DIMDEX 2016: Patria NEMO Navy

Patria showcased a naval version of its remotely-controlled 120mm turreted smoothbore mortar system, named Patria Nemo Navy. It can be mounted on fast moving patrol/attack craft and landing boats, including the WATERCAT M12 Nemo and WATERCAT M18 AMC from Finland's boatbuilder Marine Alutech. Patria expects a clear tendency whereby the success of small boat operations, also including High-Speed Interceptor Craft (HSIC), will be dependent upon their own means of firepower and superior accuracy. A significantly increased range means that the mortar unit is able to provide indirect fire support to engage a "more distant target without the need to change the firing position", Patria explained.
