The Croatian Ministry of Defence and defence group Patria have amended a manufacture and delivery contract for Patria AMV 8×8 wheeled armoured vehicles.

The Croatian MoD awarded the contract to Patria to deliver 126 AMVs in July 2010, but this has been amended due to financial reasons.

The number of vehicles will be the same but versions will be updated to meet the requirements of the MoD, according to the amendment.

According to the revised contract, production will be carried out in Croatia by Patria’s local consortium partner Duro Dakovic Special Vehicles (DDSV).

The vehicles are scheduled to be delivered by the end of 2012.
