    The Armata is a Russian prototype of a heavy tracked vehicle platform that will be used as a basis to build a next-generation main battle tank and a range of other combat vehicles.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Armata tank's main armament includes a 7.62mm remote-control machine gun and a 125mm smoothbore cannon. The tank is operated by a crew of three, housed in an armored capsule at the front.

    The tank is also equipped with active counter-mine defense and a suit of circular-view high resolution cameras. It can fire rounds while in motion and travels at a speed of up to 50 miles per hour.
