Undergone vigorous test firings on Sisu ETP E13 8×8
Patria’s NEMO Container, showcased for the first time at the IDEX 2017, has completed successfully its first test firings on truck platform.
Patria NEMO Container was undergoing vigorous test firings both on a Sisu ETP E13 8×8 off-road truck as well as stand-alone on the ground in Finland. These tests were mainly concentrated around testing the integration of the NEMO mortar system into a sea container – in other words testing the interface of the turreted mortar systems and the 20ft sea container. Also, another important part was testing the interface of the Patria NEMO Container and Sisu ETP E13 8×8 off-road truck.
Patria NEMO Container was performing as expected and the ground breaking concept of the 20ft sea container with 120mm turreted mortar system was proving its ingenuity by combining unforeseen flexibility/mobility & firepower. It is able to operate as a stand-alone firing unit, both with direct as well as with indirect fire, thus being ideal for camp protection. More importantly NEMO Container proved it is mobile and agile as its “brothers” integrated directly onto land (PatriaNEMO ) or naval platforms (Patria NEMO Navy).
