Paramount Group will present the last technology of armored vehicle, the Mbombe.
 
 
Paramount Group, Africa's largest privately owned defence business and manufacturer of some of the best armoured vehicles in world will demonstrate why its revolutionary new infantry fighting vehicle is at the vanguard of new design and technology. Visitors to stand 931 at International Armoured Vehicles, held at the Excel Centre, London, from 7 to 10 February 2011, will discover Mbombe - the real new breed of infantry fighting vehicle.
     
     

Ivor Ichikowitz, Executive Chairman of the Paramount Group, said: "Europe is waking up to the fact that African manufacturers, scientists and engineers are producing world class products for the global defence sector. Defence experts and buyers are very excited by Mbombe. Many believe that this is the IFV that forces from across the world have been waiting for, whether engaged in peacekeeping or counter insurgency."

"At Paramount Group we have the latest technology and innovation to deliver groundbreaking design to achieve our goal of being first at developing 'new breed' of armoured vehicles.

"We are attending International Armoured Vehicles 2011 to show the European market that Africa has a long tradition of armoured vehicle design, the skills and expertise to provide the very best in armoured vehicle technology, offering superb protection, reliability and affordability."

Mbombe is six wheeled and has a lower profile than the US Army's Cougar, using a revolutionary mine resistant flat hull. A move that takes vehicle design away from the traditional V-shaped hull, also a South African innovation.
