One other six French-made Caesar artillery weapons promised to Ukraine by President Emmanuel Macron in June are “on their manner” to the war-torn nation, France’s international minister mentioned on Tuesday.
Twelve of the weapons, prized for his or her accuracy and mobility, have already been delivered to Ukraine and “the six others are on their manner,” Catherine Colonna advised a Senate fee.
“On the nationwide stage, France is absolutely dedicated regardless that we talk lower than others what we’re doing,” Colonna added. “We made the choice to not talk all of our army contribution.”
In addition to ammunition, France is thought to be offering its Milan anti-tank missiles and Defence Minister Sebastien Lecornu mentioned in late June that Paris could be sending “important portions” of armoured personnel carriers.
Constructed by France’s partly state-owned arms maker Nexter, the Caesar is a 155-mm howitzer mounted on a six-wheeled truck chassis, able to firing shells at ranges of greater than 40 kilometres (25 miles).
