Sweden has decided to join the research and development programme of the common armoured 6x6 vehicle system (CAVS programme). The agreement was signed by the Swedish materiel administration (FMV), the Ministry of Defence of Finland, the Ministry of Defence of Latvia and Patria.
Sweden is the third country to join the research and development phase of this inter-governmental programme, which was initiated by Finland and Latvia in 2021. The Finnish-Latvian joint 6x6 vehicle programme proceeds on schedule as Patria has already delivered over ten Patria 6x6 armoured wheeled vehicles to Latvia.
The 6x6 armoured vehicle system development will be performed by Patria, which has more than four decades of experience from developing and delivering state-of-the-art protected troop transportation. Patria 6x6 is built on the heritage of the legendary Patria XA series as well as on the success of Patria AMV, both vehicle types currently in use by the Swedish Armed Forces. While Patria 6x6 is primarily designed for troop transport, the vehicle is modular and can be configured for a wide range of different roles.

“We welcome Sweden into this CAVS programme, which will provide the Swedish Armed Forces with the latest protected troop transport technology as well as further increase the affordability of the system for all member nations. Patria has successfully worked with the Swedish Armed Forces and FMV in many programs over the years, and we are really looking forward to getting their competence and experience into the CAVS programme”, says Mats Warstedt, Head of Market Area Nordics at Patria.
