Nigerian Air Force inducts Marauder vehicles
Paramount Group’s Marauder armoured vehicle has been inducted into service by the Nigerian Air Force, the company announced on 28 March.
The 15t Marauder can be configured as either a personnel carrier or combat vehicle capable of achieving a maximum speed of 120 km/hr over challenging terrains. It features a double-skinned hull throughout its cabin and crew compartment to protect it against a wide range of kinetic attacks.
The vehicle can sustain a side blast (IED or roadside bomb) equivalent to 50kg of explosives. The Marauder is equipped with specially designed anti-blast seats, which prevent injury from the extreme acceleration of a side blast or mine blast under the hull.
The Nigerian Marauders are also equipped with a Jordanian-made snake head turret fitted with a 7.62mm machine gun.
