Description: The Centauro is a high mobility 8x8 wheeled armored combat vehicle family designed to perform a variety of missions. It was developed by Iveco Defense Vehicles, Consorzio IVECO Fiat-OTO Melara and OTO Melara for the Italian Army in the late 1980s. The first variant, the Centauro cavalry fighting vehicle, entered service in 1991. The second variant of Centauro introduced in 2009, known as Centauro 8x8 VBC or Centauro VBM, features add-on armor for increased protection, larger troops compartment and a turret-mounted 25mm cannon to serve as an infantry fighting vehicle (IFV). Other versions have been developed for air defense, field artillery and recovery and repair of damaged Centauros on the battlefield.

The Centauro VBM Mortar Carrier is a member of the Centauro armored vehicle equipped with a 120mm riffled mortar that offers high precision and range provided with a semi-automatic loading system. This mortar carrier has been designed to operate faster than equivalent systems as well as seamlessly integration with network-centric operations. Consortium Iveco-OTO Melara introduced the Centauro VBM Motar Carrier in June 2016.
