The government of Gabon has purchased a fleet of Maverick internal security vehicles from Paramount Group and successfully deployed them at the Africa Cup of Nations football tournament. Ten Mavericks were bought by the Gabonese authorities, who jointly hosted the football tournament with Equatorial Guinea, for deployment as public order vehicles at stadiums across the country during the competition.

The tournament faced potential security issues following the Arab Spring uprisings of 2011 in North Africa, and the possibilities of terrorist attacks. An armed assault on the Togo team bus at the 2010 Cup of Nations in Angola killed three people and injured two players.
