This Italian-built tank destroyer was created through a partnership between manufacturers with the goal of developing a vehicle that matched the firepower of a Leopard 1, but possessed greater mobility to give it a tactical edge. Produced between 1991 and 2006, with a total of 490 units built, the B1 Centauro is still in active service to this day. Through the years the vehicle has proven itself to be effective with patrol and escort missions. The vehicle has faced combat in Eastern Africa, Western Asia, and Eastern Europe.
Added to the Centauro range on late 2013 to fill the role of a self-propelled howitzer, being able to fire up to 8 rounds/minute to a distance exceeding 60km for guided ammunition. It mounts an ultralight 155/39mm main gun, based on the latest material breakthroughs, and a secondary 7.62 or 12.7mm MG. The 155/39 is manned by a crew of two and provides full NBC and ballistic protection.
