    GLORIOUS T-14 ARMATA PICTURES.

    It is Shipunov's conception of "Ideal" weapon - so called "smart bullet", in reality a beam riding small missile with not CE, but high speed kinetic warhead (along the round). Designed for use by a single trooper or as add-on weapon for IFV and so on. http://btvt.info/3attackdefensemobility/rarn_shipunov.htm

    Actually it is a well known idea used in "cells" armor developed by hydrodynamic institute of Siberian departament of academy of scince of USSR in 70s. http://btvt.info/5library/vot_yacheiki.htm

    ERA is another product. Creation of a welded turret or at least new turret requires a large ammount of "base resourses". A scientific "school" on welding and armour materials, it is not possible just to appear from nothing. And for example it was 40 years passed from t-64 welded (http://btvt.info/3attackdefensemobility/turret_welded.htm) turret to t-84.

    Is here anybody from "thesovietarmourblog"?

    This so called "rod" (sand rod) is used rod form a cavity in T-64 turret, then aluminum is filled into it. But this not a case for T-72, as the sand itself remains as filler. https://c.radikal.ru/c38/1803/f6/3576ae39ecea.jpg[/img]

    Hull and turret... must... ceramic blocks. You can not imagine hoe much work and resources (money, science, technology) must be invested into a new armor. Dozens of turrets firing trials, introduction of new casting/ I suppose the things you highlighted is desires.

    It is nothing but an opinion, better to find some internal photos or drawings. If so it is rather "strange" design.

    well there are well known photos showing the same STB hull as T-72A

    Looks like these "charts of CIA origin" are no longer interesting after Sweedish tender information ))) btw "charts of CIA origin" looks like fake.

    Well, Andriej I also had with drawing measuments, and well the idea of asymetric turret is not typical. Looks realistic, but some small details suggests it is PSed - different sharpness of elements, colour, shadows etc.
