FIAT-IVECO AVH 6636 Information request

Me too would like to know more of this vehicle, unfortunately there are only a couple of images on the internet about it and nothing more.

This is a very interesting vehicle and the ancestor of the Centauro, it is basically a prototyoe to the chassis that would lead to the Puma AFV 6x6.

Initially it was intended as a emergency and low cost replacement for the M47 Patton still in service in the '80s ( Italian M47s had a 105mm gun tho) .

Maybe BlueBeta knows something more.

There is also a pdf file with some general information, but it's in portuguese:

Google translation:



FIAT AUTOMÓVEIS S / A, through its subsidiary IVECO, installed in the
country, was the company ranked first in the presentation of the
of the selection process of the Armored Car of Personnel Transport
Average Wheels - VBTP-MR that should equip the Brazilian Army in the future
next.
 The prototype and the planned sixteen pre-series are to be built at the factory
IVECO located in Sete Lagoas, MG, using the maximum possible
components produced in the country and will be an entirely new vehicle compared to
which have already been produced in Italy.
 It is clear that they will use their experience in the production of armored
acquired over the years when, in that country, they designed several models
4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 for the Army, presenting at the beginning of the 1980s the
Heavy Armored Vehicle FIAT 6636, a 6x6 troop transport that could
carry 12 soldiers plus the driver and boss of the car. In the model was presented
armed with a .50 machine gun mounted on a roof hatch, and then the
prototype in the version with tower and cannon of 90mm that did not pass of the phase of prototype,
but that was the basis for the development of a new generation 6x6 and 8x8 called
of PUMA and CENTAURO, currently in use in the Italian Army this last tested
by the Brazilian Army Evaluation Center - CAEx, in Rio de Janeiro, in 2001.

This is turning into a huge mystery for this elusive Italian armoured fighting vehicle! We absolutely need to solve this case.

Did you ask the museum staff? Maybe you could visit again and follow up. I would, but that would require a more than 24-hour flight and I hate flying...

so you are saying you can't find information about a 3x7 meter long light armored vehicle that was produced by italy for the italian army around 30 to 50 years ago? i find it hard to believe

if you say there isn't enough info about ww2 era vehicles i would understand but not about this. it looks like this thing's looks, equipment and year of production is hardly different from AUBL 74 or r3 t106 fa (which i haven't even seen a photo of it yet). is there an explanation as why data about this vehicle is lost? how? :dntknw:

i counted on this thing being in game, it would be a shame not to be able to play it.
