Rosatom State Corporation is working on a standard ammunition for the T-14 Armata tank.
- The projectile will be ready by the time the installation batch of tanks is delivered to the Russian Armed Forces at the end of 2021,-said Andrey Terlikov, general designer of the vehicle developer, the Ural Design Bureau of Transport Engineering, at the IDEX 2021 exhibition in Abu Dhabi. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.
- Ammunition is a separate topic. There are very high requirements for power and efficiency. Rosatom is the elite of the scientific and production complex of the Russian Federation. There is bound to be success here. The development of ammunition is synchronized with state tests, as a result, the tank will go to the troops with this ammunition, " Terlikov said.
The foreign premiere of "Armata"took place at IDEX. Uralvagonzavod also brought a new UBIM armored vehicle to Abu Dhabi.
Given the profile of Rosatom's activities, it is logical to assume that the ammunition in question is an armor - piercing sub-caliber projectile of increased power. Its core is made of extremely strong and heavy material. Depleted uranium is optimal.
