In 2013, the Russian Company Uralvagonzavod launched the design and development of the Russian Main Battle Tank MBT T-14 Armata, with the delivery of a first prototype in 2015. The first reports indicate that the new Armata could be based on the Russian main battle tank T-95 Object 195 and the project tank "Black Eagle" which was presented to the public at the Omsk defense exhibition in 1999. The Armata will have more firepower than the latest generation of main battle tank T-90. The Armata is fitted with a new unmanned remote weapon station turret. Russian experts believe that the appearance of the remotely controlled gun would eventually lead to the development of a fully robotic tank which could be deployed as part of a spearhead in the offensive. The T-14 Armata was unveiled for the first time to the public during the military parade in Moscow for the Victory Day, May 9, 2015. The Russia Defense Ministry said the field testing of the new MBT Armata started in 2014. The first deliveries of the tank to the Russian Armed Forces started in 2015. A total of 2,300 MBTs are expected to be supplied by 2020. The first T-14 MBTs on the basis of heavy tracked unified Armata platform will be delivered to the 1st Guards Tank Regiment of the Taman division. According to the Russian Main command of the Ground Forces, the 1st tank regiment of Taman division will be the first unit to be rearmed with new-generation Armata T-14. That will happen after 2020 when the new tank passes government acceptance tests and becomes operational. At present, the Regiment is armed with T-72B3.

The T-14 Armata is equipped with an unmanned turret and all the crew is located at the front of the hull. The new unmanned remote turret of Aramata T-14 is equipped with a new generation 125mm 2A82-1M smoothbore gun with an automatic loader and 32 rounds ready to use. The main gun can also fire a new laser-guided missile with a range from 7 to 12 km. The T-14 Armata carries a total of 45 rounds. According to some Russian sources, the T-14 Armata could be armed in the future with a new 152mm cannon. The first scale model of the Armata unveiled in July 2012 showed that the vehicle has a secondary weapon that could be a 57mm grenade launcher mounted on the left of the turret, and a machine gun 12.7 mm mounted on the right side. During the victory day parade 2015, Russia unveiled the new Armata and the main armament consisted only of the new 125mm gun with no additional weapons on the side of the turret. The second armament of the T-14 Armata includes one remote weapon station mounted on the top rear of the turret armed with one 7.62mm mm machine gun.</div>
