    Ariete is an anagram of Itaree, which is how you say Italy with a stereotypical Japanese accent. Just putting that out there.

    Extremely bland and forgettable, I don’t know of it’s capabilities, I assume it’s distinctly average in all categories except armor which I believe is subpar.

          Italian designed*, it’s built at an American shipyard

          Yeah. I'd add that Italians technically did an armistice (which is different from a surrender)

    The L/44 gun is good, but unfortunately it doesn't benefit from DU rounds since Europe exclusively uses Tungsten.

    The armor isn't that effective, about 500/600 mm vs APFSDS. Arietes received bolt-on armor, but I don't know how much RHA it adds.

    The FCS is really good. Basically they packed an aviation system into a tank. Highly accurate.

    Mobility is also good with 65 Kph on road and 600 Km of range (road).

    The Ariete's problems are its armor and the gun, beacuse Tungsten needs the L/55 to be effective these days.

    >not enough armor
    >no blow out panels
    >no thermal for commander, only for gunner
    >ok gun, L/44 will do the job but not really that great
    >less armor makes it lighter so at least it has good PWR

    it's absolutely mediocre even when it was built in the early 90s. but then again italians hardly if ever use tanks so why care? they're always in the back lines helping with logistics n shiet while the amerigrunts bear the brunt of action. and if they really need mobile firepower they always have the centauros.

      of all italian designs the ariete is the worst. it looks unassuming and utilitarian, like someone tried to catch up as quickly as possible with other nations without having time to properly design it. it's overall ugly. one of the ugliest tanks around bar the indian arjun

    Very sexy but extremely flawed, good for parades before getting into an actual fight and becoming irrelevant immediately, much like in WW2.

    In summary, Italian/10.

    It's a tank. Not noteworthy to mention in any discussions about MBTs. It's like their Tardo IFV

    Not great, not terrible.
    The worst western tank is still better than all Russian and Chinese tanks.

    it was ok-ish for the time it was supposed to come out (1985)
    C2 ariete will be better, especially if the off-the-books upgrades go through
    still, it looks sexy as fuck
    also, the parliament transcripts for the acquisition programme are absolutely comedy gold
