From the BBC:

"The Armata tank has an unmanned turret and a 125mm smooth-bore cannon that can fire guided missiles as well as shells. The two-man crew has better protection than in existing Russian tanks. They will be housed in a reinforced chamber, away from the main gun, Russian media report.

Zvezda TV, a Russian defence ministry channel, says the tank's chassis is adaptable as a platform for other weapons systems. And Russia's RT news says the Armata could "evolve into a fully robotic battle vehicle". Its computer technology, speed and manoeuvrability are said to be far superior to those of the T-90, the current mainstay of the Russian army. Russia plans to bring in about 2,300 Armatas, starting in 2020, to replace Soviet-era tanks."

I wonder what are those large openings on the armour of the turret. Could them be for weapons not yet installed? Previews showed the turred armed with aa machine guns on the sides, but the look of these openings is strange, they wouldn't allow elevation of such weapons.

Note the periscopes behind the drivers position, I can only assume his seat slides backward for driving with hatch closed? And if it does only have two crew the commander/gunner is going to be very busy. Odd since it was proved years ago that this arrangement doesn't work?

For an un-manned automatic turret it's still quite big & bulky....

The New tank has KAZ allround active self protection, to intercept incoming rounds and missiles, the turret has a lot of new technology in side.

The Kaz system, can be found on other new Russian Armour.
