Patria AMV XP will be sent to Japan as part of the testing phase of the tender the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces commenced to replace the aging Type 96 armored personnel carriers. Other vehicles in the tender are General Dynamics LAV 6.0 and an undisclosed 8 × 8 Armored Vehicle prototype designed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
Patria AMVXP 8×8 has been developed to provide optimal modularity of components and to be adaptable for a wide range of versions without changing basic vehicle systems.
Patria AMVXP is available in three different models:
- Basic model provides the platform for following variants: armoured personnel carrier (APC), infantry fighting vehicle (IFV), command vehicle, ambulance, reconnaissance vehicle, anti-tank guided missile vehicle (ATGM), armoured repair and recovery vehicle (ARRV), and finally, the 120 mm Patria Nemo mortar system.
- High Roof Model provides extra space at the rear of the vehicle (34 cm higher than the basic model), which is ideal if the vehicle is used as a command, C4I, ambulance or workshop vehicle.
- Heavy Weapon Platform has been optimised to carry large-calibre weapon systems such as the 120 mm AMOS mortar system or the 105/120 mm mobile cannons (MGS)
AMVXP is available with highest level modular ballistic protection and potential for state-of-the-art active defence systems. With AMVXP you can protect your troops against IED, NBC, ballistic threats of up to level K5+. AMVXP´s mine protection is scalable even above STANAG level 4a/4b. AMVXP’s optimized shape, low radar and thermal signature enable AMVXP’s superior stealth features.
AMVXP has a state-of-the-art fully independent hydropneumatic suspension system and extremely strong chassis construction for high-speed off-road driving. AMVXP’s easy to use and unrivaled mobility is based on high-performance powerline together with an Integrated Terrain Control System (ITCS) and optional rear-axle steering for enhanced manoeuvrability. It is supported by large wheel size and CTIS for low ground pressure, Run Flat system and ABS. AMVXP is available with amphibious capability for water crossing and amphibious landing operations.
AMVXP‘s chassis characteristics enable the use of any weapon system needed for engaging targets rapidly and with pinpoint accuracy. AMVXP is ideal for integration of medium calibre weapon systems, direct fire cannon systems up to 120 mm, Patria Nemo 120 mm turreted mortar system and anti-tank or anti-aircraft missile systems. AMVXP’s high payload with large internal volume enables carrying all weapon systems, ammunition and the crew equipment according to your mission needs.
