|The T-14 Armata (Т-14 «Армата») is a new Russian main battle tank based on the Armata Universal Combat Platform. It was first seen in public during rehearsals for the 2015 Moscow Victory Day Parade. The Russian army plans to acquire 2,300 T-14s in the period 2015-2020.|
The T-14 represents a new generation of Russian main battle tanks. The most significant new feature is the use of an unmanned turret, with the crew of three seated in an armored capsule in the front of the hull.
|The T-14 is powered by a ChTZ 12Н360 diesel engine delivering up to 1,500 hp. The engine is electronically controlled.|
The T-14 has a 12-speed automatic gearbox, with a top speed of 80–90 kilometres per hour (50–56 mph) and a range of 500 kilometres.
|The M1 Abrams is an American third-generation main battle tank. The M1 Abrams entered U.S. service in 1980 and is the principal main battle tank of the United States Army and Marine Corps, and the armies of Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Australia and Iraq.|
Three main versions of the M1 Abrams have been deployed, the M1, M1A1, and M1A2. In 2000, costs for the tank were upwards of US$5 million a vehicle.
|The gas turbine propulsion system has proven reliable in practice and combat, but its high fuel consumption is a serious logistic issue. (Starting the turbine alone consumes nearly 10 US gallons of fuel).|
The engine burns more than 1.67 US gallons per mile (60 US gallons (230 L) per hour) when traveling cross-country and 10 US gallons (38 L) per hour when idle.
|The United States Army and United States Marine Corps have received over 8,100 M1, M1A1 and M1A2 tanks combined.|
