EXPERTISE AND UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

CTA International has developed a revolutionary 40 mm Cased Telescoped Armament System (40 CTAS) providing a paradigm shift in terms of use, logistics and ease of integration into armoured vehicles for either new build or systems upgrades.

CTA International continues to develop the 40 CTAS, including the integration of complex firing functions and the design of new and unique ammunition that will meet the emerging threat.
