KNDS France, the main provider of artillery systems for Malaysia and a strategic industrial partner for the Malaysian defence industry, is participating at the DSA 2024 Exhibition 2024 taking place from 06-09 May in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The achievement of KNDS’s industrial partnership initiated in 2018 with the assembly and delivery of 18 units of 105mm LG 1 MKIII howitzers to the Malaysian Army reflects a mutual commitment to enhancing the nation’s defense capabilities but also signifies the excellence of local skills in the defense industry.

Today, KNDS France, together with ADSSB, commit to expand their partnership at an upper level in addressing the 155mm CAESAR self-propelled howitzer to be assembled and integrated in the industrial facilities of ADSSB in Segamat, State of Johor.

The installation of the CAESAR not only provides additional strength to the Malaysian Army but also contributes to the local economy by creating job opportunities and enhancing expertise in the field of armaments. KNDS and ADSSB are committed to continuing its efforts to advance Malaysia's defense industry and support national security initiatives.

In a pro-active action, both companies will also address selected export markets for the 105mm LG1 MKIII, creating additional value to the Malaysian eco-system.
