Russian Super Tank Breaks Down at Rehearsal

A Russian Armata tank breaks down at the rehearsal for Victory Day 2015. The "Armata" Universal Combat Platform is a Russian prototype of an advanced next generation heavy military tracked vehicle platform. The "Armata" platform is intended to be the basis for a main battle tank, a heavy infantry fighting vehicle, a combat engineering vehicle, an armored recovery vehicle, a heavy armored personnel carrier, a tank support combat vehicle and several types of self-propelled artillery under the same codename based on the same chassis. It is also intended to serve as the basis for artillery, air defense, and NBC defense systems.[8] The new "Armata" tank platform is meant to replace the older Russian MBTs and APCs that are currently used by the Russian military.
