Question about the T-14/15 featured in the update

Recommended Posts

Viewed that video yesterday.

Both systems seem to have weaknesses that could be exploited in combat.

is the video accurate ?

It sounds pretty resonable to me.

Well, the video did get at least one thing wrong with Afghanit: It doesn't use explosively formed penetrators, but instead launches a fragmentation warhead.

The Armata actually has another softkill system installed, designed to defeat magnetic top-attack weapons such as the TOW-2B. 

it consists of thick cables running over the sides and front of the vehicle, which shifts the magnetic field of the tank forward, causing the weapon to detonate before it reaches the tank.

Is this part of the Afghanit System?

Well, primary purpose of this system is a  protection against  mines and IEDs with   magnetic target sensors. Hypothetically it also can mess-up  fuzes of  some top-attack  munitions, but so far this isn't verified.

Yes, similar

If the purpose of the shoot is just testing the accuracy of the gun or/and the ammunition, they probably not use the "Stabilisation" 

In Belgian Army with the old Leo1a5 we turned off the Stab during those shoots to avoid accuracy error with the stab drift

Modern systems are more stable but olds procedures are still in use
