the MKE Yavuz 155mm truck mounted Howitzer was shown at IDEF 17. It is said that our army has a potential interest in acquiring the system because it is cheaper and can be put on our border with Syria instead of using the T-155. The Yavuz uses the Panter field howitzer as it's main gun and in the picture there is a M2 .50 Caliber shown above the cab.

How comparable is it to the French CAESAR?

both are in the 155mm "family". The only difference I can see is the price range. see French gear is extremely expensive.
looks promising. compared to caesar, how much is it?

Will definitely be cost effective. I will assume its way cheaper than the CAESAR. Doesn't Indonesia make its own howitzers?

If you mean towed howitzers then the answer is yes. Pindad Indonesia already build that. But still at prototype stage. As for tracked, 6x6, 8x8 SPH? Nope. not locally produced yet.

Pindad products still focused on it's armored vehicles, firearms and munitions.

Maybe someday...

But not yet.
