Patria Nemo

The Council of State of Finland granted an export licence for 36 Patria Nemo mortar systems. These had been selected as one of the weapon systems for the General Dynamics Land Systems vehicle, as part of the US Government Foreign Military Sales (FMS) project.

With a value of over ˆ100 million, the contract will have a major employment effect for Patria and its Finnish subcontractors. Earlier this year Patria has already delivered six mortar systems to General Dynamics for testing. The actual deliveries will take place between 2012 and 2013.

Patria is the global market leader in turreted mortar systems. The project will provide an excellent reference for Finnish know-how.

”Obtaining an export license is a major step forward for this technology. It is also an important waypoint in efforts to market Finnish mortar systems internationally", states Seppo Seppälä, President of Patria Land Services, emphasising the importance of the project.

The Patria Nemo is a modern mortar system featuring excellent signature management and ballistic protection .The United Arab Emirates Navy has already chosen the Patria Nemo.

Patria is a trusted provider of defence, security and aviation life-cycle support services and technology solutions. Patria is owned by the state of Finland (73.2 %) and the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS N.V.) (26.8 %).
