C1 Ariete dead end ??

Recommended Posts

So i recently restarted playing after 4 years, and already had the C1 unlocked. So i decided to grind it out since its was about half way done, finished it today and surprise surprise, i had never noticed that it didn't have a tier 9 token and or lead to any other tank (about 50k free exp gone, nice).

Is their any plans to add a token/any sort of progress, kinda feel screwed over, especially since it isn't a particularly enjoyable tank (the Italien's seem to have made the armor out of ammo racks) and would have rather spent time grinding literally anything else.....

Yeah its a road to nowhere, only way to get the T9 Lec is by going thru the VCAC milk truck, i honestly thought i'd never make it, but ended up really enjoying the VCAC, it is a long grind thou, but worth it,

It was previously located in Shishkin's British MBT line, a strange Italian outlier in a line dominated by Chieftains and Challengers. It was moved to De Laroche's lines when she was added to AW as a dealer (along with the OF-40).

It wasn't a particularly good vehicle before, and it is still very lackluster in the current meta. However, since you already had the Ariete unlocked, purchased and [partially] grinded, you should've automatically received it's replacement, the Al-Hussein, fully renowned for free. The Al-Hussein should have a tier 9 unlock token available to use within Shishkin's tree.

Unfortunately not. 

Aside from the aforementioned unlock token now found on the Al-Hussein, there are few (if any) incentives to play/grind the C1 Ariete. I would definitely agree that it is not a pleasant experience, especially due to the lackluster armour (which is quite underwhelming especially for a MBT); but it's not a particularly great vehicle IRL either (not sure why it's placed at tier 8 in-game TBH).

The C1 is likely the worst MBT currently fielded by a NATO power. The hull lacks composite armor, with the small UFP simply consisting of two spaced steel plates, while the UFP is a mere 50mm of RHe. Its only saving grace (which also applies in-game) is its main 120mm smoothbore gun, which can fire standardized NATO 120mm ammunition.

try the C1 now,  its quite a new tank.  The Rebalance gave it new life and should be between the TVII proto and TIX
