Avibras of Brazil and France’s Nexter have signed an agreement this week to co-operate on the development of the Nexter Caesar artillery system to meet a Brazilian army requirement. The 155mm/52 selfpropelled howitzer is intended to use the same elements as the Astros rocket artillery system developed by Avibras. Nexter has also signed a letter of intent with CILAS for joint research work on the development of carrier-based laser weapons.
