Nexter Showcases its Artillery Range at Indodefence

Nexter recently presented its range of artillery systems in Jakarta at the Indodefence exhibition.  
At Nexter’s stand, visitors were able to view the 105 LG1 light towed howitzer. Deployable by light vehicle, helicopter or even by parachute, the 105 LG1 is the world’s lightest 105mm assault artillery gun, and is ideal for providing supporting fire for rapid reaction forces. The 105 LG1 is in service with the armed forces of Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Belgium, Canada and Colombia.
LG1 can fire 12 rounds per minute and can be brought into action in 30 seconds if an optional inertial navigation system is included that allows the gun to be brought into action faster because it removes the need for a geographic team to calculate the location and surrounding terrain before LG1 can be used.
Furthermore, Nexter’s flagship artillery product, the self-propelled CAESAR 155mm/52-calibre howitzer was also displayed at the stand. In use by the armed forces of France, Thailand, Indonesia and a Middle Eastern country, it is combat proven in the French army’s missions in Afghanistan, Mali and Lebanon. 
FINDART, Nexter’s firing control system, and the range of artillery munitions produced by Nexter’s ammunition business group, were also on display at the stand, alongside Nexter Robotics’ NERVA range of mini surveillance and reconnaissance robots.
