Artillery and ammunition are in the spotlight for this edition of Defense & Security. Visitors have the opportunity to discover or rediscover CAESAR® 6x6 in 1/10 format, as well as a model of the 105LG.
CAESAR® 6x6 is a wheeled 155mm/52 self-propelled artillery system. Capable of firing 6 shots in less than a minute, very fast to deploy, it makes any attempt at counter-battery fire ineffective. Combat Proven, he impressed thanks to its formidable precision against Daesh, within the Task Force Wagram, where he led more than 2500 fire missions.
The 105LG is a 105mm towed artillery gun, qualified by the French army and in use in six armies around the world, including Colombia. With a maximum range of 17 km, it can be towed by a light vehicle, transported by a medium helicopter (e.g. PUMA or Bell 212) or parachuted by a tactical transport aircraft (e.g. C130-Hercules). This extreme mobility, allowed by its low weight (1650 kg), allows it to be deployed in any theatre of operation, however complex it may be (jungle, forest, assembly...). A crew of 5 men is enough to make it operational very quickly (put in battery in 30 seconds) and to fire at a rate of at least 12 shots per minute.
