Africa-based Paramount Group will this week demonstrate its world-leading selection of innovative defence solutions at IDEX 2013, held in Abu Dhabi.


Ivor Ichikowitz, Executive Chairman of Paramount Group, said, “The Middle East is a key region for Paramount Group. A lot has happened in the region since IDEX 2011, the Arab Spring and the war in Syria have dominated the international headlines in 2012 and there are still a myriad of challenging security issues in the region”.


“The Marauder Patrol, which we will be exhibiting in the region for the first time, is particularly well suited to police and special forces that require an agile and quick response vehicle for use in tough environments and protection from grenades and AK-47 rounds,” he added.


On display will be the Marauder, a mine-protected armoured vehicle, a scale model of Africa’s first domestically built aircraft, AHRLAC; the Marauder Patrol, a lightweight and versatile armoured 4x4; Maverick, an internal security vehicle, which is kitted out as a command and control centre; scale models of the Mirage F1 fighter , MI 24 helicopter and multi-purpose naval vessels.
