Nexter has placed an order for 70,000 artillery modular charges with Eurenco, the European leader in energetic materials.
The modules will be manufactured on the Eurenco Bergerac site and delivered between 2021 and 2022 to the French Army for use on the Nexter’s Caesar artillery system.
These modular charges for the Caesar system meet the requirements of the NATO “JBMoU” standard, making them compatible with all 155mm artillery systems that comply with this standard.
These modern artillery charges – using from 1 to 6 modules depending on the desired range of fire – replace conventional “cartridge bags” charges.
This propellant system allows safer implementation and simpler operational use as only two types of modules, live and slow charges, are used
The modularity of the propellant also makes it possible to reduce the logistical footprint and reduces the ammunition supply requirements of the artillery piece.
