The Brazilian Army has selected the Centauro II 120 mm system made by Iveco–Oto Melara for its requirements. In mid of this year, the Brazilian Army Logistic Command issued a Request for Proposal for an 8×8 armored car armed with a 105 or 120 mm gun. TATA-DRDO developed Kestrel was offered to the Brazilian Army.
Brazilian Army announced that Eitan, Kestrel, and Wahash FSV vehicles respectively were disqualified because it was considered a prototype or belonged to a pilot batch indicating it was not widely accepted by any other operator.
A variant of the Kestrel, known as IPMV (Infantry Protected Mobility Vehicle) has been inducted into the Indian Army but one with a 105 or 120 mm gun is still at the Prototype stage since the Indian Army has not procured them yet.
