Enter T-14 Armata.

Officially, Russian Army started the combat use of newest tanks T-14 Armata against VSU positions. In the warm-up mode for now.

МОСКВА, 25 апр – РИА Новости. Вооруженные силы России начали применять новейшие танки Т-14 "Армата" для ведения огня по украинским позициям, сообщил РИА Новости информированный источник. "Российские войска начали применять новейшие танки "Армата" для ведения огня по украинским позициям. В прямых штурмовых действиях они пока не участвовали", - рассказал собеседник агентства.Он уточнил, что "танки Т-14 "Армата" в зоне СВО получили дополнительную защиту борта от противотанковых боеприпасов". Начиная с конца прошлого года экипажи Т-14 "Армата" проходили боевое слаживание на полигонах в одной из народных республик Донбасса, добавил источник. Впервые в боевых условиях танки "Армата" опробовали в Сирии. Основной танк Т-14 "Армата" разработан в Уральском конструкторском бюро транспортного машиностроения (входит в УВЗ). Особенность его компоновки — необитаемая башня, три члена экипажа находятся в изолированной бронекапсуле, расположенной в передней части корпуса. Танк имеет комбинированное многослойное бронирование, новую динамическую защиту "Малахит" и комплекс активной защиты "Афганит". Основное вооружение машины — 125-миллиметровая гладкоствольная пушка 2А82-1М, способная применять новые управляемые ракеты с дальностью восемь километров.
MOSCOW, April 25 - RIA Novosti. The Russian Armed Forces have begun using the latest T-14 Armata tanks to fire on Ukrainian positions, an informed source told RIA Novosti. "Russian troops have begun to use the latest Armata tanks to fire on Ukrainian positions. They have not yet participated in direct assault operations," the source said. He specified that "T-14 Armata tanks in the NVO zone received additional protection side from anti-tank ammunition". Since the end of last year, the crews of the T-14 "Armata" have undergone combat coordination at training grounds in one of the people's republics of Donbass, the source added. For the first time in combat conditions, Armata tanks were tested in Syria. The main tank T-14 "Armata" was developed at the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering (part of UVZ). The peculiarity of its layout is an uninhabited tower, three crew members are in an isolated armored capsule located in front of the hull. The tank has a combined multi-layer armor, a new dynamic protection "Malachite" and an active protection complex "Afganit". The main armament of the vehicle is a 125 mm 2A82-1M smoothbore gun capable of using new guided missiles with a range of eight kilometers.
Boy, military porn piles up with incredible speed as of lately. I wonder why, wink, wink;) I guess Russians prepare a warm welcome for German Leopards and British Challengers. Actually, RIA makes a slight mistake--2A82-1M has a range of 7 kilometers shooting ballistic munitions and 12 kilometers when using ATGMs, here (in Russian). Now recall all those rumors about Russians not being able to afford anything and T-14 being merely a show piece. Remember? 
Same was with SU-57, which is now being serially produced and used in air-to-air BVR combat with the score no Western fighter can even dream about. It is always the same in the West and it simply doesn't learn. In related news, now that it was officially confirmed, "military analyst" fanboys from You Tube and elsewhere should just stop their amateurish Clanciesque BS and retire. But they will not, because tomorrow is a field day for military porn masturbators. And as you know, all of them have graduate degrees in weapons design and military science... Nah, I am screwing with you))). But in the end Maverick and his indomitable F-14 are always at their service to alleviate a huge butthurt.
