    Decided to start a new thread for all of these news, instead of starting one for each and every one:

    The container is something I hope works and Finland buys.

    New video of the NEMO container:


    At IDEX 2017 Patria introduces the world’s first 120mm mortar system integrated with a container. The Patria Nemo Container includes all the equipment required by a mortar unit in a single package. The Nemo Container is delivered with everything that a mortar unit needs: protection for the crew, the weapon and ammunition. The container has its own power unit and air conditioning. In addition to an access hatch, the container has an escape hatch.

    The customer can select NBC (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical) filtration systems, as well as the desired ballistic protection, made either of steel plates or ceramic armour. High-durability steel plating 8 to 10mm thick adds around three tons to the weight of the container. The container has space for one hundred mortar bombs. It has a crew of three: two loaders and a gunner, who also acts as the commander of the unit. The key benefit of the Patria Nemo Container is its easy mobility, which is unique to mortar systems of this caliber.

    The container can be easily moved into a firing position on a high-speed boat, a ship or on a truck; the container can also fire from any of these carriers and naturally also from the ground. For example, the container’s versatile mobility enables coastal jaeger platoons to relocate this independent firing unit during a mission. This is also an excellent solution for protecting military bases. The container can also be purchased as a separate unit without the weapon system, in which case the customer can make cost-effective use of its existing Nemo equipment.

      Let's build base, command&conquer style!!!

      Seriously, it's a good thing for FOB, with Hesco barrier around them, they will be hard to kill for insurgents without precision weapons. And they will free mobile mortars for others job.

        You can also use it from the back of a truck, meaning you don't necessarily need a specialized vehicle, which probably makes it cheaper.

          I always liked Patria AMV as replacement of ours old BMR600 and VEC´s, but probably it will some Piranha.

            I haven't see this. Was under the impression that it must be grounded to work. So any large truck, wich is stable enough could do the job.
            Okay I buy one for gardening.
