High-Tensile Leaf Armor for “Armata”


As part of creation of the future combat vehicles (MSDS) “Armata”, JSC “Research Institute of Steel” completed the development of the latest high-tensile sheet steel armor. Its use will increase the armor properties by more than 15%. Moreover, its performance exceeds serial domestic steel and world counterparts from overseas steel mills.

Created by the Scientific and Production Corporation “Uralvagonzavod”, a new generation tank “Armata” possesses unique combat capabilities. The crew will be placed in cell and isolated from the fighting compartment, which will significantly increase its protection and survival.

The tank will have satellite navigation and other technical innovations, which have no analogues abroad.
