to equip the Danish land forces

 MG 2437Versailles, May 22, 2017 – Nexter, the leading French land defense systems manufacturer has been awarded a contract by the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) for the supply of 15 (plus 6 as an option) 8x8 CAESAR® artillery systems to the Danish Army.

The CAESAR® 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzer has been constantly deployed by the French Forces in combat operations since its entry into service in 2009: in Lebanon, Afghanistan, Mali and currently in Iraq. The CAESAR® is recognized worldwide as striking the best balance between the simplicity of towed artillery and the mobility and survivability of a self-propelled system.

It provides customers with a highly flexible, deployable and affordable full spectrum solution for indirect fire support. Not only is the CAESAR® very accurate, it also has the lowest maintenance costs on the market for a mobile artillery system. Over 300 CAESAR® systems have already been ordered by 5 different countries.
