Patria Launches 6×6 Armored Vehicle at Eurosatory 2018

: Jun 14, 2018 - : 3:26 am

Patria has launched a new armored transport vehicle at the ongoing Eurosatory 2018.

Patria 6X6 is a multipurpose transport vehicle, and the newest entrant to the company’s fa mily of armored vebhicles.   The chassis structure is based on the same components as the Patria AMV 8X8, but with one less axle. The vehicle is driven by all three axles and steered from the front two, or all three, depending on its equipage. Optional equipage can be added to bring the 6X6 closer to the AMV.

The vehicle can be equipped with a variety of weapon systems and, if required, the Patria Nemo 120mm mortar system. The 6X6 has a maximum load-bearing capacity of 8.5 tonnes. The protection of the armoured 6X6 reaches STANAG level 4, which means protection against even heavy machine gun fire. Due to the 6×6’s good load carrying capacity, it has better protection than previous Pasi APCs.

Boarding and leaving the 6X6 is easy. In addition to the crew of 2-3 persons, the vehicle has seats for ten combat troops, depending on its purpose and layout. The driver can easily adapt to the controls in the 6X6’s truck-like cab. The vehicle meets NATO standards and is ideally suited to e.g. peacekeeping missions anywhere in the world.

“There has long been demand on the market for a successor to the Pasi Armoured Personnel Carrier, which has been in production since the 80s,” said Janne Räkköläinen, Vice President, Vehicle Systems, Patria’s Land business unit. “The new 6X6 brings the basic principles behind its predecessor into the present day, with its multifunctional transport capacity and modularity that adapts easily to the customer’s needs.”
