JMSS and partners will start immediately to fabricate the jigs to build the MBOMBE hulls before producing the second tranche of 25 armored vehicles in Jordan. The proposed build will require them to fabricate the hull assembly as all welded sub-assemblies and cut and bend plates will be delivered by Paramount Group. The bolt on assembly will be done in Jordan, as with the major sub-assemblies like the power pack, wheel stations, suspension and hatches.

At SOFEX, Paramount Group and KADDB exhibit the first production vehicle of the Mbombe that will enter in service with the Special Forces of the Jordanian armed forces. The Mbombe was unveiled for the first time in 2010 during the AAD international defense exhibition in South Africa.

The Mbombe is a 6x6 armoured fighting vehicle (AFV) fully designed and developed by the South African Company Paramount Group.

The Mbombe 6 model provides unrivalled protection against landmines, IEDs, side blasts and RPG attacks. This is achieved by revolutionary new technology that provides outstanding mine protection without resorting to the traditional V-shape design.

The Mbombe 6x6 APC (Armoured Personnel Carrier) showed at SOFEX 2016 is fitted with one-man turret designed by a partner Company of KADDB. It's a full armoured turret armed with a 12.7mm heavy machine gun.
