Artillery systems will also be featured with a virtual demonstration of the Caesar  8x8 self-propelled howitzer and the presence of models of the 105LG1 towed howitzer and a Caesar.

As regards digital systems, demonstrations of the FINDMP  touch-table decision support system and the Findeaglesystem will be given throughout the exhibition. Viper perimeter vision solutions, as well as the Virtual Maintenance Trainer system for Leclerc, Leclerc MBT and Titus vehicles will round out the range of combatant support systems on exhibit. In addition, the Nexter stand features the unmanned T40 turret and the CT40 AHS cannon.
