Patria to deliver NEMO mortar systems to Swede Ship Marine AB for the Swedish amphibious forces

Sweden is strengthening its defence capabilities at sea with eight new mortar vessels. These vessels will be equipped with the Patria NEMO Navy turreted 120 mm system.
Patria is delivering its mortar system to the Swedish armed forces for the first time as a subcontractor to Swede Ship Marine AB. Amphibious units in Stockholm and Gothenburg will soon have eight vessels that can provide artillery support from the sea.
The vessels have been ordered by FMV (Försvarets materielverk) from Swede Ship Marine AB. In addition, Patria is also delivering its NEMO mortar systems for training purposes.

Patria NEMO Navy is a light and compact system, ideal for applications in fast-moving naval fleets and mechanised fleets. The turret can be integrated into a variety of platforms, including Patria 6x6 armoured vehicle, which the Swedish armed forces have already ordered from Patria. This combination will be on display when the Swedish army celebrates its 500-year anniversary at Gärdet, Stockholm, on 27 May 2023.

“We have developed the best possible solution for Swedish amphibious troops together with Swede Ship Marine AB. It is yet another example of Swedish–Finnish corporate cooperation, and it also confirms the unique position of Patria’s NEMO mortar system in the Nordic market, as well as globally,” says Mats Warstedt, Head of Market Area Nordics at Patria.
