A viral video showing Russia’s T-14 Armata battle tank has ignited speculation about whether the weapon will be deployed in Syria.

One can assume that Russia will be hesitant to deploy the T-14 against Ukraine, as the latter has intensified its ground offensive after recapturing Kherson. There has been speculation that the next-generation T-14 Armata tank has been deployed for combat in Ukraine after a video of the tank was posted on the internet.

Footage of the T-14 Armata tank being operated at one of the Russian Federation’s training grounds was released on Nov. 20. According to local Russian media, the facility is a mobilized military personnel training center. A previous video showed Russian troops walking on a paved road while a T-14 Armata tank slogged through mud. However, this new video shows the same tank trundling through mud while troops walk beside it on a concrete road.

In early October, a video of the T-14 Armata tank was reportedly filmed at a training ground in Kazan, the capital of the Russian Republic of Tatarstan. Some Russian media outlets alleged that the tank was seen near the village of Midginskaya in Luhansk at the time.
