It's official: Denmark has handed over all its CAESAR self-propelled howitzers to the Ukrainian Armed Forces
The Ukrainian Defence Ministry has said that Denmark has handed over all its CAESAR SAUs to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Here's What We Know
The Ministry does not say how many we are talking about, but Denmark had 19 units in service. By the way, these systems differ from the ones we previously received from France. The matter is that the Danish version of the CAESAR SAU has more weight, improved armour and increased ammunition from 18 to 36 rounds.

Caesar is a French 155mm self-propelled gunboat designed to destroy manpower, artillery batteries, bunkers, and minefields or field barriers. The SAU has a maximum firing range of 42km, although a projectile with a range of up to 70km has recently been introduced for installation. The Caesar SAU is capable of firing 6 rounds per minute. It is operated by a crew of 4-5 people. Ukraine currently has 37 such units in service.
