Nexter Systems, Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) and Ashok Leyland Defence Systems have signed a consortium agreement to collaborate for the Mounted Gun System (MGS) artillery programme of the Indian Army.


The artillery system proposed for the MGS programme by the consortium led by L&T acting as prime contractor is a version of the well-known CAESAR® artillery system fitted onto a 6x6 Super Stallion chassis from Ashok Leyland. Unveiled for the first time at the DEFEXPO show in New Delhi in February 2014, the Indian version of the CAESAR® is also on display at the Nexter stand at Eurosatory 2014.


The partnership among the three companies is based on delivering the best solution and value to the Indian Army. The customization of the systems to fulfill specific Indian requirements will be done in cooperation between the three companies.


Nexter and L&T are already teaming for the Towed Gun System programme of the Indian ministry of defence, by proposing the TRAJAN® which is under evaluation in India.
