Comment bmpd.Kazakhstan State Military Industrial Association National Company JSCKazakhstan Engineering signed an agreement with the South African Paramount Group on organizing the assembly of Paramount armored vehicles in Kazakhstan in 2012. For the organization of production with Paramount Group, a joint venture Kazakhstan Paramount Engineering was established, in which the Kazakh side is represented by Kazakhstan Engineering Distribution LLP (a joint subsidiary of Kazakhstan Engineering and KazPetroMash established in 2003).
It is stated that the enterprise "Kazakhstan Paramount Engineering" will organize the assembly of three types of armored vehicles developed by Paramount Group:
Armored vehicle Marauder class MRAP with a wheel formula 4x4 (the Kazakh name "Arlan");
Police armored vehicle Maverick with a wheel formula 4x4 (Kazakh name "Nomad");
An armored personnel carrier with enhanced anti-mine protection Mbombe with a wheel formula 6x6 (the Kazakh name is "Barys").
It is also declared that "a promising direction is the creation of a modern Barys armored personnel carrier with an 8x8 wheel formula. The machine will have a high level of protection, firepower, mobility and high payload."
Quite curious is the statement quoted by the Director General of Kazakhstan Paramount Engineering, Yerbol Salimov, that the company plans to build 50 Mbombe machines for Jordan. Recall that in February 2015, Paramount Group entered into an agreement with the famous Jordanian design office King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) to jointly produce 50 Mbombe armored personnel carriers for the Jordanian armed forces, which will be the starting customer of this vehicle. However, the information that these cars for Jordan will actually be collected in Kazakhstan appears for the first time.
