Stiven appears to be posting from the Ukraine.

I have some sympathy for the notion than T-14 is being over hyped, but you need to provide some supporting evidence or something other than simply declaring it to be so.

Well, while there is no documentary evidence (as with the Kurganets-25 infantry fighting vehicle), although later it may appear:

Old thread about T-14, with outdated plans about built a T-14, but, also, with interesting information:
- "Levsha" and "Levsha-M" - experimwnts with ETC cannons
- Work with ETC variant of 2A82 cannon
- "Created new ammunition, "Vakuum-1"...", "new ammunition for 2A82 succesfully tested, in 2013, and "taken for supply" (Rus. "приняты на снабжение")
And other thread:
About rail guns for tanks, and - project "Tachanka-B" - "pilotless" variant of T-14.
Also, about perspectives:
IMG_20200420_030802.jpg
Concept of "electrical" tank, created by NIITransMash, with railgun (muzzle velocity - hypersonic, ammunition - uranium shells), electrical engine (for high speed and low noise), and electrical armour (shells nelt then hit). And, it's a tank on six big wheels.
And... Real experiments with "silent APC":
Heavy APC with hybrid engine, electrical transmission... Early variant of "electrical tank"? And, based on BTR-90 projected Sprut-K 125 mm AT gun (or, light wheeled tank), 152 mm gun, AA system, etc.

Which were never real plans but one talking head sounded them as wishful thinking and shotload of other talking heads catched them up without taking any context.

proposed option for placing a 155-millimeter gun in the tower” (Voyenno Promyshlennyy Kuryer, April 27). what the ...Whatever the origins and inspiration underlying Russia’s “tank of the future,” it seems set to face ongoing procurement issues due to spiraling costs and unspecified “technical issues.” or not

152mm, not 155mm. And it was an option since day one, 2A83 (and previously other 152mm cannons) was proposed as main armament for future MBT for decades, and was implemented in T-95.

Article is bad. Both factogical errors and mistranslations from russian (MBT-70 in reverse translation became MVT-70 ect).

I feel that the case for a 152mm turret mounted gun in any tank is yet to be made, imho it is a retrograde step. A robot perhaps but even then, not beneficial. How long do you expect to be able to engage the enemy for without having to rearm the vehicle? How do you intend to do that while in contact and what do you perform the task with? More specialised and probably paletised vehicles, also automated?

A 152 mm cannon and a module with a loading mechanism were made and were tested at the 195 site. Which was then closed. I would not be surprised that in the future a 130 mm intermediate-caliber gun may appear.

Not in russian service. Upgrade from 2A82 to 130mm will be quite miniscule.

130 mm gun... In 1970th created LP-36B smooth-bore and LP-36E rifled-bore guns. Also, in 1970-1971 projected 130 mm automatic gun (rifled?) with caseless cartridges.
