IDEX 2019: Slow and steady for Patria-Leonardo combo

It could be some time before we hear any more on the Patria AMV XP-Leonardo Hitfact turret combination as trials of the vehicle configuration are likely to have to wait until the end of 2019. 

A company spokesperson estimated that trials of the new vehicle-weapon combination would not start until the end of 2019, citing one of the reasons as the lengthy travel period from Abu Dhabi to Finland, Patria’s home country.

IDEX 2019 was the first time the company showcased the Patria AMV XP 8x8 with the Leonardo Hitfact 120mm turret.
