Leading French land defense company Nexter is displaying a 1/10 model of the Caesar 8×8 at its AUSA stand.
The Caesar gun is combat proven from its use by the French army, in its version 6×6, notably within the Task Force Wagram deployed in Syria between September 2016 and May 2019. The experience of the French artillerymen, combined with the precision and flexibility of CAESAR, has enabled the accomplishment of 2500 firing missions, or about 18,000 shells fired.
