The OF-40 is a tier 4 Main Battle Tank originating from Italy, and is sold by Francine De Laroche. It can be unlocked from the AMX-30B2 Brenus as a side branch of the main French MBT line.

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]

Designed by Italy, this main battle tank was initially created for the export market. The OF-40 was produced from 1980 until 1985, marketed as an affordable and capable alternative to higher cost vehicles. The United Arab Emirates became the sole country to purchase the vehicle, and only 39 were manufactured.
