From a wargaming perspective, ten of them hub to hub would be better!

The more I see of it, the more the t14 looks wrong. The turret looks particularly vulnerable.

Tell that to the Nazis, Alan M…

Nazis? Nazi's wouldn't have faced the T14.

The turret is unmanned. Crew all in the hull.

@Alan M: As JayM481 says, the T-14 turret is completely unmanned.

I'm most interested by the BMD4, seems the Russians are doubling down on the dual-gun turrets. 100mm gun for blasting infantry out of cover and ATGMs, 30mm for light armor.

True, but take out the turret and all you have left is a very low capacity apc!I'm sure there's more to it.

Turret armour is probably quite a bit thicker than would be the case if you had to stuff a couple of dudes in there.

Hate the orange and black stripes on the sides, sorry.

The orange and black stripes are references to the ribbon colors for the Soviet medal for victory over Germany in 1945, which is what the parade is commemorating. The Russians apparently think it's appropriate for the occasion.
