Selon Even Rouault <even.rouault at mines-paris.org>:

Actually, I read too fast. You want to convert all the NITF tiles into a single
NITF file. That is possible too of course. Just add -of NITF in the
gdal_translate command line. Note that the resulting NITF will be larger in size
than the sum of source NITF tiles, as CIB uses the Vector Quantization
compression scheme that is only supported as read-only by GDAL.
