IZHEVSK, January 23 (Itar-Tass) – The Russian army will refuse to buy Italian Centauro wheeled tanks, Colonel-General Vladimir Chirkin, the commander-in-chief of the ground forces of the Russian Armed Force, stated in Izhevsk on Wednesday.
He said the tanks that have already been supplied under the contract are now being tested.
“The tests have not yet been completed, so it is early to make conclusions. These tanks have certain advantages, but they also have many drawbacks. They were inordinately advertized,” Chirkin said. “I believe we will have to make a polite refusal,” he said.
