The artillery, area of excellence of Nexter, was highlighted on the stand. The group is today one of the world leaders in this sector, controlling the weapon and ammunition couple, as well as a large part of fire support command and control system. A presentation of the CAESAR family (6x6 and 8x8), with 155mm ammunition and 3 FINDART stations was made on the Nexter statics. Combining power, accuracy and fire rate as well as excellent mobility, the CAESAR system has become a tool of fire superiority in modern theaters of operation, particularly in the French army.

In the field of armored vehicles, Nexter exhibited the entire SCORPION range including the Multi-role Armored Vehicle (VBMR) GRIFFON and Armored Reconnaissance and Combat Vehicle (EBRC) JAGUAR that will equip the Belgian Land Component and the French land forces. With the Renovated LECLERC and the Lightweight Multi-role Armored Vehicle SERVAL, these four armored systems meet all the needs of land forces from peacekeeping operations to high intensity conflicts. To complete Nexter's offer in this area, the TITUS armored intervention vehicle was presented in its APC and homeland security versions. Perfectly adapted to the interventions in the most difficult environments, its shielding and its extreme mobility make it a major asset for intervention teams. Nexter was also offering its ARX25 turret, whose formidable weapon efficiency makes it possible to apply precise shots safely under armor, whatever the conditions, day or night.
Third European munitioner after the acquisition of the Belgian company MECAR and Italian SIMMEL Difesa, with one of the most complete product catalogs, the group presented its range of ammunition including tank ammunition of 105, 115 and 120 mm.
Nexter also exhibited some of its expertise in the field of equipment. As an architect in the field of robotics, the NERVA, multi-mission robot, was exhibited. Several combatant protection solutions were on the booth, including the fight against nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) attacks. In addition, a demonstration of the FINDMP, digital system for decision-making process, was conducted throughout the show.
