RIVRON 1, call your office

Everyone who wants a half-dozen of these, raise your hand!
Patria has received an order from the Finnish Navy for a concept study con-cerning a combination of Patria Nemo mortar system and WATERCAT M12, developed by Marine Alutech Oy.

The project targets a possible prototype testing and serial production after the concept study. This project aims to create a new, mobile fire support system with high firepower for the coastal jaeger battalions enhancing their performance in coastal protection. The concept is believed to raise also wide interna-tional interest as a new mortar system application.

Patria Nemo mortar system represents Patria's own product development as part of the 120 mm mortar system product family. Patria Nemo is a single-barrel, unmanned turret system for indirect fire support, but due to its direct fire capability, it can also be used for self-defence. The light and compact turret is possible to be mounted on vessel, light tracked platform aw well as on 6x6 and 8x8 wheeled vehicles.
