T-14 Armata by Chan Jackson

Chan built the Zvezda kit of Russia's latest MBT: the T-14 Armata. The T-14 features a 3-man crew in an armored capsule, a crewless turret, and a 125mm gun (with a 150 mm gun projected for the future.) It is cheaper to manufacture, longer ranged and faster than anything in their current arsenal and is definitely of great concern to NATO. Currently, there are 1,200 examples of the tank with thousands more planned by 2020.   Chan reports it was a nice kit and relatively easy build with "link and length" track and nylon screen provided. He painted it with Tamiya acrylics.
