The weight of ARIETE MBT means that the current standard Army transport wagons (IVECO ATC81) becomes insufficient. In fact, the load limitation for the ATC is 50 tons. when ARIETE has class over 59 tons.   For this reason, the technical organizations of the Armed Forces have selected a new vehicle got  joined tractor ASTRA MS 88.50 TIM 8x8 and French trailer LOHR SMC 64-6.3 DI.
The tractor is the heaviest vehicle family MS (Military Standard), recently introduced by  ASTRA and already has several minor versions in service with the Army. (i.e. complex  APS-95).
The trailer is substantially similar to that adopted by the French for transporting  Leclerc tank.
With the entry into service of vehicles, for the first time in its history E.I. have supplied wheeled vehicles with weight exceeding 100 tons. Indeed, the complex saturated with a cargo of 64 tons. reaches a weight of 102.5 tons. while, if the complex is saturated with a cargo of 70 tons, reaches the value of some 110 tons.
In this case the max. speed should be reduced from the normal 80 km/h to 60 km/h.
Delivery of the first models, initially planned in 2000, began in early 2004.
