Patria and Japan Steel Works Ltd. (JSW) have entered into an agreement that permits the manufacturing of Patria AMV XP 8x8 vehicles within Japan.

The agreement enables local production in accordance with Japan Ground Self-Defense Force’s Wheeled Armored Personnel Carrier (WAPC) programme.

In December 2022, Patria AMV XP 8x8 vehicle was selected by the programme to replace Type-96 8x8 Armoured Personnel Carrier vehicles that are currently in use. Neither the number of new vehicles nor the value of the agreement are disclosed at this stage.
