According to analysts of the publication World Digital News, the main advantages of the Russian tank are the tank`s mass, the caliber of the gun, its engine power and armor. Largely due to the uninhabited tank turret, the designers of the «Armata» tank managed to achieve a reduction in its mass to 49 tons. Moreover, the appearance of the tank was lower and less noticeable to the enemy. Also it is possible to install 125 mm or 152 mm caliber guns.
The «Armata» engine allows reaching speeds of up to 90 km / h. The volume of the fuel tank was designed for a range of up to 500 kilometers. The thickness of the frontal armor «Armata» is 950 mm, and the basis of the armored plate based composite alloys. In this case, the tank is equipped with defensive complexes «Afghanit» and «Malahit», which counteract the anti-tank shells and missiles.
