Introduction

The Patria AMV28A is the latest version of the highly successful Finnish AMV family. Unveiled for IDEX 2017, this new model appears to be developed for amphibious landing operations.

In May 2017, Patria completed and successfully passed amphibious testing in Southern Finland. Testing was completed in wind speeds between 10 to 13 m/s with 1 vehicle at its maximum combat weight of 28 tonnes and a second vehicle fitted with the Kongsberg Protector MCT-30 turret.

Background

In May 2017, Patria completed and successfully passed amphibious testing in Southern Finland. Testing was completed in wind speeds between 10 to 13 m/s with 1 vehicle at its maximum combat weight of 28 tonnes and a second vehicle fitted with the Kongsberg Protector MCT-30 turret.

The AMV28A is based on the standard AMV hull, but features an extended hull for larger size IFV turrets, such as the MCT-30, whilst retaining the same width of 2.85 meters.

The AMV28A is the first of the AMV Family to feature a modular bolt-on marine environment amphibious kit. This enables the vehicle to operate in “sea-stage 3” conditions with a Governed Weight of 28 tonnes.

It features an automatized amphibious mode and rear mounted propellors giving a Max. swimming speed of up to 10km/h. The hull has a protective coating for repeated use in marine enviroment.

The vehicle as is fitted with Air-Conditioning and a desertized Scania Powerpack and retains the modular armored capability of the original Patria AMV.
