C1 Ariete

The C1 Ariete is the main battle tank of the Italian Army, developed by a consortium formed by Iveco-Fiat and Oto Melara (aka CIO, Consorzio Iveco Oto Melara). The chassis and engine were produced by Iveco, while the turret and fire-control system were produced by Oto Melara. The vehicle carries the latest optical and digital-imaging and fire-control systems, enabling it to fight day and night and to fire on the move. Armaments: 120mm 44 calibre smoothbore tank gun, 7.62mm coaxial machine-gun, 7.62mm AA machine-gun. Engine V-12 turbocharged diesel FIAT MTCA 1,247 hp (937 kW). This photo was taken in the Italian Army Day in Circo Massimo (Rome, Italy) in 2008.
