Finnish Army receives Sisu GTP 4x4 test vehicles
The Finnish Army has confirmed that it received a delivery of Sisu GTP 4x4 test series vehicles under a €3.8 million ($4.2 million) contract.
Test vehicles will be used to collect information on their performance and usability to ensure that they can fulfil future capability requirements.
The Sisu GTP 4x4 can be used as troop transport and a patrol vehicle. Core components are based on mass-produced truck parts. This keeps life cycle costs low and ensures a wide support network capable of supplying parts domestically and internationally.
The Latvian Armed Forces were set to procure the Sisu GTP 4x4 following a competition launched by the country’s MoD, but the tender was cancelled in 2019.
