The program is also open for other countries by the mutual consent of Finland and Latvia. In case the development will lead to actual vehicle system procurements in the future, the common system will enhance mobility, cost-efficiency, interoperability and security of supply of the armies in both countries.

"This is an important opening for us, and we hope to see this new vehicle version in production as part of this program. Patria 6x6 vehicle is our top-notch product combining excellent terrain mobility and ease of use. Long life-span and easy maintenance make it very cost-efficient. It adapts to several missions. Naturally, it would be great if there were also other countries joining forces with Finland and Latvia," says Jussi Järvinen, president of Patria's Land business unit.

Patria 6x6 vehicle combines all the best features of Patria's XA and AMV vehicles. It is simplified, reliable and designed to fill the highest requirements of customers. Its state-of-the-art terrain mobility is guaranteed by an efficient power unit and the independent suspension familiar from the Patria AMV vehicle. Due to the spacious cabin and well-defined functions, it is easy to drive and user training simple. Reliability is underlined by the multitude of commercial components used in the vehicle. Commercial components, long life-span and easy maintenance make the vehicle extremely cost-efficient.

The key areas in Patria's Land business unit include armored wheeled vehicles, mortar systems and related life cycle support services. The business unit employs 230 people in Hämeenlinna and Tampere.
