Sweden to Join CAVS 6×6 Programme

Multinational Cooperation Continues to Increase

Sweden has officially announced its desire to join the Finnish-led Common Armoured Vehicle System (CAVS) programme, which is also open to other countries with the mutual consent of the participating countries, Patria announced on 14 December.

The programme began in 2019 as a multinational cooperation between Finland, Latvia and Estonia. It then progressed to the research and product development phase with Latvia in autumn 2020. Latvia ordered the first batch of over 200 APC variants in August 2021, the first of which Patria delivered at the end of October. The Finnish MoD and Patria subsequently signed a letter of intent for 160 new APCs for delivery in 2023.

This milestone is significant for the whole programme. Extensive cooperation and network between countries will improve the mobility, cost-effectiveness, cooperation capabilities and maintenance capacity of the participating countries. In addition, the result of this programme is a very cost-effective solution for participating countries,” stated Jussi Järvinen, President of Patria’s Land Business Unit.
