The Japanese Ministry of Defence will buy two vehicles from Patria for the tests. Two other companies have been selected to deliver their vehicles to the tests. The final selection is to be expected after the trials. “This is good news as it is a sign of the high quality and appreciation of Patria vehicles. In case Patria vehicles will be selected to Japan, we are ready for technology transfer project and to set up an assembly line there,” says Petri Jokinen, VP, Sales and Marketing of Patria’s Land business unit.

Patria AMVXP is built on the success of Patria AMV in the 8x8 armored wheeled vehicles sector. Patria AMVXP’s mobility is based on an upgraded powerline providing 450 kW engine power together with an Integrated Terrain Control System (ITCS). Patria AMVXP’s electrical power generation is measured to match even future requirements for C4I, Battlefield Management and Situational Awareness Systems. Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS) together with the vehicle’s digital backbone ensures soldiers to have the best possible platform to meet their objectives in every theatre of operation.
