Paramount Group 2019 signed a contract to provide Togo with 20 Mbombe 4 armored vehicles under a rearmament plan that saw French Arquus and another South African company Osprea competing for the contract.
At the time, Paramount Group launched the next generation armored personnel carrier, Mbombe 4 at the United Arab Emirates at IDEX 2019, the largest defense and security Expo in the Middle East. Founder and Executive Chairman of Paramount Group Ivor Ichikowitz disclosed that Paramount had secured its first customer during the IDEX 2019.
The Mbombe 4 offers very high levels of ballistic and mine protection (e.g. crew compartment STANAG 4569-Level 3, blast protection STANAG 4569-Level 4a & 4b) and protection against a 50kg TNT side blast or IED/roadside bomb. Its applique armour packages can provide higher levels of ballistic protection (up to level 4) and mine protection as required by the customer.
