    More photos and video. So far all vehicles fulfilled all requirements. What is left is climatic and EMC tests. Also interesting info about criteria for the final selection. 55% weight goes to the contract price. 30% to technical parameters and 15% to the offset offer. https://www.novinky.cz/domaci/clanek/strelba-i-jizda-tezkym-terenem-vyrobci-v-libave-predvadeli-sve-obrnence-za-miliardy-40361588

  10. He pointed out the three main flaws of modern domestic tanks: 1. Low cross country speed 2. Lack of means of hard-kill active protection 3. Low commonalities (or shared characteristics?) between platforms (I'm not sure about this one, my interpretation on this might be totally off) He then pointed out three positive characteristics about domestic tanks: 1. Low weight and profile (obviously, when compared with western tanks instead of Russian tanks) 2. First class protection 3. Strong fire power Also, he seems quite admire T-14's design except the X shaped A-85 engine. He think that placing the crew in a separate and protected compartment is a great idea to improve crew comfort and possibility of survival. He also praised the modular design of the whole Armata family.
