Hello again, guys. This is a shot of some of the latest hardware that the Army possesses – the versatile Patria AMV – Armored Modular Vehicle.
The ride I was offered was more smoother and steadier than in the old tin can XA-185 PASI which hauled me during my conscription.
According to the manufacturer: “The AMV has the best protection level up to 30 mm APFSDS frontal arc and it has a top-class mine protection up to 10 kg TNT. The high payload allows various types of weapon systems to be integrated, from 7.62 mm to 105 mm turret systems or 120 mm AMOS.”
This version is armed with American M2 HB machinegun in remote-operated turret similiar in fashion to that of Stryker APC.
