Eurosatory 2018: Patria NEMO Container testing continues

Finland’s Patria is continuing the testing of its NEMO Container solution, with sea trials expected to take place in September.
A company official confirmed that the test firings of the NEMO Container system from a ship are expected to take place in Sweden in September, as part of a testing programme that began last year.

Previous tests have seen the 120 mm mortar fired at maximum charge from both the demounted and stationary truck-mounted positions. The company will also conduct an internal test for firing the system from the truck while on the move in August.
Patria is aiming for the ship-mounted tests to be the last for the NEMO Container system, which will then potentially lead on to a final contract and delivery in early 2019.
