On September 17, 2019, Army Recognition already published that Patria’s armored modular vehicle AMVXP had been selected to perform a one-year field testing in Japan after a competitive bidding. The Japanese Ministry of Defence woud buy two vehicles from Patria for the tests. Two other companies had been selected to deliver their vehicles to the tests. The final selection is to be expected after the trials.

Patria AMVXP is built on the success of Patria AMV in the 8x8 armored wheeled vehicles sector. The Patria AMV (Armored Modular Vehicle) is an 8×8 multi-role military vehicle. Its main feature is its modular design, which allows the incorporation of different turrets, weapons, sensors, or communications systems on the same carriage. Designs exist for different APC vehicles (armoured personnel carrier) and IFV versions (infantry fighting vehicle), communications versions, ambulances and different fire support versions, armed with large caliber mortar and gun systems. The vehicle has a very good level of mine protection and can withstand explosions of up to 10 kilograms (22 lb) TNT. The AMV has protection levels up to 30 mm APFSDS frontal arc. Another important feature is the very good mobility (combining speed, agility, and crew comfort) in rough terrain, enabled by the sophisticated but rugged hydropneumatic suspension adjusting each wheel individually.

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.
