I think they're developing a 'private' facility on the Springbok flats somewhere....

Paramount has a big stand at IDEX where the AHRLAC is being marketed, and the 'base' company issued a press statement about a new integration with Leonardo just a few days ago.

I hear that the Wonderboom facility is dormant, and employees have not been paid since November last year. Liquidation to follow?

Very bad news - unbelievable that they would come so far and then roll over. Perhaps no orders materialised?

A pity a few could not be ordered for SAAF and perhaps even border and fisheries sea patrols? And some countries up to the North these would be great for anti-terrorism operations - but I guess without significant decent orders...
