First revealed during Victory Day parade on Red Square on May 9, 2015, the tank still remains a subject of discussion among tank enthusiasts. Two years have passed and the tank seems no where closer to induction as it was first in 2015.
Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said on Thursday, ” Armata may become operational by 2019″ during MAKS 2017 event.
“Nothing can be ruled out,” he said at the MAKS-2017 international airshow, responding to the question about the possibility of making the principal battle tank operational in 2019.
After Uralvagonzavod defense manufacturer delivers the tank, the Defense Ministry will check it for compliance with its requirements and make a decision about its fate.
