Hi guys, I know that it’s a little bit strange to talk about the Army in this topic because it’s mainly focused on the Navy, but anyway I would like to discuss about the new vehicles of the Italian Army: 1- C2 Ariete MBT: it would be an upgrade of the C1 that would feature better survivability, handling and and combat systems, this project has been already approved and financed by the parliament and the Prototype is in the working. 2- Centauro B2: it is an upgrade with a new gun, armor, better handling and combat systems. This project has been already financed and approved and the prototype is in testing. 3-AH249 Mangusta II: it is and upgrade of the AW129 to feature better top speed and range, better resistance to extreme temperatures, sand, snow and sea corrosion (for use by the LHD), it will feature also a reduce emission of infrared signals. This project is already approved and financed and the prototype is into working. 4- Lince NEC: it’s a normal Lince but with Network capabilities. (There is also the Dardo II, but it still hasn’t been financed by the parliament) A friend of mine made a video about this topic showing some more info about these vehicles. If you take a look it would be appreciated.
