CTA International is a Joint Venture company 50%/50% BAE Systems (UK) and Nexter Systems (FR) for the design, development, production, promotion and sale of the Cased Telescoped Armament System (40 CTAS). A dedicated Anglo-French team, focused on 40 CTAS is based in BOURGES (France).

CTA International has developed a revolutionary Cased Telescoped Armament System that has created a paradigm shift in terms of use, logistics and ease of integration of lethality solutions into armoured vehicles either as new build or systems upgrades.

The qualification of the CT Cannon and Ammunition developed through the CTA International joint venture is being jointly funded by both the British and French governments for use by the British and French armies.

This qualification is in line with the schedule and performance requirements of the French Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle programme (EBRC) and the British programmes (Scout and Warrior Capability Sustainment Program WCSP).
