"Caesar is a new generation of self-propelled artillery. It allows to engage the enemy with high accuracy at a distance from the front line of 20 km and more. At this distance, there are enemy's artillery, reserves, and command posts. Their destruction reduces the offensive capabilities of the enemy. Our gunners quickly mastered the new self-propelled artillery system, actually in 2-3 hours. Sincere thanks to the partners for their assistance! It serves to bring our Victory closer.." - said Valery Zaluzhnyy.
