Antitank weapons NATO acknowledged ineffective against tanks “Armata”

Antitank weapons that use NATO may not be effective against Russian tanks T-14 “Armata”. This was stated by the expert of the International Institute for strategic studies, London Brig Ben Barry.

The complex of active protection “Afghani”, which equipped the new Russian tank that can destroy targets and physically disabling them, transfers Bi-bi-si. This system is a threat to an entire generation of anti-tank guns, including the supply of U.S. missile systems Javelin, the expert believes.

“I think they miss the uncomfortable conclusion about their own anti — tank potential,” – said the expert, adding that NATO countries should take steps to improve the system of anti-tank defense.

Brig Ben Barry, said that the NATO countries and almost not discussed this issue, but some countries are conducting studies to equip their tanks with active protection system.

So, Norway has allocated funds for the replacement of missile systems Javelin to maintain the ability to fight against heavy armor. The procurement plan for defence in Norway provides for the allocation of up to 42 million dollars to replace missile complexes.
