Features[edit | edit source]

  • 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[edit | edit source]

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.

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.
