Nexter and BAE Systems: a 26 Years Old Collaboration
On the industrial side, the relationship between Nexter and BAE Systems is part of the exceptional dynamic of Franco-British cooperation in the field of defense. The two companies, leaders in their respective countries, are thus celebrating the 26th anniversary of their CTAI joint venture. This collaboration has led to the development and commercial success of the 40CTA gun and 40mm cased telescoped ammunition, a real revolution in this sector.
To further illustrate this fruitful cooperation, at DSEI 2019 CTAI will be present on both Nexter and BAE Systems stands.
Products Showcased at DSEI 2019
Nexter will focus on two of its systems for this 2019 edition of DSEI.
First of all, a copy of the 8x8 VBCI armored vehicle equipped with a 40mm CTA turret. This version of the famous armored vehicle in service in the French armée de Terre represents the very best in wheeled combat vehicles. It benefits from increased protection, an even more powerful engine, additional carrying capacity and - last but not least - exceptional firepower thanks to the new T40 CTA turret, firing 40mm cased telescoped ammunition. This gun has already won over the French, Belgian (on EBRC-JAGUAR) and British (on Warrior and Ajax) armies.
