VBM Centauro 8x8 of the Italian Army (pics)

We (meaning everyone on this blog) continues to leave out the VBM Centauro when talking about modern and capable 8x8's.

Why it doesn't get more attention is beyond me but the Italians are working the "family of vehicles" concept hard with this design and will probably field the largest motorized force in NATO in a few years.  With the move to the Centauro for the Army, replacing the AAV with probably the Iveco SuperAV in their amphibious forces, the Italians will be able to motor to any location in country and across Europe with ease.

I definitely need to dig into this vehicle in the near future.  On a side note I can't figure out why it isn't a better seller.
