Some random comments on reddit about T-14 Armata without sideskirts, V-Day 2016 parade rehearsal, Alabino, Russia
- Well an unmanned turret sort of necessitates that.
- Those tanks are massive. Very un Russian tank like.
- Cough Eum COUGH Russian in the past have made many, massive, tanks.
- That's WWII design philosophy. Once the Cold War kicked off, all Soviet tanks used a different design. Being small, easy to mass produce while still being competitive to Western tanks like the M60 and Leopard 1. The T-14 seems to stray away from the "small" idea, and I bet that un-manned turret is gonna give the manufacturer some hell in the early stages. So yeah, this is a very un-Russian Russian tank.
- Those were WWII tanks. Bigger means more armor and more room for a big gun. Nowadays things are different due to guided missiles and advanced CAS.
- Still means the same today, one of the reasons that the russian turret is so big is because it's rumoured that they built it to get a 152mm gun into it in the future. Much like the new South Korean tank.
- I don't know that about the 152. But if you look at the Soviet Cold war tanks. They're rather small compared to other tanks from that era. The T-90 compared to the Abrams is quite funny actually.
- Most western tanks were designed with the option to up gun to 140mm in mind
- Not really. At the time when the Leopard II and M1 Abrams were being designed NATO guns were only 105mm and 120mm, with that one weird 152mm for throwing missiles and kegs of explosives. The 140mm idea was later and would have necessitated a new turret.
- Barring the KV-2, the other examples aren't that big. Especially in comparison with other contemporary designs.
- Have you ever stood next to a stalin III or an SU 152? They are massive, even compared tot he big german tanks of that time. Read more comments
