International Military - Russia's invasion of Ukraine caused the country to be subject to various types of economic sanctions. Because of this, the economic sector has become more late. Moreover, this has an impact on large Russian companies.

Ukrainian intelligence says that as a result of the economic sanctions imposed, Russia's Uralvagonzavod is trying to overcome the crisis. As is well known, Uralvogonzavod is a Russian manufacturer of armored vehicles, especially the Russian Federation's T-72 main tank.

Launching the Bulgarian Military, according to intelligence, there are quite a few problems. These include rising loan interest rates, lack of funds to service foreign currency loans, and rising prices for materials and components. "The production of new equipment, including the T-90 and T-14 [Armata] tanks, has been stopped," Ukrainian intelligence said in a statement.

US also said the same. In her speech at the end of March, Thea Kendler, assistant secretary of export administration at the Ministry of Commerce made this point. He said that apart from Uralvagonzavod, the Russian company Baikal Electronics was also experiencing difficulties. It is a company that manufactures computers and semiconductors.

Uralvagonzavod suffered serious losses and lacked the necessary materials and components. This is because even before the war, production of the new Russian T-14 Armata tank did not go according to plan. The main reason is lack of finance. At the time, however, the lack of funding stemmed not from conflict or military sanctions, but from a lack of interest from Russian partners.

Reporting from 19fortyfive.com, in fact Russia's new T-14 Armata can become a monster if it comes to the battlefield. Like American and Western tanks, it has a lower silhouette to make it a harder target to attack.

One interesting design aspect about the T-14 is that the three-man crew sits in another armored compartment at the front of the tank away from the 125mm smoothbore cannon and ammunition storage. Crew compartment consists of multilayer armor for better crew survival. It is reported to be able to defend against almost all types of shells from tank fire.

The front of the Armata is protected by an active defense system designed to block anti-tank ammunition from guided missiles, rockets and rocket-propelled grenades. The T-14's "Mantiya" disguise system has a radar-absorbent coating that the manufacturer claims will hide the tank from detection. The Armata has upgraded sensors, new communications equipment, and includes an electronically scanned active array radar.
