Melon Sandbox Playground Russia T-14 Armata Mod
The Armata is a new Russian Main Battle Tank (MBT).It is also referred as the T-14.Its development commenced in 2011.This main battle tank is operated by a crew of 3 men, including commander, gunner and driver. It is in line with Russian tank-building concept, that the tank should be operated by a smaller crew in order to reduce its dimensions and weight and improve protection. Armata lacks gunner, as the gun is loaded by an autoloader. Yet most Western MBTs lack autoloading mechanism and have a crew of 4.
The Armata might be one of the most protected MBTs in the world. It has newly-developed composite base armor, made of steel, ceramics and other materials. Also Armata has a new Malakhit add-on explosive reactive armor that is claimed to be of new generation. As usual this MBT is fitted with NBC protection and automatic fire suppression systems. It has been reported that Armata will be fitted with new Afganit active protection system. However there were reportedly setbacks with development of the Afghanit. By 2018 prototypes of this system were not completed and were not ready for testing. This new Russian tank uses smoke grenade dischargers of new type. The tank has a new countermeasures system that reduces the chance of being hit by enemy ATGW with semi-automatic guidance.
All crew members are seated in a well protected compartment, that It is separated from automatic loader and ammunition.Hull roof over the crew compartment is rather thick.The only weak spots of crew compartment could be roof hatches that appear to be relatively thin.The tank has improved resistance to damage.It can operate even with penetrated armor, as far as the crew compartment is intact.It is the first production MBT with such crew layout.
The tank is armed with a 2A82 (or 2A82-1M) 125 mm smoothbore gun.This new gun has longer range and is more accurate than the old 2A46M gun of the T-90 MBT.The gun is completed with an autoloader. It was planned that the tank will be capable of firing programmable ammunition.The Armata is capable of firing gun-launched anti-tank guided missiles in the same manner as ordinary projectiles.These missiles have a range of about 5 km and can also target low-flying helicopters.A total of 40 rounds are carried for this tank, and 32 of these rounds are ready-to-use.
This Mod perfectly recreates the T-14 Armata in the Melon Sandbox Playground. It has a complete internal structure, including the iconic automatic loader, an unmanned turret, and a three-person crew driving side-by-side in the chassis. Now you can do your armor test in game!
