New Guided Missile to Be Created for Tank “Armata”
The new guided missile will be created to equip the long-term Russian tank of new generation “Armata”, the deputy chairman of the board of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation Oleg Bochkarev said on Tuesday.
“The new tank will have a new guided missile, with better performance, with very surprising characteristics for our enemy,” A. Bochkarev said in the “National Defense” program on the radio station “Stolitsa FM”.
He recalled that the Russian defense industry has a wide experience in the field of equipment of tanks with missiles; previously only the Soviet tanks were equipped with guided missiles. Russian Defense Ministry earlier this year reported that the Army in 2020 plans to renew the fleet of armored vehicles by 70%, the purchase of modern serial samples will begin in 2016.
