Russia's New Armata Tank Can Be Upgraded to Robot - Official
The Russian Defense Ministry unveiled its new Armata battle tank at the Victory Day military parade held in Moscow on May 9 in celebration of WWII victory over Nazi Germany.
The tank is operated by a crew of three, housed in an armored capsule at the front. Its main armament includes a 7.62 mm remote-control machine gun and a 125 mm smoothbore cannon.
Russia's defense industry was targeted by Western sanctions imposed against the country over Moscow's alleged role in the Ukrainian crisis. According to Kozhin, the restrictions have not affected Russia's arms exports and could never lead to the collapse of the country's defense industry.(Cihan/Xinhua)
