105 LG1

MISSION

The NATO light towed 105mm gun was especially developed for rapid deployment units. Priority has always been given to ruggedness, ease of implementation and weight reduction.
In operation, the 105LG1 MkIII has proven its unequalled reliability, mobility, maneuverability and firepower. Today, it makes the ideal fire support weapon for troops engaged under all climatic conditions, including on the most difficult terrain and can fire all NATO standard munitions, including the OE-LP G3 from Nexter Munitions, over a range greater than 17km.
Nexter offers a system for the artillery environment (ballistic processor and inertial navigation system) which is simple and adapted to flexible use of the equipment.
The 105LG1 MkIII can be integrated in all firing control systems (all types of C3I system, etc).
