Patria won the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) contract for 113 armoured vehicles in 13 August 2010. The Swiss competitor has filed a complaint to the Stockholm County Administrative Court.

- It is unfortunate that the process is delayed. We respect the legal course, but if this causes long-term disruptions there is a risk of this complicating the possibilities for the Swedish armed forces to use the security equipment they need.  We participated in the tender on the same terms as the other participants and we believe that it was a thorough and correct process conducted by FMV, states Mr Seppo Seppälä from Patria.
