Patria Nemo Container in sea testing
Patria’s Nemo Container mortar turret has successfully completed test firings in demanding sea conditions on board a fast supply vessel in Sweden.
The tests focused on the functionality of Nemo in sea conditions with various firing modes, including firing on the move; as well as testing the interface of Nemo and the vessel in harsh sea conditions and while performing fire missions.
The 20ft sea container with 120mm turreted mortar system was able to operate as a mobile firing unit, both with direct and indirect fire. It also demonstrated its rapid response, accuracy, shoot and scoot, firepower and protection capabilities.
