“The production of Patria AMVs has proceeded according to plans, and now the first vehicles are ready for delivery. Patria AMV represents state-of-the-art technology and it combines our extensive experience and know-how, which are highly appreciated by the users of the vehicles. The Swedish troops will receive a modern vehicle which offers excellent mobility and a high level of protection.

These new armoured wheeled vehicles represent a continuation for the Patria AMV product family, which has received excellent feedback for its performance in international operations”, said the President of Patria Land Systems and Patria Land Services, Seppo Seppälä to Lena Erixon, the Director General of FMV, when delivering the first vehicles.

Partnership with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration

The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration is one of the biggest users of Patria’s armoured wheeled vehicles. Early in the year 2011, the partnership agreement was signed between Patria and FMV, covering the technical maintenance and upgrading of approximately 200 XA-vehicles purchased earlier. The agreement is being updated annually and is also going to cover the life-cycle support of the next generation Patria AMV armoured wheeled vehicles. The partnership agreement is strategically important to both parties as it enables both Patria and FMV to combine their best competences to offer high-quality services to the vehicles’ end-user, The Swedish Armed Forces.
