Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said in early February that Moscow ordered two battalions of T-14 Armata tanks and one battalion of T-15 infantry fighting vehicles.
The T-14 and T-15 are part of Russia’s new Armata universal chassis system, which serves as a platform for up to 13 tracked armored vehicles, including the self-propelled Koalitsiya-SV howitzer, according to The Diplomat.
Initially, Moscow said it would put 2,300 T-14s into service by 2020, but because of budget constraints, scaled it back to 100 tanks by 2020. The two battalions of the T-14 already ordered would consist of 80 tanks.
As such, the T-14’s capabilities are not yet fully realized, since Russia only has 20 prototypes, and is still testing the platform.
