    On the website one can see high-resolution photos of the new Armata main battle tank, the Armata infantry fighting vehicle on the new heavy tracked vehicle platform, Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled artillery system, and the Kurganets-25 infantry fighting vehicle.

    Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the upcoming Victory Parade, marking the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Army's victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, will be the largest in Russia's recent history. Over 15,000 personnel and about 200 pieces of military hardware will be on display, including weaponry never before seen by the public.

    The Russian Defense Ministry has previously confirmed that it will roll out a new-generation Armata main battle tank with an unmanned remotely-controlled turret.

    This year's premieres include high-end armored personnel carriers, high-precision self-propelled artillery systems, as well as the famous Sukhoi Su-30 and Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets. The historical part of the march-by will feature the legendary T-34 battle tanks, the mainstay of the Red Army in the 1940s.
