Several prototypes of the Armata, to become Russia’s main battle tank, will be privately shown to the country’s leadership during an arms expo in September, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
The tank, expected to enter the military in 2015, will reportedly feature a remotely controlled gun and fully automated loading, as well as a separate crew compartment made from composite materials and protected by multilayered armor.
