The RIA stated that the tanks were equipped with additional protection on the flanks, and the crews were subjected to “combat coordination” on training grounds in Ukraine, reports Reuters.
The T-14 tank has an unmanned turret, and the crew remotely controls the armament from an “isolated armored pod located in the front of the hull.”
The tanks have a maximum speed on the road of 80 kilometers per hour, according to RIA.
In January, British military intelligence reported that Russian forces in Ukraine were reluctant to accept the first tranche of tanks because of their “poor condition”.
British services added that any deployment of the T-14 would likely be “a high-risk decision” for Russia and one made mainly for propaganda purposes.
After 11 years of development, the program has been plagued by delays, reductions in the planned size of the fleet and reports of manufacturing problems, the British military said
The Kremlin ordered the production of 2,300 tanks, first unveiled in 2015, by 2020, but this deadline was later extended to 2025, according to Russian media.
The Interfax news agency reported in December 2021 that state-owned manufacturer Rostec had begun production of around 40 tanks, with an anticipated delivery after 2023.
