New tank will replace Russian Federation's T-72 and T-90 tanks.

Technology marches on, and given the turmoil over in Russia, it seems logical that that technology comes in the form of new armor for the battlefield.

The Russian Federation's T-14 Armata tank, which was developed by the same company that manufactured the Russian Federation's T-72 and T-90 models has been unveiled. According to International Business Times, the new T-14 will replace the older models as Russia's main battle tank.

The heavy armor has a bit of a different look than the previous models.

"This is the least Russian-looking Russian tank I've ever seen," said a Russian defense expert, speaking to The Escapist on condition of anonymity. "But the photo leak suggests we'll see substantial numbers of T-14 prototypes in May, as the Russian military had previously stated. There was a rumor there would only be three T-14s in the Victory Day parade."

In an opinion piece run on Russian state-owned Sputnik News, the T-14 was classified as "on par" with the German Leopard 2 and the American M1A2 Abrams tank, which are currently the most advanced models run by each country.

Blogger Alexey Khlopotov graced us with a few shots of the elusive tank (seen above). Some of the images are taken from YouTube user Alexander Smirnov's video supposedly showing the new T-14 tank.
