An innovative 155 mm system fitted with a NATO standard 52 calibre barrel, CAESAR (CAmion Equipe d'un Systeme d'ARtillerie) stands out for its high firepower and strategic mobility. This Giat Industries private venture mounts a 155 mm/52 calibre on a modified German Mercedes-Benz UNIMOG (6 x 6) cross-country truck chassis. Compared with other self-propelled artillery systems, it has greater strategic mobility, has a maximum road range of 600 km, and can be rapidly deployed to a far off theatre of operations by transport aircraft such as the C130 Hercules.
