IDET 2021: Nexter and STV Ammunition Cooperation Agreement

155mm Rounds for CAESAR to be of Czech Manufacture

During IDET 2021 in Brno this week, Nexter announced the earlier signature, on 20 September, of an agreement with Czech manufacturer, STV Group, for the local supply and certification of artillery shells and modular charges.

Nexter has undertaken to support the certification of 155mm artillery ammunition manufactured in the Czech Republic by STV, for use on the French company’s CAESAR artillery system – for which the Czech Army has just agreed a procurement of 52 examples mounted on a Tatra 8×8 chassis. The agreement also provides for the acquisition direct from Nexter of specific 155mm munitions, such as the LU 215 flare, LU 217 smoke and BONUS anti-tank rounds.

This agreement establishes a lasting partnership between Nexter and STV Group to secure the Czech Republic’s ammunition supplies, while contributing to the development of the local ammunition industry,” commented the head of Nexter’s ammunition unit, Dominique Guillet.
