Patria AMV selected for testing by Japanese MoD
The Japanese MoD is to buy and test two Patria Armoured Modular Vehicles (AMVs), the company announced on 11 September.
The vehicles will be put through a one-year field testing process in Japan as part of a competitive bidding programme.
Petri Jokinen, VP sales and marketing of Patria’s Land business unit, said: ‘This is good news as it is a sign of the high quality and appreciation of Patria vehicles. In case Patria vehicles will be selected by Japan, we are ready for a technology transfer project and to set up an assembly line there.’
According to the company, two other companies have been selected to deliver their vehicles for testing. The final selection is expected after the trials.
