According to Army Technology, the Russian army is evaluating the OTO-Melara Centauro. The article stated that the first two (2) 8x8 vehicles are armed with a 105mm and a 125mm gun, respectively.

Now that sounds like it could lead to some interesting modeling possibilities to me.

The same article pointed out that the USA uses this vehicle in the AT role. I do recall that we used the Centauro to help validate the Stryker program, but, I am not aware of it being used by us in any other capacity.

What do y'all think?
