SOFEX 2016

Parabot on guard [SOFEX16D1]

10 May 2016

Towering over the SOFEX outside display, Parabot has marched in from South Africa to stand in salute to the Special Forces in the region, and to the special relationship between its creator, Paramount Group, and Jordan.

Based on elements of the Mbombe 6 armoured fighting vehicle, which has been selected by Jordan’s armed forces, Parabot first appeared in Paramount’s native South Africa, with a special mission of raising awareness of the fight against wildlife poaching. Weighing 1 tonne and standing 9.7m tall, Parabot took 600 man-hours to build.
