T-15 and T-14 are visible in footage from UVZ's Workshop 130 in latest TV Zvezda's Voennaya Priemka episode mostly dedicated to (spreading myths about) BMPT




   Hey, turret on this T-14 is "naked", heh.


   This stupid show is hard to watch, but one more thing i saw are new rollers on Armata.






   Gurkhan few years ago told that Armatas are going to get new rollers. Difference is small, interesting if anything else was changed.

   A bit of timelines regarding Boomer and Armata.

https://ria.ru/20200507/1571037470.html (article from May of 2020)


   Boomer. Preliminary tests completed, state trials planned for 2021. Vehicle (at least IFV version, AFAIK) received export passport


- In accordance with the schedule for development work "Boomerang", "The Military Industrial Company" (VPK) together with the Main Armored Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and research organizations of the military department completed preliminary tests of prototypes based on this unified interspecific wheeled platform in Last year.
   The K-16 wheeled armored personnel carrier and the K-17 wheeled infantry fighting vehicle were created on this chassis. During the preliminary tests carried out, the prototypes confirmed the characteristics stated in the technical specifications.
   Based on their results, we decided to slightly change the armored hulls, as a result of which the conditions for placing soldiers in the troop compartment will be improved, as well as the vehicle's buoyancy will increase.

   Now at the production facilities of the "VPK" assembly of new prototypes of "Boomerang" is underway for state tests, which are planned to be completed next year. In addition, at the enterprises that are part of our management perimeter, the production base is being updated and prepared for the serial production of equipment based on this platform. So, for example, the Corps Plant JSC has completely manufactured the necessary equipment for the production of new armored hulls.



   Confirmation from VPK (makers of Boomerang):


   The Ministry of Defense will begin state testing of the Boomerang platform in 2021.


   State tests of the latest K-16 armored personnel carrier and the K-17 wheeled infantry fighting vehicle on the promising Boomerang platform will begin in 2021. This was announced to TASS on Friday by the general director of the Military-Industrial Company (VPK LLC) Alexander Krasovitsky.


   “Previously, armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles on the Boomerang platform have successfully passed preliminary tests. After them, we implemented a number of the customer's wishes, finalized the machines, made new samples taking into account all the modifications. Now the vehicles are ready for state tests, which are planned to begin next spring,” said Krasovitsky.


   In April this year, the military-industrial complex told TASS that the armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles "Boomerang", modified after preliminary tests, will receive an enlarged hull with improved buoyancy. The new hull will also make it possible to more comfortably accommodate the troops in full gear.

   Some news - it appears MoD will not wait until end of trials and want to start production earlier.


"Serial production of promising equipment, including the T-14 tank and the T-15 BMP on the Armata heavy tracked platform, will begin before the completion of all stages of their tests. This will speed up the delivery of new equipment to the troops, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko said in an interview with Krasnaya Zvezda on Wednesday.

   "To reduce the delivery time of new samples to the troops, their production will be carried out before the completion of tests after confirming the specified characteristics and testing in conditions close to combat," Krivoruchko said.


   According to the Deputy Minister, in 2022 it is planned to complete the creation of a promising T-14 tank, infantry fighting vehicles (T-15, B-11, K-17), armored personnel carriers (B-10, K-16), an armored repair and recovery vehicle ( T-16) ("Armata", "Kurganets-25" and "Boomerang"), 152-mm self-propelled artillery pieces ("Coalition-SV"), as well as a whole line of advanced combat modules for equipping tracked and wheeled vehicles."

I can hear some IS-3 disagreement.

      Hello, my friends and Kharkovites, take a sit and be ready for your brains to start to work - we are going to tell you a terrible secret of how to tell apart Soviet tanks that actually works like GLORIOUS T-80 and The Mighty T-72 from Kharkovites attempt to make a tank - the T-64. Many of capitalists Westerners have hard time understanding what tank is in front of them, even when they know smart words like "Kontakt-5" ERA. Ignoramus westerners!
         Because you are all were raised in several hundreds years old capitalism system all of you are blind consumer dummies, that need big noisy labels and shiny colorful things to be attached to product X to be sold to your ignorant heads and wallets, thats why we will need to start with basics. BASICS, DA? First - how to identify to which tank "family" particular MBT belongs to - to T-64 tree, or T-72 line, or Superior T-80 development project, vehicles that don't have big APPLE logo on them for you to understand what is in front of you. And how you can do it in your home without access to your local commie tank nerd? 
         Easy! Use this Putin approved guide "How to tell appart different families of Soviet and Russian tanks from each other using simple and easy to spot external features in 4 steps: a guide for ignorant western journalists and chairborn generals to not suck in their in-depth discussions on the Internet".
      Chapter 1: Where to look, what to see.
      T-64 - The Ugly Kharkovite tank that doesn't work 
         We will begin with T-64, a Kharkovite attempt to make a tank, which was so successful that Ural started to work on their replacement for T-64 known as T-72. Forget about different models of T-64, let's see what is similar between all of them.

      T-72 - the Mighty weapon of Workers and Peasants to smash westerners
         Unlike tank look-alike, made by Kharkovites mad mans, T-72 is true combat tank to fight with forces of evil like radical moderate barbarians and westerners. Thats why we need to learn how identify it from T-64 and you should remember it's frightening lines!

      The GLORIOUS T-80 - a Weapon to Destroy and Conquer bourgeois countries and shatter westerners army
         And now we are looking at the Pride of Party and Soviet army, a true tank to spearhead attacks on decadent westerners, a tank that will destroy countries by sucking their military budgets and dispersing their armies in vortex of air, left from high-speed charge by the GLORIOUS T-80!

      The T-80 shooting down jets by hitting them behind the horizont

      I want to show you several late Soviet MBT designs, which were created in 1980s in order to gain superiority over NATO focres. I do think that some of them are interesting, some of them look like a vehicle for Red Alert/Endwar games. 
           Today, Russia is still use Soviet MBTs, like T-80 and T-72s, but in late 1970s and 1980s Soviet military and engineers were trying to look for other tank concepts and designs. T-64 and other MBTs, based on concept behind T-64, were starting to reaching their limits, mostly because of their small size and internal layout. 
      PART 1
      Object 292
         We open our Box of Communism Spreading Godless Beasts with not so much crazy attempt to mate T-80 hull with 152 mm LP-83 gun (LP-83 does not mean Lenin Pride-83). It was called Object 292.
          First (and only, sadly) prototype was build in 1990, tested at Rzhevskiy proving ground (i live near it) in 1991, which it passed pretty well. Vehicle (well, turret) was developed by Leningrad Kirov factory design bureau (currently JSC "Spetstrans") Because of collapse of Soviet Union this project was abandoned. One of reasons was that main gun was "Burevestnik" design bureau creation, which collapsed shortly after USSR case to exist. It means that Gorbachyov killed this vehicle. Thanks, Gorbach!
          Currently this tank is localted in Kubinka, in running condition BTW. Main designer was Nikolay Popov.
          Object 292, as you see at photos, had a new turret. This turret could have been mounted on existing T-80 hulls without modifications to hull (Object 292 is just usual serial production T-80U with new turret, literally). New Mechanical autoloading mechanism was to be build for it. Turret had special Abrams-like bustle for ammunition, similar feature you can see on Ukrainian T-84-120 Yatagan MBT and, AFAIK, Oplot-BM.
          Engine was 1250 HP GTD-1250 T-80U engine. 152 mm main smoothbore gun was only a little bit bigger than 2A46 125 mm smoothbore gun, but it had much better overall perfomance.
          This prototype was clearly a transitory solution between so called "3" and "4th" generation tanks.
          Some nerd made a model of it:

      this is my first post. Please no bully. :3
      Panzerkampfwagen 2000
      In 1988 Germany developed a concept for a tank with two crew men. In order to test whether it's possible for only two crew men to operate a tank effectively, a Leopard 1 and a Leopard 2 were modified. 

      Field trials were held in 1990 and subsequently it was concluded to be a viable concept in 1992. The project was however canceled, because the downfall of the Soviet Union meant, that a new battle tank was no longer needed. Furthermore Israel stealing submarines and reunification meant that the budget was not sufficient either.
      Neue Gepanzerte Plattform
      In 1995 a concept for a whole family of armored vehicles(SPAAG, MBT, IFV) was developed, where the MBT would be manned by two man, just like the Panzerkampfwagen 2000. A prototype was build and tested in 1997. However a further budget cut lead to the cancellation in 1998. Wegmann desgin: Turret + autoloader:
      Diehl developed an APS for this tank: AWiSS

      Hull length = 8,67m
      Full width = 3,98m
      Width between the tracks = 3,5m
      Height = 2,71m
      The intended combat weight for the complete tank was between 55t and 77t.
      Can anyone calculate the the cross section areas and the protection levels for the front and the side, assuming mid-90s filler materials were used?
      Thanks for your attention!

      i personally support it, by finding the KGB Felix Dzerzhinsky greatly improved state scurrility both inside the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and abroad (their jurisdiction was only domestic, but they kept the internationally influential people safe at night)   a dedicated defender of both the Revolution and all the Soviet peoples     what do you think of this news?
