Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • Uninhabited modules: the uninhabited turret (battle module) receives reduced damage.
  • Magazine loader: allows you to fire several rounds without reloading.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

Featuring heavy, rapid firepower on a light nimble frame, the B1 Draco is a powerful killer capable of overwhelming enemy vehicles. Its rapid firing 76mm cannon offers massive damage in a short time, capable of destroying all but the toughest of vehicles. Highly mobile, it can rapidly relocate when under threat, as its armor only protects against light autocannon fire at best.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Very good accuracy
  • Good aim time
  • Good top speed
  • Deadly 76mm 12-round autocannon with good penetration and damage output
  • Clip reload is fairly fast for a 12-rounder
  • Capable of partial clip reload

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Lightly armored
  • Extremely large and vulnerable target with a huge turret
  • Difficult to hide
  • Bad acceleration
  • Has problems with sharp turns and feels clumsy during positioning
  • Rear-mounted turret making it hard to shoot from hull-down position

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As a platform designed around firepower and mobility, the upgrades researched should reflect this. Upgrading to the Improved Gunner Sight, Improved Stowage, and the 76mm XM76A1 APFSDS will offer a more potent arsenal, and upgrading to the Improved Wheels will boost to the already good mobility.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Gun Breech

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Viktor Kirsanov, for rate of fire and aim speed
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off Road Driving
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Preparation/Explosive Shells

History[edit | edit source]

The B1 Draco is an Italian-built prototype vehicle that is based heavily on its predecessor, the B1 Centauro. It is built on the B1 Centauro chassis, but makes use of the Draco weapon system. Although its primary function is anti-aircraft, the vehicle is capable of filling a number of other roles.
