Paramount Group Introduces Marauder Patrol Vehicle
12:00 AM, September 18, 2012
Africa-based Paramount Group has launched its latest product the Marauder Patrol at Africa’s leading defence exhibition – the AAD 2012. The Marauder Patrol vehicle is based on COTS (commercial off the shelf) driveline components. It has a deliberately non-aggressive appearance – making it perfect for police, peacekeepers or special forces operating in sensitive environments. The Marauder Patrol is protected to STANAG Level 1 ballistic protection, meaning it can stop shell fragments as well as 7.62mm and 5.56mm bullets. For those customers wanting extra protection, there is the choice to increase ballistic to STANAG Level 2, without impacting the performance of the vehicle. Miles Chambers, Business Development Director of Paramount Group, said, “Marauder Patrol breaks new ground in the utility vehicle market because it offers high levels of protection combined with unprecedented mobility and supportability. This makes it ideal for police and special operations forces conducting patrol-type operations, on or off-road”. “As governments seek to cope with a range of new security challenges, it is vehicles such as this that give them the flexibility to respond to a variety of threats without having to rely on more expensive or aggressive looking large scale armoured vehicles,” he added.
