By Defence Industry Europe

Artillery systems manufacturer KNDS France announced that it will establish a Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) centre in Ukraine. This move aims to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which operate the CAESAR self-propelled howitzers.


According to KNDS, the MRO centre is designed to maintain the fleet of howitzers in operational condition. “Its deployment is intended to benefit the local industrial fabric by being staffed with trained and autonomous local personnel. The centre will also accommodate logistics and training capabilities,” KNDS France said in a press release.

KNDS stated that the Armed Forces of Ukraine is the 10th user of CAESAR self-propelled howitzers. According to open sources, 55 CAESAR guns have been officially delivered to the Ukrainian land forces. Furthermore, KNDS France is currently producing 78 howitzers intended for the Ukrainian army.
