The T-14 √îArmata√ï Main Battle Tank (MBT) made its public debut in May 2015, at a time of renewed tensions between Russia and the United States and its NATO allies. The appearance of the T-14 √îArmata√ï was for Western observers as much a revelation as the IS-3 heavy tank that made a shock appearance in the Victory Parade in Berlin in September 1945. After years of making do with updating Soviet era tanks, the T-14 √îArmata√ï is the first genuinely new post-Soviet Russian design. The T-14 is technically sophisticated and the first with a fully automated turret entirely devoid of crew as one of many new design features. However, the tank is however expensive to build and maintain compared to the T-90 and T-72B3 MBT types, and requires significant crew training compared with other tank types. The √îArmata√ï is a showpiece of military engineering, but the upgrade of earlier T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks is now being pursued in parallel as a more cost-effective solution for everyday needs. Whether the development T-14 √îArmata√ï will become a series, albeit limited production tank, or remain a technical showpiece has yet to be seen, but there is no doubt that it has made the impression it was intended to.
