Patria has received a subcontract from Swede Ship Marine to supply NEMO Navy mortar systems for the Swedish Navy’s new amphibious ships.

To be equipped with the Patria NEMO Navy turreted 120mm system, the new mortar vessels will bolster Sweden’s defence capabilities at sea.

Under the contract, Patria will also deliver the NEMO mortar systems for training purposes.

Patria Nordics Market Area head Mats Warstedt said: “We have developed the best possible solution for Swedish amphibious troops together with Swede Ship Marine.

“It is yet another example of Swedish–Finnish corporate cooperation, and it also confirms the unique position of Patria’s NEMO mortar system in the Nordic market, as well as globally.”

Patria NEMO Navy is a light and compact turreted, remote-controlled mortar system. It is an ideal solution for fast-moving naval fleets and mechanised fleets.

Although it is an indirect fire support system, Patria NEMO Navy also provides direct fire capability, which makes it suitable for self-defence against other vessels.

The system can launch Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) fire missions with up to six grenades hitting the target at the same time.

The mortar system provides fire-on-the-move capability and protection from ballistic and nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) threats.

The turret design provides the flexibility to support integration into a variety of platforms, including the Patria 6×6 armoured vehicle.

The subcontract came after Swede Ship Marine received a contract last week from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to supply eight sea-mobile artillery platforms.

Equipped with stabilising grenade launchers, the vessels will be operated by amphibious units in Stockholm and Gothenburg. They will provide artillery support from the sea.

The sea-mobile artillery platforms will enable the capability to quickly regroup to a different location and provide new fire support in a combat scenario, ensuring an edge to the forces on the battlefield.

The artillery platforms are expected to be delivered between 2027 and 2028.
