Patria AMV chosen to be tested in Japan
Patria’s armoured modular vehicle AMVXP has been chosen to a one-year field testing in Japan after a competitive bidding. The Japanese Ministry of Defence will buy two vehicles from Patria for the tests. Two other companies have also been selected to deliver their vehicles to the tests. The final selection is to be expected after the trials.
“This is good news as it is a sign of the high quality and appreciation of Patria vehicles. In case Patria vehicles will be selected to Japan, we are ready for technology transfer project and to set up an assembly line there,” says Petri Jokinen, SVP, Sales and Marketing of Patria’s Land business unit.
