France has used it within the United Nations in Lebanon, and it is also in service in a Middle East country and forms part of the Royal Thai Army's artillery.

The CAESAR® is currently used by the French Armed forces in Mali for the Operation Serval.

Nexter Systems would like to demonstrate that the CAESAR could be a one of the best choice to modernize artillery units in the South American countries which are currently equipped with old towed and self-propelled howitzers.

The CAESAR® is a pioneer in its category and is the fruit of Nexter innovation and know-how in Artillery. This system, consisting of a 155 mm / 52 calibre gun mounted onto 6x6 chassis, combines fire power and amazing mobility. In this respect and due to its extreme versatility, CAESAR® is an alternative to heavy versions such as heavy tracked or wheeled self-propelled artillery systems. Fitted with up-to-date equipment and functionalities, CAESAR® strikes accurately and effectively at long range.

Nexter has demonstrated the versatility of CAESAR® by developing a Renault Trucks Defense SHERPA 6x6 chassis version and a SOFRAME chassis (Mercedes-Unimog base) version. Such mobility solutions coming from a commercial civilian range contribute to reduce the Life Cycle Cost of CAESAR® and optimize the logistics maintenance package burden. Other chassis versions can be developed in answer to specific customer Army requirements and some studies are in progress.
