VRC-105,the most important success of the Centauro, came when the Spanish Army confirmed an order for 22 examples to be assigned to Lusitania 8 Cavalry Regiment. A follow-on order for 62 additional vehicles was issued by the same Army in February 2002 as a confirmation of their enthusiasm for the “Centauro”. The Spanish “Centauro”, named VRC-105 Centauro, bear last batch modifications together with some few ’on demand’ changes: stretched hull, bolted add-on armor on the hull-front, some basket-hung containers on the turret rear, some slightly modified external fittings, repositioned smoke launchers, locally made radio sets and aerials.
