Within the framework of the expanded Capacité Motorisée (CaMo) programme, Belgium is procuring nine CAESAR NG self-propelled howitzers. The contract, signed by the Belgian and French defence ministers, has a procurement volume of €62M. Deliveries are to start in 2027. With CaMo, Belgium is leaning heavily on France with over 400 GRIFFON and JAGUAR vehicles delivered.

The CAESAR NG wheeled howitzer is a 155mm artillery gun with a range of 40 km (with standard ammunition) from Nexter on a 6×6 chassis from Arquus. The new generation howitzer has received a protected cabin and a reinforced 340 kW engine. The French procurement agency the DGA had commissioned the development in February and ordered 109 systems for the French Army.
