The special version of lightweight version of Patria’s Advanced Mortar System can be hidden inside a shipping container.

The special shipping container version of  NEMO 120mm mortar system can be mounted on a vessel’s deck, on a pier, on a flatbed truck or sat directly on the ground. From those positions, NEMO can be put to work in fire modes that are direct (like a tank) and indirect (like an artillery piece). In the latter, it can have five rounds impact a target area all at once via Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) firing solutions calculated by the gun’s computer system.

According to сompany sources, Patria has developed a containerised system for its 120 mm mortar system, with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Navy to be the launch customer.

Inside it holds 100 rounds of various 120mm rounds, and is operated by three people—two loaders and one gunner who is also the commander. A self-contained air conditioning system provides environmental control and protection against nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) attacks.
