WEAPONS & ARTILLERY SYSTEMS
105mm LIGHT TOWED GUN
The light towed 105mm gun is fully adapted to be used by rapid deployment units. Lightness, ruggedness and ease of handling are its major operational assets.
In operation, the 105 LG1 has proven its unequalled reliability, mobility, manoeuvra bility and firepower. Today, it makes the ideal fire support weapon for troops engaged under all climatic conditions, including on the most difficult terrain. It can fire all compatible ammunition available within NATO, such as US M1 or the extended range HE ER G3 from Nexter Munitions (more than 17km). Nexter offers an optional system for the artillery environment (ballistic computer and inertial positioning and laying system) which is simple and adapted to flexible use of the equipment. The 105 LG1 can be integrated in all Fire Control Systems (all types of C31 system, etc).
