Despite the fact that Germany possesses the Leopard 2, one of the best battle tanks in the world, its armed forces lack powerful ammunition and have no chances against Russian tanks, according to the newspaper.
There is a constant race among countries to develop their military industrial capacity and improve their weapons as well as their protection, the article said. New types of weaponry are constantly filling the market, with Germany remaining behind its competitors in some areas.
Thus, Russia has been modernizing its tanks blazingly fast. For instance, T90 tanks introduced in the 1990-s have been modernized several times, and in 2017-2020 Russia is planning to introduce a new model called Armata.
The key characteristic of Armata is its unmanned remotely-controlled turret, with crew members seated in an armored capsule at the front of the tank's hull. It also has fully automated ammunition loading and computerized targeting systems.
