During the crisis in Ukraine, did Russia send the T-14 Armata super tank?

According to reports, a T-14 Armata tank was spotted on October 8 in the vicinity of the Luhansk hamlet of Midginskaya, a recently recognised Russian Federation area by the Russian President.

Analysts predict that the T-14 Armata’s excellent survivability, potent sensors, and mobility will make it a potent force on the battlefield even when just a small number of these tanks are deployed.

This is particularly true if the T-14 Armata is used to command other Russian armoured units, utilising its excellent situational awareness and active protection system to support its units. T-90 in huge size or T-72. It’s also likely that the T-14’s presence will have a psychological effect on both ally and enemy soldiers, which could signal a turning point in the current fight.

The question of T-14 deployment comes amid growing signs that Russia is preparing to intensify operations in the conflict zone with Ukraine, including through mass mobilization, rapid deployment more T-90 tanks and possibly opening a second land front through Belarus.

exceptional abilities and strategies

The T-14 Armata can give great survivability against anti-missile missiles thanks to its frontal armour protection, which is equal to a thickness of rolled steel over 900mm, paired with Malachit explosive reactive armour and AFGHANIT active protection system. The Ukrainian army currently employs a sizable number of Javelin tanks.

The T-14 is better suited for command tasks due to the separate crew compartment’s substantially superior survivability.

Although the T-14’s Vacuum-1 armor-piercing stabilised tail-end shell-piercing ammunition (APFSDS) and ability to withstand hits from any known tank ammunition are important qualities for a potential clash, these capabilities may not be the T-14’s most prized feature due to Ukraine’s lack of advanced tanks.

First, it is anticipated that the T-14’s strong anti-infantry capabilities employing Telnik fragmentation rounds will be much more valued than those of the Vacuum since Ukraine relies on large infantry formations and outnumbers Russian forces by a wide margin.

The T-14 Armata can move at a speed of 75-80km/h both in forward and reverse mode, meaning that the chances of the tank being disabled or captured will be significantly lower. This is in contrast to the T-72 and T-90 tanks, which are said to have a reverse speed of only about 4km/h, forcing the crew to abandon the vehicle or reveal their rear armour when retreating.

Although it is still unclear if Russia will be able to produce more T-14s rapidly enough to make a significant contribution to the conflict in Ukraine, expanding T-14 deployment may take precedence. as they did with the T-90M, for Ukrainian military and their NATO allies seeking to purchase one for research.

New American tank generations were introduced.

The next-generation AbramsX battle tank has been previewed by US defence contractor General Dynamics in a video posted to its YouTube page. The US Army’s annual forum (AUSA 2022), which takes place in Washington, DC, from October 10 to 12, will see the debut of the AbramsX technological demonstration.
