WEAPONS & ARTILLERY SYSTEMS
105 LG1
105mm LIGHT TOWED GUN
MISSION
The light towed 105mm gun is fully adapted to
be used by rapid deployment units. Lightness,
ruggedness and ease of handling are its major
operational assets.
In operation, the 105 LG1 has proven its
unequalled reliability, mobility, manoeuvra-
bility and firepower. Today, it makes the
ideal fire support weapon for troops engaged
under all climatic conditions, including on the
most difficult terrain. It can fire all compatible
ammunition available within NATO, such as
US M1 or the extended range HE ER G3 from Nexter Munitions (more than 17km). Nexter offers
an optional system for the artillery environment (ballistic computer and inertial positioning and
laying system) which is simple and adapted to flexible use of the equipment. The 105 LG1 can
be integrated in all Fire Control Systems (all types of C3I system, etc).
