Gorgona

     Notes: Described by its crews as an "armored sports car," the Gorgona was designed for rapid road reconnaissance and some off-road work.  It is basically an automobile with armor, night vision devices, amphibious capability, and armament.  The weapon mount on the roof above the commander's position can mount any weapon designed for an NLT or NMT; a typical weapon is shown below.  This weapon can be aimed and fired by the commander without having to expose himself.  The engine is in the rear and there is a large trunk up front.  The windows are of bullet-resistant glass. The only users of this vehicle are the Italian Carabinieri, Oman, and Saudi Arabia.

Centauro B1

     Notes: There are two hatches on the turret for the gunner and commander, and one on the front deck for the driver.  The Centauro can ford 1.5 meters with no preparation.  The vehicle has an independent auxiliary power unit for basic electrical needs, thus saving fuel while idling.  The Centauro is equipped with NBC protective filtration.  The gunner and commander share a stabilized thermal imager (both may use it at the same time).

     Due to the Centauroís turret, any turret hit that results in an ammunition explosion does not automatically kill the crew and destroy the vehicle.  Instead, consider all turret weapons, sensors, and electronics to be damaged and inoperative.  Then apply 50 points of concussion damage to the commander, gunner, and loader.  (Hull hits which cause an ammunition explosion still destroy the vehicle and kill the crew; 14 rounds are stored in the turret, and 26 in the hull.)

     There are attachment lugs on the turret front and hull front for reactive armor.  The Centauro is normally found only in airborne, air assault, and light infantry units.

Lizard F333E

     Notes: The Lizard is a very light and basic armored car that was meant primarily as a liaison and reconnaissance vehicle.  The vehicle is little more than an armored jeep, but has some extra utility, able to mount machineguns, recoilless rifles, or light ATGM.  The vehicle has extra mine protection, and the floor is treated as having the same armor protection as the hull front.  Only 15 prototypes were built.

R3

     Notes: This vehicle looks like something out a science fiction movie, with its long, low, slender silhouette.  The chassis is based on that of the Gorgona, while the body is long and wedge shaped, with armor sloped on all sides.  The driver is at the front with windows directly in front and to the sides; he has a hatch on top of his compartment.  The commanderís position is to the rear and right of the driverís position.  To the rear is a hatchway that can be fitted with a variety of weapons stations or light turrets.  On each side of the hull is another door, and to the rear of those doors is a firing port with vision block. 

     The T 12.7 FA has an externally mounted M-2HB machinegun that may be aimed and fired from within the vehicle.  The T 7.62 FA is the same, but has a lighter machinegun.  The T 20 FA-HS is also similar, but uses a 20mm autocannon.  The Folgore x2 FA has two Folgore recoilless rifles and a light machinegun; these cannot be aimed or fired from within the vehicle.  (The Folgores are treated as being mounted on a tripod with optronic sight.)  The T 106 x2 FA is similar to the Folgore vehicle, but uses two M-40A2 106mm recoilless rifles and has no machinegun.  As might be guessed, the TOW FA has a TOW II system. 

     The R3 was never actually put into production.
