Spain wants to give up M109A5 howitzers and purchase CAESAR self-propelled artillery units

The Spanish Army is ready to purchase French howitzers CAESAR instead of self-propelled artillery units M109A5.

What is known

The Spanish Army now has 95 howitzers in service M109A5. The military is ready to replace them with CAESAR due to the better range and higher mobility of French self-propelled artillery units on wheeled chassis.

So far Spain has not disclosed information about how many CAESAR howitzers it wants to buy. However representatives of the Spanish Army have already gone to France to study self-propelled artillery systems in the 40th Artillery Regiment.
