i would like to introduce you to the Italian top rank tank. the Ariete C1 MBT

XORDnk7.jpg

 

The Italian MBT Ariete was first developed as early as 1983 and the first prototype presented in 1986. the tank was a modern MBT meant to replaced the aging fleet of M60A1 in Italy. the tank was built in partnership between Iveco and Oto Melara. the tank was a very mobile vehicles with firepower and protection, it is capable to match about any other modern tanks such as the AMX Leclerc, Challenger 2, Abrams M1A1, Leopard 2 (i only named those who's design are similar).

 

the armament was a 120 mm L44 smoothbore gun who can use the same shells as the Leopard 2 and Abrams M1A1/2. the main shells the tank use is the KE-W APFSDS, KE-WA2 APFSDS and DM12A1 HEAT-MP. 15 shells are ready to use in the rear of the turret while 27 shells are stored in at the left of the driver. the shells are inside both hull and turret and have no anti-deflagration comparment (the tank will be destroy if someone menage to hit the shells correctly).the turret have an Hydraulic transverse drive who allow a rotation of 33°/sec in 360°. the gun elevation is -9° to +20°. One coaxial 7.62 mm L8A1 machine-gun is placed at the right side of the gun. one or two additional AA LMG can be found on either gunner or commander hatch on the roof of the turret.

 

the gun have a stabilizator on both axes,  advanced fire-control system OG14L3 TURMS, panoramic SP-T-694 sight, Laser range finder, thermal gunner sight, "hunter-killer" system and digital fire-control computer who permenently calculate the wind, humitidy and temperature of the weather to provide the most accurate fire countrol. four smoke grenade luncher are place on each side of the turret which allow the tank to create a smoke screen in front of him. the commander have in his disposal, a rationary sight that allow to turn 360° and elevated to -10° to +60°.

 

the armor of the tank is classified but the tank have a composite armor similar to what can be found on the M1 Abrams and the Challenger 2. the comparaison of the weight and also the study of the blueprint allow to estimate the armor with a effectiveness of about 580mm in the fron of the turret and 250mm on the side of the turret. the front of the hull is also estimated to have about 480mm of effectiness or armor. the side of the hull is estimated at 105mm of steel and the rear is 38mm. the rear of the turret is armored at 42mm of steel and have no composite armor. a up-grade of apliquee armor can be installed on the Arete MBT wich can be easily notice by the addition of large box on the side of the turret and the front half ofthe side of the hull. this upgrade raise the effective armor of the side of the turret to 620mm and the side of the hull (the part that is cover by the box) to 455.

the engine of the Ariete is not as strong as the engine found on the M1 Abram but the tank is a bit lighter and still can reach the speed of 70km/h on road and have an acceleration of 0 to 32 in 6sec. the Fiat turbocharged MTCA 12V 950 kW (1,270 hp) i placed in the rear of the tank. the engine with the ZF LSG3000 automatic transmission give the tank all the mobility it need. . the ariete MBT have an independent suspension system consists of 14 torsion bars with suspension arms, 10 hydraulic shock absorbers (installed on roadwheels numbers 1, 2, 3, 6 and 7) and 14 friction dampers.

well, come on I'm not here to criticize the @CaID suggestion that made Ariete C1

But I made that suggestion first, but the moderators closed my suggestion. Now I wanted to know about this because my suggestion was closed? here is my link and it's closed :017: :dntknw:@CokeSpray@SAUBER_KH7

to keep the game's ballance, they need something that can stand against the Leopard 2, Abrams, type 90 and someday the T-80 or T-72. i do not see much other candidate for the italian tree than the Ariete C1. so it's a obvious choice as top rank MBT. they may even add some prototype to fill the gap and add some meat in the top rank just like they did with the MBT-70 and XM-803. but those prototype have a good chance to be premium too. but it's still uncertain. i do not like to see too much premium in rank 6. it make the game too much pay to win.

Russian Hotline №108:
2) Q: How far will tank tech trees go? Will the T-80 become the ultimate top tier tank or will you go beyond it?
    A: We already said in the past that we're planning to go as far as to add modern (as in currently in-service with major military powers, not the long outdated M1/Challenger 1/T-64B level) tanks, and since we're still keeping true to these words, we will indeed go beyond the T-80.

Methinks Ariete C1 and the latest B1 Centauro are not out of the question after all, fellow civium!
