New Nexter-AshokLeyland-L&T CAESAR® Gun System Unveiled At DefExpo


French gun-maker Nexter has unveiled its new light CEASAR® 155mm/52cal gun system based on an Ashok Leyland Super Stallion truck chassis.

According to Nexter, "This Indian CAESAR® is proposed by Larsen & Toubro to respond to the Mounted Gun System (MGS) program and follows on the partnership with Nexter built around the Indian Artillery. Both groups are actively cooperating on the Towed Gun System (TGS), MGS and M46 Up-gunning programs in order to address the needs of the Indian Forces. With this project, associating the CAESAR® artillery system from Nexter Systems and the Super Stallion chassis from Ashok Leyland, Larsen & Toubro offers, with its partners, the best Mobility/Firepower compromise to the Indian artillerymen."

The gun comes from French Nexter and the truck is from Ashok Leyland. Then what is L&T offering in the combo? Only good offices to oil the deal?

These companies are investing like there is no tomorrow but don't take notice that country is broke under congi government. Where's the moolah for purchase. They made a big song and dance down selecting Rafale now Antony is telling no money. Height of stupidity. This is their planning. God save this country from congis. Ram bharose but he does not have a temple even.
