|At AUSA 2011 the French Company Nexter displays its 155mm wheeled self-propelled gun Caesar.|
At AUSA 2011 (United States Army Annual Meeting & Exposition), the French Defence Company Nexter presents the latest technology of wheeled self-propelled howitzer with its Caesar 155 mm self-propelled gun. This artillery system was designed to meet the fire support requirements of rapid deployment forces.
The Nexter Caesar 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzer is currently deployed in Afghanistan within the French armed forces
This gun has been combat-proven in the Afghan theater and with the United Nations in Lebanon. This innovative system used by American forces in Afghanistan is acknowledged for its excellent firing accuracy. It is used by the French Army but also by Asian and Middle Eastern forces. A new 155 towed gun, Trajan®, has been added to the Caesar® range. It was developed in partnership with the Indian company Larsen & Toubro under the 21st century Indian Artillery project.
AUSA will also provide an opportunity for presenting the range of 155 munitions (LU 211, Bonus and Spacido) – unique know-how that associated with Caesar® provides unequalled superiority to French fire support. Nexter will also be showing its range of 40 mm munitions and its new turret T40.
