MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Khalitov named the Armata T-14 tank, built by UVZ, as an example of the manufacturer’s efforts to do away with piloted military technology, promising to reduce its crew numbers from three to two.
"We will be able to show prototypes in 1.5 to 2 years. We are gradually moving away from crewed machines," Vyacheslav Khalitov said at a round table.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said earlier the tank has courted "serious potential buyers from Arab countries."
In May, Khalitov said that the tank could serve in the Russian Armed Forces until the end of the 21st century.
