NEMO Navy turreted 120 mm systems @Patria

Patria will equip eight Swedish mortar ships with NEMO Navy turreted 120 mm systems under a new contract signed between the two parties.

Patria is delivering its mortar system to the Swedish armed forces for the first time as a subcontractor to Swede Ship Marine AB. Amphibious units in Stockholm and Gothenburg will soon have eight vessels that can provide artillery support from the sea.

The vessels have been ordered by FMV (Försvarets materielverk) from Swede Ship Marine AB. In addition, Patria is also delivering its NEMO mortar systems for training purposes.

Patria NEMO Navy is a light and compact system, ideal for applications in fast-moving naval fleets and mechanised fleets. The turret can be integrated into a variety of platforms, including Patria 6x6 armoured vehicle, which the Swedish armed forces have already ordered from Patria.
