Will Russia's New Armata Tank Come Loaded with a 'Super' Gun?
The 125mm D-91T or 2A66 “Anker” tank gun was expected to defeat almost any NATO tank when it was designed. It incorporated numerous advanced features in its design and the design of the ammunition for it. Despite its numerous advantages, it never was adopted due to it’s increased cost and the lack of backward compatibility for earlier ammunition. Now that Russia is fielding the 2A82-1M gun on the T-14 Armata, what can we learn from the last serious project to make a “super” 125mm gun?
