@Wiedzmin what you identify there as "plate" in the top picture is actually the ceramic-based add-on module (which might be encased in steel)  present in the IFV version but not mounted on the APC shown in the middle picture. I know its the IFV because that scene showed that and also the little fixed hooks around the driver´s hatch. What you identify as "flange" is actually the base aluminium plate. In the first picture it can be seen clearly that the add-on module and the aluminium plate are of approximately the same thickness and the closeups we have on the composite show that its clearly about 30-60mm thick.

   Looks like those fuel drums are connected to fuel system of the vehicle.

   Rubber cover on a hole to the left of main gun mantlet, probably location of coax MG.

Some other changes are there compared to the usual t14

The only one I'm aware of is the small rubber cover that's appeared on the upper right side of the gun mantlet, which probably houses the coaxial MG:

Were there others?

   Full episode of Military Acceptance from 38th NII. Armata-based vehicles are going through state trails there currently. Nothing really new was shown or told.

 

   Few things to note:

   Tank bottom section in the front and rear are different, looks like some sort of mine protection under crew compartment was mounted.

   Metal boxes for orsion bars are visible in rear section of T-14

   This time they blured monitors. Previously they were showing what was on them. Maybe software was changed.

   Doppler radar for firing tests. In the video they told that TV crew was allowed to record only a shot with old HEAT round instead of new, designed for 2A82.

   Now in Kubinka, tests of three samples of heavy armored vehicles based on the "Armata" platform are in full swing. Tank T-14, infantry fighting vehicle T-15 and T-16 BREM - armored recovery vehicle. And also deeply modernized T-72, T-80, T-90, wheeled platforms "Boomerang", tracked platforms "Kurganets", various versions of armored wheeled vehicles developed by specialists of the "Military-Industrial Company". And much more, including the latest active protection systems for armored vehicles.

So we believe the "turret" is actually a simple box around the low profile gun housing and the optics, APS, etc, right?
