The T-14 is the world’s only post-war third-generation tank. Armata is Russia’s development, which has no counterparts in the world. Earlier, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko said the Defense Ministry had signed a contract with Uralvagonzavod for the delivery of 132 T-14 tanks and T-15 infantry fighting vehicles based on the Armata combat platform.
