[MOC] Lego C2 Ariete Italian Main Battle Tank

Recommended Posts

The C2 Ariete MBT has been developed at the end of Cold War, to replace Leopard 1 and M60. After an initial offer, Italy decided to achieve the development of a battle tank by financing its industries. The main armament of the C2 Ariete is a 120 mm smooth-bore cannon, which is able to fire APFSDS-T (Armor-Piercing Fin-Stabilized Discarding Sabot Tracer) and HEAT (High-Explosive Anti-Tank). The MRS (Muzzle Reference System) system is also present on the muzzle (on the end of the barrel). There are 8 GALIX launchers for 80 mm smoke bombs (4 per side of the turret) capable of firing FUM-B grenades which generate an effective smoke screen both in the visible and in the IR. The front and side armor of Ariete is made of steel and composite materials; the turret is built with the same technique as the hull and has, on top, additional armor to protect the crew from missiles with a high profile flight path. The C2 Ariete is equipped with the TURMS OG-I4 L3 system by Galilelo Avionica (periscopes, COSMO MP501, meteorological and ballistic sensors, gyroscopic device, MRS, coaxial auxiliary telescope). The Ariete is equipped with NBC system. It also has anemometer, RALM receiver, Radio antennas attached to digital radios of the SINCGARS type, PSO Additional Armor Pack, new 1600hp IVECO engine, Integration of SICCONA and an APS of type "SCUDO".
