The Russian Defense Ministry has signed an order for a pilot batch of more than 100 state of the art T-14 “Armata” tanks, the first of which are already arriving for trials.

The deal signed with Uralvagonzavod, Russia’s leading tank manufacturer and creator of the T-14 “Armata,” will see the first batch used in comprehensive military tests simulating combat situations.

“We have a contract for a pilot batch of more than 100 machines. They are already arriving for trials,” Deputy Defense Minister Jury Borisov , as quoted by RIA on Tuesday.

The announcement came during a military forum being conducted outside Moscow called “Army 2016.” Officials have yet to disclose the exact cost of the deal.

The program to supply the Russian army with T-14s was initially planned to last until 2020, but, according to Uralvagonzavod chief Oleg Sienko, it is now due to be extended until 2025.

The Russian military estimates that it will need 2,300 of the state of the art tanks.
