CAPETOWN, SOUTH AFRICA (BNS): The Paramount group of South Africa will unveil a brand new - armoured vehicle Mbombe - at international defence exhibition ‘Africa Aerospace Defence-2010’ (AAD-2010), which began on Tuesday in Cape Town, South Africa.

According to the company, the new innovative designs of the vehicle will offer better protection against IEDs than any other vehicles currently in use by NATO forces in Afghanistan.

“Coalition forces have thousands of armoured vehicles in Afghanistan and Iraq, but Paramount Group has designed a groundbreaking new vehicle that is set to take the market by storm,” Ivor Ichikowitz, Executive Chairman of the Paramount Group said.

Mbombe is a six-wheeled infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) with a revolutionary mine-resistant flat hull (rather than v-shaped). The new shape will maintain a low profile of the vehicle in battlefield comparing to any other MRAP vehicles, a solution which has been sought for many years.
