Nexter confirms Denmark's CAESAR selection
The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) has selected Nexter’s 8x8 CAESAR artillery system, the company confirmed on 22 May.
The company has been awarded a contract to supply 15 CAESAR systems to the Danish Army, with an option for six further units.
The CAESAR 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzer is a flexible and accurate mobile artillery system for indirect fire support.
The system has been ordered by five countries, and has been in service with French forces since 2009.
Stephane Mayer, CEO of the Nexter Group, said: ‘We are proud to support such a longstanding ally of the French Army and member of the NATO alliance. This first success for the 8x8 CAESAR configuration confirms the relevance of our vision and strengthens our dedication to meeting the fast-moving and specific needs of our customers.’
