The company’s website said the Nemo is a turreted, remote-controlled 120 mm mortar system. It is an indirect fire support system, but due to its direct fire capability, it can also be used for self-defense. Patria Nemo can also fire Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) fire missions where upto 5 grenades are hitting the target simultaneously.

Turret and armoured chassis protect the crew against ballistic, mine and IED threats and battlefield contaminants within the protection level of the platform vehicle. The light and the compact turret is easily installable on light, tracked chassis or wheeled armoured vehicles in the 6×6/8×8 class.

Patria develops, markets and manufactures turreted mortar systems. Core product is Patria Nemo mortar system and its life cycle support services. Patria has decades of experience in developing and producing large caliber weapon systems.
