Russia’s latest generation of main battle tanks T-14 Armata has encountered a bottleneck again, and the mass production time has been forced to postpone!
As a new-generation main battle tank developed by Russia in the 21st century, the T-14 was once considered the only fourth-generation main battle tank in the world. According to the plan of the Russian Army, this tank was originally going to be mass-produced last year and will form considerable combat effectiveness next year. But unfortunately, the T-14 has recently encountered new problems, which have delayed mass production and military time.
It is reported that there are two main reasons hindering the mass production of the T-14: First, many sensors and operating systems of the T-14 main battle tank rely on European and American electronic components, but Europe and the United States now refuse to provide these parts. Second, in the actual test, the T-14’s fire control system still has defects and needs to be further improved and debugged. Regarding when the T-14 can be officially delivered to the Russian army, sources familiar with the Russian tank industry said that due to “technical obstacles”, the mass production of the T-14 “Amata” main battle tank is likely to be postponed to 2024.
