Patria has launched a New mortar system to fill the gap between AMOS Twin 120mm Automatic mortar and 120mm towed mortars. New system should be more affordable while still offering many of the AMOSs benefits. As AMOS has Proved to be one of the best systems available, i belive that the new NEMO might be an export success.

Patria Nemo is an unmanned turreted mortar weapon system with excellent signature management. Nemo is a modern and compact system which can be easily mounted onto various tracked and wheeled chassis (6x6, 8x8). Due to its low weight Nemo is also adaptable to light high speed vessels. In addition to indirect fire support Nemo has a capability of direct and MRSI (Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact) fire. The turreted construction offers excellent ballistic and NBC protection for the crew. Thanks to its modular construction Patria Nemo is easy to equip with various options according to customer requirements and combat situations.
