Patria has today unveiled a new, in-house designed efficient single-barrel 120 mm mortar Patria Nemo at the Eurosatory Exhibition in Paris. Patria Nemo is an unmanned mortar turret suitable for a large variety of platforms available at the market today featuring superior accuracy and agility in all types of manoeuvres.
Nemo is a brilliant example of Patria’s extensive product development work simultaneously as it is yet another proof of Patria’s innovativeness and specialist know-how within weapon systems.
Patria Nemo is a mortar turret with excellent signature management and ballistic protection. As a modern and compact system, Patria Nemo can easily be mounted onto various tracked and wheeled chassis. Due to its low weight, only 1500 kg, Patria Nemo is also adaptable to lightweight, high-speed vessels.
Featuring exceptional accuracy and agility in all types of manoeuvres, Nemo is ready to fire in less than 30 seconds and enables immediate exit from firing position – true performance for an array of shoot & scoot tactics.
Patria Nemo provides both direct and indirect fire support for among others rapid deployment forces. It offers also excellent possibilities for harbour patrol and protection, coast guarding and infantry landing operations.
Patria Nemo is the newest member of Patria’s 120 mm mortar system family filling the gap between traditional towed mortars and the twin-barrelled AMOS. The Nemo mortar turret is developed and designed by Patria. It can fire indirect MRSI fire with 6 grenades hitting the target simultaneously. Nemo can also use direct fire in addition to conventional mortar trajectories. Efficient firing is provided by a semi-automatic loading system and a fully automatic laying system. Nemo can use any type of ammunition intended for 120 mm smoothbore mortars. It can also use guided PGMM ammunition currently under development.
