Description

In September 2013, at the DSEI defense exhibition in London (UK), the Finnish Company Patria has launched its new 8x8 armored vehicle concept AMV XP built on experience and verified solutions based on the Patria AMV, which has been the unrivaled market leader of modern 8x8 armored vehicles for the last decade with nearly 1,400 units contracted, selected by seven different nations and combat-proven in a real mission environment. A spacious interior and high payload carrying capability provide a platform for future customer variants, allowing the simultaneous integration of weapon systems, protection and crew equipment. Vehicles' electrical power generation is measured to match the future requirements for C4I, Battlefield Management and Situational Awareness Systems. Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) together with the vehicle’s digital backbone ensure 21st-century soldiers to have the best possible platform to meet their objectives in every theatre of operation now and in the future. The new vehicle concept at DSEI is the first concept vehicle and its extensive testing will be continued after the exhibition. A prototype of the AMV XP was delivered to Slovakia in 2017 and the country has ordered 81 of these armored vehicles for delivery until 2024. According to a press release published on October 5, 2020, the 8x8 armored combat vehicle, AMV XP manufactured by the Finnish company Patria has been selected for the second phase of the Bulgarian vehicle acquisition program based on a tender phase. According to information published by the trafficnews.jp website on December 15, 2021, in December 2021, Japan Ground Forces have conducted field tests with the Finnish-made AMV XP designed and manufactured by the company Patria.

Technical Data

Armament
At DSEI 2013, the Patria AMV XP 8x8 armored vehicle concept was fitted with a Saab Trackfire remote weapon station (RWS), but the vehicle can incorporate a variety of weapons up to 120 mm including the Patria Nemo 120 mm mortar system. The weapon station Trackfire is armed with a 25x59mm dual-feed chain gun coupled to a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun. The auxiliary armament includes a Venom V-10 non-lethal tube launch munitions system. Consisting of the Fire Control Panel (FCP), Control Handle (CH) and display, the gunner interface is simple to operate, ergonomic, and multi-functional. The menu structure has maintained a flat hierarchy to ensure that the operator can retain a visual perspective of the gunner display whilst having access to all primary functionality of the system. For maximum crew protection, the Trackfire RWS operations can be performed from below armor or deck, including ammunition feed from below armor. A low ammunition warning can be coupled with a fire inhibit signal to ensure that a new belt of ammunition can be linked to the existing belt.

Design and protection
The layout of the Patria AMV XP 8x8 armored vehicle concept is very similar to the Patria AMV, with the power pack at the front, driver front left, weapon station in the middle on top hull, and troop's compartment at the rear. The vehicle has a modular vehicle architecture allowing easy adaptation to various roles and providing built-in growth potential for future customer requirements. The vehicle uses a modular ballistic, mine and IED-protection system which can be adapted according to customers’ requirements. The vehicle is ready to be used with future protection technologies as well as future soldier equipment.
Mobility
Unrivalled mobility of the Patria AMV XP is based on an upgraded powerline providing 450 kW engine power together with an unforeseen Integrated Terrain Control System (ITCS). The engine is coupled to an automatic transmission with 7 forward and 1 reverse gear. The vehicle is able to reach a maximum road speed of 100 km/h with a maximum cruising range from 600 to 1,000 km. The prototype vehicle has a 13-ton payload at 30-ton gross vehicle weight provides the needed payload capacity without sacrificing off-road mobility. The Patria vehicle concept is able to negotiate slopes up to 60%, side slopes to 30%, climb a vertical obstacle of 0.7m and natural and engineered trenches of 2.1m maximum. The vehicle is fitted with a fully independent suspension with a double-wishbone on every wheel station. The steering is hydraulically assisted with mechanical linkage for the 1st and 2nd axel.
Accessories
The Patria AMV XP wheeled armored vehicle is also equipped with a state of the art LED light technology used in the vehicle with improved reliability and performance. Vehicles' electrical power generation is measured to match the future requirements for C4I, Battlefield Management, and Situational Awareness Systems. The vehicle is fully amphibious and can swim in the water at a maximum speed of 10 km/h.
