The Centauro 155 is a tier 10 Self-Propelled Gun originating from Italy, and is sold by Zhang Feng. It can be unlocked with a tier 10 Unlock Token, and is the end of the SPG line.

Features[]

  • Self propelled guns: fire support vehicles for PvE missions.
  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage.
  • Uninhabited modules: the uninhabited turret (battle module) received reduced damage.

Player Recommendations[]

As a self-propelled gun, the Centauro 155 is best used as a support vehicle for helping the team progress by removing heavily armored targets such as MBTs from the battle. Teamwork is needed for those both working with and playing an SPG. Teammates should be asked to call out targets if they are in trouble, and front-line vehicles should be supported in the battle.

Pros and Cons[]

Pros[]

  • Fast reload
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Fair aiming time
  • Extremely fast acceleration and top speed for an SPG

Cons[]

  • Susceptible to wheel damage
  • Turret can only traverse 180 degrees

Upgrade Suggestions[]

The Improved Fire Control Systems and Improved Autoloader will increase effective damage output. Other upgrades such as Spall Liner and Upgraded Smoke Grenades are less important and can be disregarded until later.

Retrofit Suggestions[]

  • Advanced Fire Control
  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Filter Systems

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[]

  • Commander: Freja Hojbjerg, for her improvements to aim speed and overall accuracy.
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off-Road Driving

The Centauro 155, also sometimes called "Porcupine", is an indirect fire SPG variant of the Centauro family, armed with a 155mm L/39 OTO Melara low recoil howitzer. A prototype was shown to public in 2012 with the intent to provide an European alternative to the Panzerhaubitze 2000 SPG. However, despite a lot of interest, it failed to obtain any customers and the project was terminated.
