Nexter unveils the CAESAR 8x8 with new automated loading system for the first time at Eurosatory
Armed with two centuries of experience and thanks to internationally recognised expertise, Nexter is one of the world’s five leading artillery systems manufacturers. The Group relies notably on its perfect mastery of the weapon/ammunition combination and can offer a complete range of products to equip artillery battalions, from guns through ballistic computers (BACARA®) and firing control systems (FINDART®) to ammunition.

The creation and mass production of the first wheeled-chassis artillery system, the "CAmion Equipé d’un Système d’ARtillerie" (Truck equipped with an artillery system), CAESAR®, were carried out by Nexter. This innovation is today a reference; the CAESAR® now equips four countries, over 270 have been sold and it is combat proven, notably in Afghanistan and in Mali with the French Army. The CAESAR® 6x6 (18 tonnes/18 rounds) offering consists today of the same artillery on three different chassis – RTD, Unimog and Ashok Leyland.

The CAESAR® 8x8 exhibited is representative of the Nexter Group‘s continuous striving to adapt its systems to suit the threats. Developed on the basic CAESAR® concept, it makes it possible to increase payload (30 tonnes/30 rounds) and is equipped with a brand new fully automated ammunition loading system. With the CAESAR® 8x8, the Nexter Group has a more extensive range enabling it to propose innovative, mobile, deployable artillery, the fire power of which still remains unequalled.
