It was introduced on the T-64 IIRC but it was only the T-80 which it was in widespread use.covert_shores said:Yes gun fired missiles are normal for russian tanks since, well at least the 1980s (without looking it up)
That looks reasonable. Though i believe the gun is slightly longer than your calculation.AdamF said:I did some calculations from this picture, using 695cm for the length of the recovery vehicle.
Hull length of 864cm (734cm excluding overhangs)
Height of 168cm to hull roof and 263cm to turret roof
The gun is elevated at 9 degrees and the distance between the muzzle and turret ring is about 695cm. For comparison, 2A46M is 668cm long (including the room for recoil). So either this vehicle is equipped with 2A46M, or 2A82 uses the same barrel as 2A46, but with one-piece ammunition.
Video:New Russian tank T-14 “Armata” : A Documentary Film from Russian TV.
The most secret and the latest Russian military tank T-14 “Armata” was first shown to journalists at the site. The leading TV channel “Star” Alexei Egorov got the unique opportunity to see the behavior of the new off-road, sit inside the “Almaty was” to learn about the secrets of the armor of the tank, its engine, and the most important thing – to see firsthand how the T-14 fires!
wow. so Russian afganit also act as Iron Fist. Im very interested on the specification of the grenade and radar used.Grey Havoc said:https://sputniknews.com/military/20160922/1045580324/armata-armor-piercing-protection.html

It's a legit site.Anderman said:
Tank-net is fine and safe, but once in a while someone posts a malicious link in it (it's a forum, after all), and for some reason it's hard to get that warning removed.Foo Fighter said:My system will not allow access either, the site is flagged as dangerous.
Tank Net, apart from it's questionable bunker mentality is classed as a suspicious site because it is hosted on a server with a different URL to the virtual URL that Tank Net actually uses. This is a common feature of sites where one gets malicious software. The Tank Net folks are well aware of this problem but appear unwilling or unable to do anything about it. All you need to do is set an exception in your browser and you'll be passed through without question.lastdingo said:
Why not? We know the Russians have had 152mm nuclear artillery shells in the past and that they intend to field a version of the Koalitsya artillery piece on an Armata chassis. A new indirect fire nuclear round makes a lot more sense than a direct fire nuclear shell.flateric said:No, it doesn't make sense whatsoever.
from Mikhail Barabanov (CAST)I think I found the source of that nonsense. It is this 2 years old article https://rg.ru/2015/05/14/armata-site.html which tells us that Rosatom (Russian nuclear agency) is participating in the development of the new generation ammo for Armata. It does not say that it will be nuclear. As I understand Rosatom will help to develop a new generation of fuses for the shells which will somehow use the technology used in the nuclear warheads and will make the HE and HEAT shells more effective.
Rosatom institutes are also involved in design of Sukhoi SSJ100, Su-35 and Okhotnik UCAV. That doesn't mean they are nuclear-powered or involvement is related to tactical nukes carriage. Not everything that Sandia or Livermore labs do, has direct relationship to nukes.Some of the institutes (NII) involved in the research of the physics of the explosion (including, for example, the developers of HEAT), historically are part of the nuclear industry system.
