Sweden Purchases Over 300 Armored Vehicles from Patria

Date: Issue 130 - May 2024

The Swedish Defence Procurement Agency (FMV) has signed a contract to buy 321 six-wheeled armored vehicles from the international defence and technology company Patria. The contract, worth around €470 million, is one of the largest ever for Patria in Sweden. The 321 vehicles, which are called Pansarterrängbil 300 in Sweden, will be stationed at Livgardet regiment in Kungsängen and several other units around the country. Patria has previously delivered 20 6x6 vehicles, which were ordered in a separate contract signed in April 2023. 

The Patria 6x6 vehicle set for delivery is the troop transportation model, which offers the latest vehicle technology, such as state-of-the-art protection for up to 12 crew members.  The vehicle is modular and can be configured for a wide range of different purposes. Apart from troop transport, it will be used for command & control and ambulance duties in Sweden, and it will form an important cornerstone for Sweden’s increasing defence capability.
