AMV28A, NEMO Container and Training System Showcased
At IDEX 2017 in Abu Dhabi, 19-23 February, Patria will be focusing its attention on the AMV28A armoured vehicle with Kongsberg PROTECTOR MCT-30 turret, the world’s first 120mm mortar system integrated with a container and a Part Task Trainer (PTT) for the AMV.
The AMV 8×8 vehicle family has enjoyed considerable success, with almost 1,600 ordered by Croatia, Finland, Poland, Slovenia, South Africa, Sweden and the UAE. The AMV28A on display in Abu Dhabi will be fitted with the MCT-30 turret with a commander’s independent weapon station carrying a 12.7mm Maschine Gun (MG), and a JAVELIN ATGW.
The NEMO CONTAINER delivers everything required by a 120mm mortar crew in a single package, including protection, power and air conditioning. With capacity for 100 rounds and options including increased ballistic protection and NBC filtration, the system delivers unique mobility solutions for mortars of this calibre.
The AMV PTT combines a virtual training environment, using Bohemia’s VBS-3 system, with a carefully replicated driver’s position and controls. Extensive networking capabilities and the use of High Level Architecture protocols mean the PTT can provide training for individuals, vehicle crews or entire platoons when linked with other devices.
Patria has also created a new wholly-owned company in Abu Dhabi, Patria Land Middle East Ltd. Strengthening the company’s existing relationships and demonstrating an ongoing commitment to the region, the new company will initially provide direct customer support and will facilitate sales, marketing and offset trading.
