Several French companies have signed contracts to supply various types of weapons to Ukraine. Among them are Caesar howitzers, drones, amphibious vehicles and mine clearance robots.
Ukrainian and French arms manufacturing companies concluded several contracts. One of these concerns additional Caesar self-propelled artillery units, reports Ouest France.
So, under these agreements, KNDS holding will provide Ukraine with six more Caesar self-propelled howitzers. A contract was also signed to ensure the long-term provision of spare parts for these self-propelled guns. This agreement also applies to spare parts for AMX-10RC “wheeled tanks”.
Agreements with the French company CEFA provide for the supply of eight amphibious vehicles for overcoming water obstacles and eight mine clearance robots.
And Delair representatives signed a contract with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine for the supply of drones (the type is not specified).
Thales and Turgis & Gaillard also agreed to jointly develop drones on the Ukrainian side.
The General Director of the Nexter Group, Vice President of the French Defense Industry Association Nicolas Chamoussy, in a comment to Suspilny, said that France tripled the production of the Caesar self-propelled artillery system, and therefore Ukraine could receive more of these howitzers.
Chamoussy also noted that he signed an agreement with Ukraine’s Defense Procurement Directorate. As part of the agreement, all French and Ukrainian companies can sign individual agreements.
Let’s recall that on Saturday Zelensky announced a new format among defense companies – the Alliance of Defense Industries.
