The  Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told TASS news agency that the serial production of Russia’s latest T-14 ‘Armata’ tank will begin in 2022.

“The [tank’s] state trials will come to a close next year. It will actively go into serial production from next year,” the minister said.

The T-14 tank based on the Armata platform, developed by Uralvagonzavod (a part of Rostec), was shown to the public for the first time at Red Square’s Victory Day Parade on 9 May 2015. The new combat vehicle features fully digitized equipment, an unmanned turret, and an isolated armored capsule for the crew.

Armata is a heavy tracked universal platform to carry various hardware, including T-14 tanks and T-15 infantry fighting vehicles. The  T-16 version is the armoured recovery vehicle version based on the Armata platform. In 2019, Russia formalized all the necessary documents for the export of Armata tanks.
