Nexter Systems » CAESAR 2

20 years have passed, and French guys from NEXTER finally decided to modernize their self-moving howitzer CAESAR. Well, you probably guessed that they haven’t touched the weaponry, as long as there Is nothing to change for the moment, but speaking of chassis and the weapon control system, there are a few changes.

Why did they decide to switch to an 8-wheeled chassis, instead of a “normal” truck? I don’t know. Basically, it’s obvious that from now on the truck is capable of carrying almost twice more ammunition, which is profitable. Speaking of weight, it’s also increased from 17.7 tons to 25-30, depending on the type of armor.

Looks pretty hot, doesn’t it? The new WCS was completely remade, so that it shot faster and more precise. Even though the machine isn’t still equipped with an automatic reload system, which is absolutely weird. Perhaps they wanted to save some money? For the moment the new CAESAR is nothing more than a prototype, waiting for potential customers’ approval.
