The B1 Centauro 105 is a tier 7 Tank Destroyer originating from Italy, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the LAV-600, and leads to the M1128 MGS.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • High spot and rof: had high spotting ranges and rate of fire.
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles.
  • First order ready rack: allows you to fire several round and reloads automatically.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

A close counterpart in gameplay to the LAV-600, the Centauro 105 features a powerful rapid-firing 105mm main cannon with a three-shot ready rack system, allowing it to apply massive burst firepower to an enemy vehicle and then quickly relocate while reloading. Best played as a long-range sniper, the Centauro 105 is vulnerable to being caught on the reload.  If it does, it must use its mobility to rapidly disengage, as it has little effective armor against heavy enemy firepower.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent accuracy
  • High mobility
  • High camo rating
  • Powerful burst damage

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Lightly armored
  • Large target
  • Long reload on entire ready rack

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As a platform designed around firepower and mobility, the upgrades researched should reflect this. Upgrading to the Improved Gunner Sight, Improved Storage, and various ammunition upgrades will offer a much more varied arsenal, and upgrading to the Improved Wheels will boost the already stellar mobility.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

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

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Viktor Kirsanov, for rate of fire and aim speed
  • Driver: Smooth Ride, Off Road Driving
  • Gunner: Quick Draw, Sharpshooter
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Preparation/Explosive Shells

The angled steel hull and turret protect against 25mm rounds from the front and 14.5mm rounds from all sides, making it nearly impervious to non-mounted infantry small arms and a large number of autocannons.

Primarily an urban combat survival kit, the Centauro Romor ERA is composed of thin sheets of metal that reinforce the vehicle sides and rear to improve small arms protection, while ERA on the turret and hull sides defends against HEAT shells, reducing penetration by a few hundred millimeters.

History[edit | edit source]

This Italian-built tank destroyer was created through a partnership between manufacturers with the goal of developing a vehicle that matched the firepower of a Leopard 1, but possessed greater mobility to give it a tactical edge. Produced between 1991 and 2006, with a total 490 units built, the B1 Centauro is still in active service to this day. Through the years the vehicle has proven itself to be effective in patrol and escort missions. The vehicle has faced combat in Eastern Africa, Western Asia, and Eastern Europe.
