The latest Russian T-14 Armata tank will demonstrate its combat capabilities during the next international exhibition of Russian Arms Expo in Nizhny Tagil in 2017, Deputy Director General of ‘Uralvagonzavod’ Alex Zharich said.
“We hope that in 2017 we will be able to demonstrate the combat capabilities of the Armata — in particular, the target shooting. The very appearance of the tank in the arena will attract a large number of guests,” Zharich told media.
Another novelty that will be a part of the next exhibition will be the night shows. First they were held only for the individual delegations, but in 2017 a demonstration of military equipment will be held at night for the delegations and accredited journalists at the end of the first or second day, the representative of Uralvagonzavod added.
This year’s RAE-2015 exhibition was attended by 48,000 guests. There were about 800 journalists present at the exhibition from around the world.
Earlier it was reported that the engine power for the Armata tank will be increased from 1.5 thousand to 1.8 thousand horsepower. Russia's cutting edge piece of military equipment would not remain static. Its designers said that the Armata could well become the world’s first unmanned tank.
