155mm CAESAR wheeled self-propelled howitzer
The Indonesian Army acquired 37 CAESAR units for $240 million, the first two arriving in mid September 2012. Another 18 were purchased in a follow-up order signed in February 2017 during the IDEX 2017 defense exhibition
Under the contract, Nexter will supply Indonesia with CAESAR simulators for training. The 18 new units will be equipped with Nexter FINDART artillery firing control systems.
More than 50 artillery battalion auxiliary vehicles will be assembled in Indonesia by Nexter partner PT Pindad, as part of the deal.
CAESAR is a 155mm artillery system mounted onto a 6x6 vehicle chassis. It is typically operated by a crew of five and has a range of more than 26 miles.
