Armored Troop Carrier Project to Link Baltic Sea Regional Partners (Olevs Nikers, The Jamestown Foundation)

In late summer, Latvia and Finland officially agreed on a deal for Riga to purchase more than 200 armored personnel carriers (APC) developed by the Finnish company Patria as well as the transfer of technological “know-how,” so that some of the 6×6 wheeled platforms that are part of the order will be manufactured in Latvia. According to the contract, signed on August 30, the first machines will already be at the disposal of the Latvian Land Forces in October 2021 (LSM, August 30).
