The main armament on this vehicle is a 60mm HVG cannon made by OTO. It can fire two rounds including APFSDS and HE. The HE shell is useless due to the small caliber. The only shell you will use is M300 APFSDS shell. It will penetrate 249mm of armor at close range, fairly decent as a light tank but not enough to pen front of some heavy tanks. Due to the small caliber the damage it done is limited. Try launch attack from the side or rear, and aim for important modules first like gunner or cannon breach. You might not get a one shot kill but you will divert opponents' attention from your teammates. The cannon is two plate stabilized which gives you an advantage to shoot first as a light tank. Make good use of it.

Different from the FIAT Type 6614 which focus on personal carrier, Type 6616 is designed to carry heavier armament for the armored platoons of the mobile battalions of the Barabinier. Type 6616 provide different armament possibility such as 7.62mm machine gun, Rheinmetall MK20 Rh202 auto cannon, 60mm OTO Breda T60 quick firing HVG and 90mm Cockerill Mk.3 cannon. The first prototype was completed in 1972 and entered service in 1975 with a total of 185 unit produced. Despite Italy, FIAT Type 6616 is also in service in Libya, Peru and Somalia.

Description

GarageImage AUBL74 HVG.jpg


The FIAT AUBL/74 60/70M (AUBL/74 HVG) is a premium gift rank V Italian light tank with a battle rating of 8.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced during Update 1.89 "Imperial Navy" as a reward for the 2019 Operation H.E.A.T event.

General info

Survivability and armour

Armour Type:

  • Rolled homogeneous armour (hull, turret)
  • Cast homogeneous armour (gun mantlet)
  • Wheel (tires)
Armour Front (Slope angle) Sides Rear Roof
Hull 8 mm (74°) Upper Glacis
8 mm (29-36°) Driver viewport glacis
8 mm (44°) Lower Glacis
8 mm (36-46°) Top
5 mm (39°) Engine vents
8 mm (22-30°) Bottom
8 mm Wheelwells
8 mm (11°) Upper plate
8 mm (44°) Lower glacis
8 mm (16°) Front glacis
8 mm (spherical) Driver hatch
8 mm
Centre
8 mm (4°) Rear
Turret 15 mm (24°) Turret front
8 mm (13°) Turret Cheeks
15 mm (8-50°) Gun Mantlet
8 mm (34°)
15 mm (cylindrical) Cupola well
8 mm (68-72°) Turret underside
8 mm (12°) 8 mm (85°) Front
8 mm Centre & Rear
Cupola 15 mm (cylindrical) 8 mm

Notes:

  • The tires are 10 mm thick and the suspension rods are 1 mm thick.
  • The side engine grilles are only 5 mm thick, so make sure to protect those weak points.
  • There is an engine grille on the roof which is also only 5 mm thick. A weak point planes might look to take advantage of.
  • This vehicle unfortunately hull breaks quite easily.
  • A tightly spaced crew of three makes it easily taken out by machine guns and autocannons.

Mobility

Game Mode Max Speed (km/h) Weight (tons) Engine power (horsepower) Power-to-weight ratio (hp/ton)
Forward Reverse Stock Upgraded Stock Upgraded
Arcade 112 22 8.7 248 305 28.51 35.06
Realistic 100 20 142 160 16.32 18.39

Overall mobility is really great can reach up to 100 km/h, avg speed off-road being 46-56 km/h. Nice control over manoeuvrability even at high speeds. Mobility really suffers on snow or mud and severely hampers your speed. The AUBL/74 HVG also has amphibious capabilities, although speed in the water is limited to around 4 km/h.

Usage in battles

This vehicle should be played as either a Scout, Flanker or a Sniper. Use your mobility to transport from one sniper position to another. Never brawl unless you have to. Due to the highly mobile platform -- FIAT Type 6616, your mobility is one of the best in its class. Use your mobility to get to a good attack position early in the game to launch a surprise attack from the side. Use the terrain and obstruction to hide from enemy. Hold c to look around frequently to learn the situation around you. Make sure nobody is looking at your way before poke out and fire.

With only 8mm of armor on the front of the hull, the armor on this vehicle won't even stop high caliber machine gun at mid range.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • High engine HP/weight ratio and amazing top speed
  • Perfect mobility on roads and urban environments
  • Decent speed on plain fields, enough to keep up with light tanks
  • Easy to control even at high speeds
  • A rather small size vehicle, difficult to target and easy to hide
  • Smoke grenade launchers located on the turret, a player can choose which side of the tank to cover
  • Has an anti-aircraft light machine gun
  • Decent armament for a light tank: acceptable rate of fire and penetration plus near-perfect accuracy using APFSDS
  • Two-plane stabilizer allows accurate fire on the move
  • Gets the premium tank boost to XP and SL
  • Can navigate water features
  • Outfitted with night vision devices

Cons:

  • Stabilizer only works up to 75 km/h
  • Horrible mobility in shallow water and snow results in heavy dependence on roads
  • The main gun, while accurate, has a low calibre of 60 mm, more than one shot is often required to take out an enemy tank
  • Small crew of three
  • Next to no armour, vulnerable even to light machine gunfire
  • Easily taken out by SPAA and other light tanks
  • Driver's viewports greatly limit the gun depression on front-right of the tank
  • All six smoke grenades are launched at once
  • While swimming, it can only go around 4-5 km/h
  • Does not have thermal vision capabilities
