AMOS on a wheeled combat vehicle
Patria Hägglunds will deliver 18 AMOS mortar vehicles to the Finnish Army. The purchase includes an extensive maintenance and overhaul agreement as well as training equipment.
The contract also includes an option for a further order in the coming years.
AMOS mortar vehicle has been a joint development project of Patria Hägglunds and the Finnish Defence Forces resulting in a mortar system with unique performance.
The development was started in the end of 1990’s and the original contract worth EUR 120 million was signed in 2003. This contract amendment starts the serial production.
AMOS is a modern mortar system offering excellent mobility and ballistic protection. It is able to receive and handle a fire command while moving and to open fire in less than 30 seconds. This new performance ensures the readiness brigades a highly mobile unit capable of indirect fire in order to support the front squad.
The Finnish Army will field the mortar vehicles in 2013.
