Nexter Group is presenting part of its product catalogue at the IDET exhibition in Brno, Czech Republic, from 6 to 8 October 2021. A week after the Czech Ministry of Defence signed a contract for the purchase of 52 CAESAR 8x8 artillery guns, Nexter is exhibiting a sample of the CAESAR and an overview of its artillery ammunition range on its stand (P-076).
On 30 September 2021, Czech Defence Minister Lubomír Metnar signed a contract for the procurement of 52 CAESAR 8x8 guns, in the presence of French Minister of Defence Florence Parly and Nexter CEO Nicolas Chamussy. By placing this major order, the Czech Republic becomes the third European customer and the seventh user of the CAESAR in the world. With more than 350 units ordered in France and for export, the CAESAR has become the benchmark in the wheeled artillery systems market. The CAESAR 8x8 installed on the stand corresponds to the version already acquired by the Danish army. The configuration of the Czech version is still under discussion with the operational staff.
