Nexter is showcasing its know-how at DSEI by proposing solutions, equipment and ammunition that meet the needs of armed and security forces. Nexter has a strong export presence with 52% of its order intake in 2018 intended for the export market.
Nexter is focussing on its VBCI armoured vehicle and CAESAR 8×8 self-propelled artillery system at the ongoing DSEI.
On display is a copy of the 8×8 VBCI armoured vehicle equipped with a 40mm CTA turret, which is already in service in the French armée de Terre.
It features increased protection, a more powerful engine, additional carrying capacity and the new T40 CTA turret, firing 40mm cased telescoped ammunition. This T40 CTA turret has won the approval of French, Belgian (on EBRC-JAGUAR) and British (on Warrior and Ajax) armies.
A mock-up of the CAESAR 8×8 self-propelled artillery system is also on display. The Danish ground forces are the most recent customer and ordered 19 CAESAR 8×8 (15 to be delivered in early 2020, 4 more in 2023).
Nexter and BAE Systems are showcasing their CTAI joint venture, which led to the development and commercial success of the 40CTA gun and 40mm cased telescoped ammunition. CTAI is present on both Nexter and BAE Systems stands.
Nexter is also meeting all the challenges of the SCORPION programme, through the development of the new VBMR-GRIFFON armoured vehicles (in production), EBRC-JAGUAR, Lightweight VBMR-SERVAL, the renovation of LECLERC MBTs and the future SCORPION increments.
