About the Ariete - Main Battle Tank:
A post-Cold War development, the Italian Ariete main battle tank (MBT) employs the latest optical and weapons systems, giving the tank similar capabilities as other modern MBTs. Smoke grenade dischargers are mounted on either side of the turret, providing the Ariete with another tool against antitank weapons in urban combat. For further protection, the tank is equipped with enhanced side armor and the RALM laser warning receiver.
