The Armata tank, "a source of major concern for Western armies" as the National Interest magazine said, features sophisticated weaponry, a remote control turret and outer armor that explodes on impact to prevent shells from reaching the crew inside.
The tank's interior features a capsule that keeps the crew isolated from ammunition and fuel, which can increase the chances for the crew's survival if the tank is hit.
A digital control system directs the tank's movement, tracks targets and activates its defense systems, freeing the crew from routine tasks so they can focus on key combat functions. Currently, the tank sports the standard 125-mm cannon, but, designers say, it could easily be outfitted with a much more powerful 152-mm cannon in the future.
As for the Koalitsiya-SV, a single self-propelled howitzer of its fortitude is worth an entire artillery battery, according to Major-General Alexander Dragovalovsky, deputy commander of Russia's Missile Troops and Artillery.
The 152mm self-propelled howitzer, with its maximum firepower, is designed to eliminate enemy armored units, infantry and fortifications. It’s outfitted with an autonomous power unit, crew amenities, a satellite communication network and secure data link systems.
Due to its pneumatic loader and microwave shell priming system, the Koalitsiya-SV is capable of firing up to 16 shells per minute. Its ammunition capacity is 50-70 shells, including precision-guided munitions linked to the GLONASS system, Russia's equivalent of the US-based GPS satellite network.
The Bumerang is an amphibious wheeled armored personnel carrier, due to enter service with the Russian Army in 2017. It moves at a speed of 100 kilometers per hour and its armament includes a remote weapon station fitted with a 7.62 mm or 12.7 mm machine gun or a 30 mm cannon. Protection comes from ceramic armor and technologies to prevent shell splinters.
The Bumerang is referred to as "a combat wheeled vehicle" because its other vehicle platform variations will fulfill different roles in addition to armored transport, including as an armored ambulance, command post vehicle, reconnaissance vehicle, anti-tank missile carrier, air defense missile launcher, fire support vehicle, and mortar carrier. Further versions could even include a light tank and a self-propelled gun.
The Tigr-M vehicles are mainly designed for reconnaissance and patrol purposes, as well as for protecting convoys and supporting army units. The vehicle is equipped with automatically regulated tire pressure, an automatic fire suppression system, a starting preheater and a self-recovery winch.
Main armament includes the 7.62mm Pecheneg and 12.7mm Cord machine guns, as well the 30mm Plamya (Flame) automatic mounted grenade launcher.
