Since unveiling the T-14 Armata tank in May 2015 during the Victory Day Parade, Russia has kept the specifics of the tank underwraps.

A video walk through translated by Ukraine War Awareness, explains some of the capabilities of Russia’s newest battle tank.

Russia also says the tanks use magnetic sensors to repel incoming anti-tank rockets.

If a laser targets the tank, the Armata is capable of releasing a cloud of debris which tricks the incoming threat.

Footage from inside the tank shows touch screens and 360-degree view cameras.


Additionally, the tanks software can set and track targets by itself, leaving the crew free to focus on other objectives.

The first ever released footage of the tank firing shows the large cannon has surprisingly little recoil in the tank.

While the tank may be a technical marvel, it is still some time away from full production.
