Ok, as a (Non US) lawyer I´ll try  :   In the case of Armata Vs. Skeptics the Court finds as follow:   - That given the complete lack of evidence to support anything resembling technical specs, th

This vid shows Armata and predecessors. It has the virtue of putting a lot of useful images and video (plus not so useful PS bull) in one location, but it lacks captions pointing out what's what and f

Nice one BTR. The kruganets is really tall, I wonder how much space there must be inside. Also the boomerang thing there seems very tall.

 

When I first saw a BMP-1 in person I was amazed by how short it was (I am average heigh myself), so much for traditions.

Different tracks. The heavy version seems to have 2 bow mounted machineguns, a la BMP-3. The turret seems to have boxy missile launchers as well as whatever autocannon it has. Nice.

 

Of course, they all seem to have the extendable water deflector for amphibious use.

Those aren't hull MGs, but probably part of the APS system.  The boxes at each corner of the hull are probably radars.  The 4 tubes on the front hull and clusters of tubes just beneath the turret are probably  kill munitions of some form.

Turret design has been seen already:

The link is the same, the picture is different. It's a cache issue, Ctrl+R should help. The whole sub-site is probably still WIP.

 

Yeah, it is odd. T-15s and Boomerangs are late to the party, that's the most likely reason. I suspect Boomerang might eventually have something on the sides too.

Not without proper mast/high mounted sensors it isn't. :rolleyes:

It would defeat the point. It would be even more vulnerable than poor Khrizantema.

Yeah, that thing looks like it needs a one-story building to hide behind for proper hull-down positioning. It's one of those things that I wouldn't mind seeing despite gimped state if it's easy enough to add, but if it requires more than a casual few minutes of modelers' time, leave it out in favor of other things.
