The technical group using the Armata platform is designed according to the modular principle, so that repairs can be made simply by replacing components with new ones. This dramatically simplifies battlefield repairs. Furthermore, all new armored vehicles can be delivered to the battlefield by airplane or train and due to the latest onboard equipment are integrated into a unified information space for automated systems management of troops and weaponry, which means that they are capable of conducting network centric warfare.


Self-propelled unit, which will replace the ACS MSTA-S, is also designed using the Armata platform. The Coalition has an unmanned combat compartment where there is an automated pneumatic loading system, which ensures a high rate of fire. The ACS is capable of hitting ground targets at a distance of 70km while in a high rate of fire mode. The new loading technology enables quick preparation for firing and can also change its deployment within a minute.
