An eye-catching video, partly shot from the capsule of Russia's state-of-the-art T-14 Armata tank has emerged on the Internet.

A four-minute YouTube clip shows the T-14's crew of three implementing an array of tasks during what appear to be tests conducted by the military.

In particular, the T-14 performs several 360 degree turns, and then rushes down the road at a speed close to its maximum.

Apparently, the clip was filmed in the wintertime, which is why the Armata looks especially impressive against the backdrop of a snow-covered landscape. The video ends with the T-14 successfully destroying a target using its 125-mm gun.

In early March 2016, Sergey Chemezov, head of the Russian state corporation Rostec, confirmed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that the T-14 is already being mass produced; Sputnik reported.
