Russia to Deploy Armata Tanks, APCs, Air-Defense Missiles in Arctic


“Commanding officers of the Defense Ministry’s Transport Service will be meeting in Moscow on Tuesday to discuss the transport on railway platforms of Pantsir air defense missile complexes, Armata tanks, armored vehicles and other weapons systems to military units deployed in the country’s Arctic regions,” the statement said.

In all, nearly 70 officers from the Southern, Western, Central and Eastern Military Districts, as well as the Northern Fleet, will be taking part in the meeting.

The T-14 Armata next generation main battle tank was showcased during the May 9 Victory Day parade in Moscow, along with all-new armored vehicles, built around the Bumerang combat platform.

Apart from its advanced armored tracked platform, which combines all the last decade’s major developments and innovations in battle vehicle design and construction, the Armata tank features a multi-layer armored capsule, separated from the ammunition container, the crew is securely enclosed in.

The vehicle is fully computerized and only needs three servicemen to operate it.
