    It seems that it can't be seen anymore, but that can be helped. Here's another picture of the same weapon:

    although the pattern is that of the german army I have found this web site.

    http://homepage.eircom.net/~steven/italian_army.htm

    the title of the pic is PZH!A which again would appear to be german maybe the italians have bought it from them.

    Another unknown (not a tank, but hey)

    this pic featured in a BBC news article about a failed coup in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and presumably belongs to the government.

    It looks a bit like one of the Phirana family, but I'm not sure.
