They also make the OTOMAT anti ship missile. It is not as powerful as the Tomahawk, but a good match for the Harpoon.
Plus we could mention that one third of the design of the Tornado and Typhoon aircraft is Italian. The other 2/3 are British and German.
You have probably no news about major Italian military exports abroad. The main reason is that the main customer in the 80s was... well, Iraq. There was an entire fleet of ships ready for delivery (think I have actually seen them in 1991 in La Spezia) when Saddam had the unfortunate idea of invading Kuwait. They were never delivered, of course. They are currently part of the fleet that patrols the Lybian coast.
Plus Italy produces the only wheeled tank destroyer in the world with a 120mm gun. Not an APC, a Tank Destroyer.
Going back to mechas: ammunition will be handled as normal in BRP - you know how many rounds you have, and you mark them off when you fire. Many mechas can carry extra clips, and some energy weapons are linked to the core reactor, so they use up PP, not ammunition. But most mass-produced mechas will use autocannons with normal ammo (40mm to 120mm caliber) or beam weapons with an internal power cell.

Out of all the things Saddam did, the invasion of Kuwait was probably the best justified. They Kuaitis were stealing millions in oil and Saddam actually did (for one) try to come up with a non-military solution....when Saddam had the unfortunate idea of invading Kuwait....
Is that a good thing? I don7t think that they are leading the world in TD design, just that everybody else went with a tracked TD.Plus Italy produces the only wheeled tank destroyer in the world with a 120mm gun. Not an APC, a Tank Destroyer.
Sorry, but I just don't buy the idea that a 10mm rapid fire cannon is goin to turn out to be a signficant improvment over the current technolgies or that it will revolutionize the military forces of the world.
Im not sayingthat Italy can't produce some new and game changing military tech, just that heavy caliber high ROF cannon isn't it, and that the seck is stacked against Italy. It doesn't have as much money to spend on R&D.
How about belt-fed weapons? Not everything uses an easily changed "clip". (I'm thinking of something like a GU-11 gunpod)Going back to mechas: ammunition will be handled as normal in BRP
Smiley when you say that.
Hmm, just a thought, but a mecha scale crossbow could be a nasty weapon.
Yeah, especially if you got giant sized robotic arms to swap them out when empty.For the rest, I think 100-rounds clips or drums are ok.
