Paramount Group all set to manufacture AHRLAC from early 2017

Oct 13, 2016: Paramount Group, South Africa’s private sector defence vendor, is gearing up to produce its lightweight aircraft platform from early 2017. The Advanced High-Performance Reconnaissance Light Aircraft (AHRLAC) – also known as ‘AHRLAC’ – will be manufactured at a new factory under construction in Pretoria. The facility could also be expanded with additional manufacturing units, which will enable Paramount Group to roll out four AHRLAC aircraft per month. In March, Paramount Group and Boeing agreed to collaborate on configuring the Ahrlac into a lightweight attacker – i.e. the Mwari. Paramount Group officials informed Engineering News that the Boeing-equipped Mwari will be marketed to the U.S. as well as U.S.-allied markets in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. A parallel Mwari with non-Boeing subsystems will also be offered for other markets.
