5th March 2013 - 10:38 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Patria has delivered the first batch of AMV armoured wheeled vehicles to the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV). Sweden ordered 113 of the vehicles under an contract signed in 2010 worth approximately €250 million.

Upon delivering the vehicles, Seppo Seppälä, president of Patria Land Systems and Patria Land Services, said: ‘The production of Patria AMVs has proceeded according to plans, and now the first vehicles are ready for delivery. Patria AMV represents state-of-the-art technology and it combines our extensive experience and know-how, which are highly appreciated by the users of the vehicles.

‘The Swedish troops will receive a modern vehicle which offers excellent mobility and a high level of protection. These new armoured wheeled vehicles represent a continuation for the Patria AMV product family, which has received excellent feedback for its performance in international operations.’

Patria signed a contract with the FMV in 2011 covering the technical maintenance and upgrading of approximately 200 XA-vehicles; the agreement is being updated annually and will also include the life-cycle support of the next generation Patria AMV armoured wheeled vehicles.
