Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Fast, well camouflaged, and armed with an excellent gun, the OF-40 is a lightly armored but well-armed tank, capable of providing long range firepower, then maneuvering quickly to avoid return fire. The OF-40 is not a front line MBT; it needs to be played like a light tank to survive.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent gun depression
  • Accurate
  • Powerful HEAT rounds
  • Good mobilty

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Poor armor, but the turret is still able to bounce a few shots
  • Repair kits are strongly recommended, as modules get damaged quite often.

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As the vehicle is defined by mobility and firepower, upgrades should focus on these. Upgrading to the Improved Fire Control System, Improved Laser Rangefinder, and Improved Ready Racks, along with the various ammunition upgrades, will improve firepower against enemy targets, while minimizing exposure to return fire. Upgrading to the Iveco V12M TCA Diesel engine will also provide a much-needed speed boost to the vehicle, allowing for quicker maneuvers to avoid counterattacks.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Telescopic Lens
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

History[edit | edit source]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 1976-1977
Service: 1981-2010s
Vehicles Built: 36
Operators: United Arab Emirates

The OF-40 Main Battle Tank is the first Italian-designed heavy armored fighting vehicle since the Second World War. Its development program started as early as 1976, when OTO Melara and Fiat decided to build a new tank in the 40 ton category (the later OF-40 designation stands for OTO Fiat, 40 tons). OTO Melara wasn’t developing the vehicle from scratch – in the 1970s, the company license-produced 720 Leopard 1A1 tanks for the Italian military and its experience with the Patton tank series was incorporated into the design as well. The initial version of the tank, sometimes known as the “Lion” or “Leopardino”, was – contrary to popular belief – actually not intended for export, but to replace the aging upgraded M47 and later on the Leopards in Italian service. After that plan failed due to a lack of interest in Italy, OTO Melara and Fiat re-oriented themselves to produce an export vehicle instead but in the end the only country interested in it was the United Arab Emirates and only 18 were ordered (with 2 OF-40 based ARVs, although some sources claim 3), which were delivered in 1981.

In 1983, an upgraded version called OF-40 Mk.2 was developed, featuring the new Officine Galileo OG 14 LR fire control system with a laser rangefinder and a new stabilized periscope with night-vision for the commander. According to some sources, the 18 UAE OF-40 Mk.1s were upgraded to the Mk.2 version and 18 more Mk.2s were ordered and delivered. Both versions were since retired from service. Even though the OF-40 MBT itself was not successful, its hull was used for several other variants, most notably the Palmaria SPG.
