The Iveco–Oto Melara Consortium (CIO) introduces latest model of   the Centauro Family at the world’s largest international land and airland defence and security exhibition – Eurosatory 2016.

For the first time ever, the Centauro II representing a new stage in the evolution of the Centauro Family, will be displayed. The Centauro has been the first 8×8 wheeled antitank vehicle in the world with a high-pressure gun. Its unequalled performance is the result of a new-generation engine, modernisation of transmission, braking system and control electronics.

The new Centauro armoured vehicle represents a new stage in the evolution of the storied Centauro 105 and 120mm armoured vehicle, the first 8×8 wheeled antitank vehicle in the world with a high-pressure gun.

As regards mobility in particular, the power-to-weight ratio, increased to 24 HP/tonne, provides unequalled performance in terms of speed and acceleration thanks to the new-generation IVECO engine, offering more than 720 HP, and to the associated modernisation of the transmission, braking system and control electronics.

The digital tyre pressure control (CTIS), allied with run-flat systems, the new suspension and the low nominal ground pressure allow the new Centauro armoured vehicle to extricate itself from any type of terrain.
