The Russian Defense Ministry has officially signed with the Uralvagonzavod company, the purchase of the first batch of one hundred T-14 Army. No other details were branched It ignores both the delivery time that the total cost of the operation.
According to the grand plan of rearmament, which will end by 2020, the Russian ground forces should receive something like 2,300 Army systems. Every single T-14 tank should have a cost of 400 million rubles, a little less than $ 7.4 million.
The platform produced by Uralvagonzavod was officially presented on May 9 last year, on the occasion of the seventieth anniversary of Victory Day.
What has been called at home as 'the most powerful on the planet tank', is an MBT from 48 tons powered by a twelve-cylinder diesel engine from 1500 horses which gives it a top speed of 90 km / h with an autonomy of 500 km. The clean lines of the new tank, represent the main change compared to the Russian tradition.
The key feature of the new MBT is totally automated turret, equipped with a full suite of weapons systems. On the turret roof is placed a heavy machine gun 12.5 mm digitally controlled. The three crew members (but it can also go into battle with two) are placed in a sort of 'cap' in the armored hull front.
The T-14 is armed with a gun Smooth-bore 125 mm that can shoot high-powered ammunition including armor-piercing projectiles, guided missiles and all kinds of heavy Russian ammunition designed for MBT. According to Russian estimates, the 2A82 cannon, believed capable of hitting a target at 8 km, it gives a greater kinetic energy than the Rheinmetall from the Leopard-2 120mm. Also automated loading of 32 shots transported internally. The 2A82 cannon can fire up to twelve rounds per minute. It is noted that the Army system is designed as a modular universal combat platform that will be used as the basis for several combat vehicles. The main armament, for example. Some versions might fit the Koalitsiya SV-2S35, system of two 152 mm cannons capable of firing stacked sixteen rounds a minute. The Koalitsiya SV-2S35 has already been tested on an Army platform. If this device were confirmed, the project was officially canceled five years ago, the T-14 could be equipped with the most powerful cannons ever installed on a tank.
It seems clear, looking at the specs, that Russian designers have fully exploited the Israeli and American theories for armored forces, estremizzandole with the current technology of the new Russian philosophy. The T-14 is protected from active universal Afganit technology, a system that uses Doppler radar to detect incoming projectiles such as grenades and missiles. Detected the bullet, the defense launched an interceptor rocket to destroy the incoming body. According to the Russians, this would be the ultimate protection against the Apache helicopters. According to the US Army, instead, Afganit is able to detect only a specific and limited class of anti-tank grenades and threats.
The T-14 is equipped with a suite of high-resolution cameras that provide the players Army full awareness to 360 degrees. The T-14 is protected by the 44S-SV-SH armor designed by the Steel Scientific Research Institute. The particular angle and composition of the armor (probably this is an evolution of Kaktus) is estimated at 900 mm at the front. The armor is designed to operate at very low temperatures, a clear sign of the future and massive Russian presence in the Arctic regions.
The new tank, finally, incorporates elements seen in the Object 195 and Black Eagle projects. The T-95 (Object 195) would have been the fourth-generation Russian tank. Announced in 1995, it was considered obsolete compared at the time was to come into production. The General Staff Russia canceled the project in May of 2010, preferring to allocate the available resources to modernize T-90. Skills acquired with the T-95 were implemented in T-99.
The Black Eagle or Chyorny Oryol in Russian, is likely to remain a prototype although all the information relating to him are classified. We know that its frame is based on the T-80U, even if the hull is slightly longer. Its front armor is explosive reactive kind of new concept. His code name is Kaktus and is considered even more effective (especially for projectiles kinetic energy) of the reactive armor Kontakt-5 of third generation. The Black Eagle also has an active protection system Drozd-2, much more effective than the Arena system. The Black Eagle finally mounts a cannon 2A46 125mm smoothbore barrel with ATGM capability.
