TRAJAN®
155 mm / 52 CAL. TOWED GUN
MISSION
TRAJAN® is an accurate and powerful 155mm
/ 52 caliber towed gun system able to support
any mechanized and armored unit.
It integrates the firepower of the CAESAR®
155mm / 52 caliber gun into a modern towed
gun system fitted with a firing control system,
automated implementation such as in/out of
action, laying and ammunition handling and
loading in order the crew can performed
sustained firings with limited efforts.
TRAJAN® reaches a high level of accuracy
by integrating a muzzle velocity radar (MVR), an inertial navigation unit (INU) and a ballistic
computer. TRAJAN® has been designed to reach a high efficiency in all fire actions such as direct
support fire, in-depth action fire, counter-battery fire.
Its 155mm / 52 caliber artillery is fully compatible with all 155mm 39 / 52 caliber NATO
