The Swedish Army has officially received the first batch of new Patria's six-wheeled armoured vehicles, in Sweden called Pansarterrängbil 300. The vehicles, which were manufactured in Finland, will be part of the current expansion of Swedish Armed Forces.

 

These Patria 6×6 armoured vehicles will be based at Livgardet regiment in Kungsängen, near Stockholm and further south in Sweden. An official hand-over ceremony marking the delivery took place at Ground Combat School in Kvarn on 26 October, 2023.

Apart from Sweden, Patria’s 6×6 solution is already in use in Finland and Latvia, and Germany has joined the Patria 6×6 -based Common Armoured Vehicle System (CAVS) programme. These 6×6 deliveries further manifest that Sweden is one of the most important export markets for Patria.

Pansarterrängbil 300 which is manufactured in Finland, with significant contribution also from Swedish industry, is a prime example of the benefits of technical cooperation between countries,” says Mats Warstedt, Senior Vice President of Market Area Nordics at Patria.
