tracks, with an option to add the heavy skirts like we see on T-14 today. etc. etc. and from what we know the T-14 is slated to receive upgrades that will restore it to or even exceed in some ways the T-95 bar. almost metaphorical for Russia to regain its former strength as the SU.
btw, counted pixels and the volume (and consequently powder volume) of the Chinese propellant brass case is very, very similar to the Vacuum's with a ~460 mm long propellant charge. that is ofc. if the values for the vacuum round that ive used are correct or close enough(its just line drawing that i based my numbers, and even then i had to adjust said drawing for consistency).
