The Jurmo was the result of modernisation in the Finnish Navy in the late 90's. It was designed to replace the existing Uisko class landing craft. Its main purpose is landing and transportation operations for the Finnish Coastal Jaegers in all weather conditions. It has good maneuverability and can come to a full stop in only one ship length from top speed. Low draft makes it suitable for amphibious assault even in shallow waters.
The Jurmo can transport 3 tons of cargo or 22 men.
