General Info:
The Pegaso 3560 BMR (Spanish acronym of “Blindado Medio sobre Ruedas”, “Medium Armored on Wheels”) is a 6x6 wheeled armoured personnel carrier produced in Spain by Enasa since 1979.
In 1972 the Spanish Army set the tactical and technical requirements for the development of an armed vehicle on wheels for the transport and movement of an infantry platoon to and within the combat zone. Designed by the Commission for the Development of Armed Vehicles, the Army and ENASA’s project management, the Pegaso BMR-600 prototype was evaluated for four years and production began in 1979.
But this time we are not dealing with a standard variant of the BMR, The need for a close anti-aircraft platform in the Spanish Royal Armed Forces, led to the purchase of a Italian Sidam 25 system, and they tested it on the BMR around 1985, not much is known about its use, and it is believed that only 1 was tested And after not being approved for Spain, an attempt was made to sell to Kenya.
It carries the turret and systems of the Sidam, the same 4 cannons of 25mm oerlikon.

Why it should be in game:
The most obvious reason is the Italian Tree lack of anti-air capabilities, this acquisition could give Italy a highly mobile AA in contrast to the slow Sidam-25, they would have almost the same protection capabilities. I think it would make the Italian tree much more balanced compared to the other playable nations.
