Patria NEMO is a turreted, remote-controlled 120 mm mortar system for the needs of modern warfare and crisis management, which calls for mobility, protection, and accuracy. It is an indirect fire support system, but due to its direct fire capability, it can also be used for self-defence.

Patria NEMO is able to fire Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) fire missions where up to 6 grenades hit the target simultaneously. Turret and armoured chassis protect the crew against ballistics, mines and IED threats and battlefield contaminants within the protection level of the platform vehicle. The light and compact turret is easily installable on light, tracked chassis or wheeled armoured vehicles in the 6x6/8x8 class or Navy vessels.

Patria NEMO features modular design and therefore it guarantees maximum flexibility and capability for further upgrades for diverse requirements to meet the specific needs of modern warfare and threats in changing environment. Patria NEMO can be used for self-defence and various indirect fire missions. Impressive fire support and rapid response with high crew protection – all in one.

Comprehensive fire control by sensor-to-shooter operations

Our indirect fire system enables the highest possible readiness for battle and crisis management. Thanks to NEMO’s network of sensors and situational awareness, our fire control system enables sensor-to-shooter operations. The fire control system provides fire support plans and fire missions, which are transmitted via tactical data network to the command-and-control systems. Fire support decisions are made at the fire direction centre, and the NEMO units execute the fire missions – right on target. Our forward observer system is used for identifying the target and for acquiring a full view of the situation on the battlefield.


Patria’s indirect fire system for crisis management consists of:

  •   weapons
  •   vehicles
  •   systems with integrated support functions
  •   tactical weather services » fire control system
  •   communication systems
  •   forward observer functions
