Patria said it has delivered upgraded XA-180 armored personnel vehicle to the Finnish Army.

The agreement of Mid-Life-Upgrade (MLU) of XA-180 armored personnel carriers was signed by Patria and the Finnish Defence Forces in 2013.

During the project all XA-series vehicles have been modernized and aligned. The implemented modifications included new electrical systems and communications equipment, as well as an updated crew space with improved seating solutions. Also key components, such as engines, power transmission and axles, were inspected and repaired, or replaced if necessary.
