- Is the Armata tank still continuing state tests?

- Yes, the tests are continuing, this year the new ammunition for the tank has also entered the state tests. We expect their completion in 2022 in full, more than 40 Armata tanks will be transferred to the troops after 2023. The T-14 is a step forward for decades, the re-equipment of troops for this vehicle will be phased and smooth as the service life of tanks of previous generations expires.

   Some bits of information about Armata-based vehicles from article at VPK news.

https://vpk-news.ru/articles/65070

   About start of deliveries of Armatas:

Quote

   According to Repin, the delivery of a batch to combat units before the official announcement of the completion of the state test program is provided for by the provisions of the contract concluded between the manufacturer and the customer. Earlier, the Information Department of the Ministry of Defense of Russia announced the start of deliveries of serial batches of T-14 starting in 2022. True, the Main Armored Directorate of the Defense Ministry did not provide reliable information about which part of the Ground Forces of the RF Armed Forces will become the first operator of the newest Russian tank. There is also no exact information regarding the number of new armored vehicles on the Armata platform, specified in the framework of contractual obligations. Nevertheless, a number of unofficial sources report the customer's desire to receive one hundred and thirty-two vehicles, including a batch of experimental units, consisting of two battalion sets of T-14 tanks and one battalion set of T-15 infantry fighting vehicles. 

 

   In accordance with the terms of one of them, by the end of this year, the troops should receive a first batch of T-14 tanks. Starting from 2022, it is planned to enter stable serial deliveries of this type of product. 

 

About Syrian trip:

   According to unverified information from sources in the military-industrial complex, during the Syrian campaign, Uralvagonzavod specialists made about one and a half hundred technological changes to the design of tanks, both in service and promising models.

   The T-14 was no exception. During military tests on the territory of the SAR, a number of problematic solutions were identified regarding the level of sensitivity of the system for detecting incoming projectiles, an optical-location complex, and a power plant.

   Mentioned among the protective elements is probably a "beak" with a ERA on T-14 ("ERA module assembly V148.06.51"), from the case materials it can be concluded that there are radioactive materials (depleted uranium?) either as part of armor elements or as part of ammunition, which was used for shelling of mock-ups.

Highlighted part says "carry out soil deactivation [decontamination]". 


Also from document can be seen that they were testing frontal ERA modules, different side ERA modules, engine deck roof plates.
