3mm Update: Russian T-14 Armata and Friends

Just in time for Putin's triumphant Worldwide Tour of Ukraine '16, here we have the newest Russian MBT, the T-14 Armata.

Some of the variants that use (or are rumored as likely to use) the base hull of the Armata include:

T-15 heavy IFV

2S35 Koalitsiya-SV self-propelled artillery system (this one comes with a separate posable barrel)

Armata TOS-2 thermobaric rocket artillery system

Armata MTU armored assault bridgelayer

A hypothetical Armata-based antiaircraft system, using the Pantsir turret

I'm going to work up some other versions -- mine-clearing vehicle, ARV -- and then I'll get some packs made up for sale.
