The Italian army has decided to buy 50 new Centauro II 8×8 wheeled antitank vehicles, that was reported by www.liberopensiero.eu.

Italy still plans to buy more than Centauro II wheeled antitank vehicle, the latest evolution of the Centauro Family.

The Centauro II represents the logical evolution, being armed with a third generation 120/45 mm gun, with integrated muzzle brake and semi-automatic loading system.

The weapon system provides a fire power equivalent to that of most modern main battle tanks, and is capable of firing all latest generation 120 mm, NATO APFSDS and multi-role MP munitions.

On Oct. 11 the defense commission of the lower house of the Italian parliament began debating plans by the Italian military to buy the Centauro II tank and an updated version of its A-129 Mangusta helicopter.
