Nexter, land defense system integrator, is exhibiting its know-how in the field of artillery. The 105 LG1 gun (photo), can be towed by a light vehicle, transported by an average helicopter (PUMA or Bell 212 type) or parachuted by a tactical transport aircraft (type C130-Hercules), will be in real on the group’s booth. The self-propelled artillery system 155mm/52 Caliber CAESAR® is exhibited as a mock-up. These two systems now equip more than a dozen armies around the world. The Fire Control System FINDART will complete Nexter’s artillery global solution.
In the field of naval medium-caliber weapons systems, Nexter is presenting the NARWHAL® and the 15A.
