Here is an inside look at the Armata, Russia's main battle tank

The Armata is billed as Russia’s deadliest battle tank and is based on a universal combat platform that serves as the chassis for other military vehicles.

The first configuration, the T-14, has a heavily armored hull and a 125-mm cannon.
