For a level of situational awareness that is needed for a current day battlefield in the 80-ties? I don't think so. It's not the gun or armor I'm worried about, nor the drive train or similar. It's hunter-killer. You need a commander able to see threats and a gunner able to quickly engage them. For both you need vision. Neither will be there in a crewless turret. I'm not even convinced T-14 Armata has enough and that is a 2015 released design.Development began in 1988, the soviet have the industrial capabilities, just like they also have said capabilities to develop steam catapults, which should be inested on after the Marshall gets out of the picture
So Merkava IV, extreme crew survivability since the smaller army needs to compete with the US.
