The main story of the September issue of Popular Mechanics is the fate of Russia’s promising T-95 tank and other similar projects. Russia has come to a crossroads in tank production: Will we restrict ourselves to modernizing older models, or will we finally create a machine suitable for modern warfare? What type of tank does today’s army need? The cover story answers these questions.
