The Maverick is a light-armored internal security vehicle offered by Paramount Group of South Africa. It is specifically designed for police / law enforcement agencies and security groups to offer point defense protection against unruly mobs and similar scenarios. Its rugged design and robust nature allow it to be used in various mission types including riot control, crowd suppression and patrolling. The crew within rides in climate-controlled comfort and are protected from small arms fire (up to 7.62mm AP), hand grenade attack and fire bombs. An automatic (also manual) fire suppression system further ensures the safety of the occupants.

The Maverick is designed for both paved road travel as well as cross-country. Its mobility in the latter is gained through a strong suspension system and high ground clearance as well as a powerful front-mounted engine. A dozer blade and bull bar allow for obstacles to be breached/cleared if need be. Beyond these features, the truck holds and excellent turn radius for getting out of trouble spots in short order. An onboard camera allows for vision to the rear.

A base crew numbers two and there is seating for an additional twelve. All glass panels are armored and additional plates can be affixed to the vehicle floor. The payload capacity reaches 2,000 kilograms.

Variants in the Maverick family of vehicles include the Police ISV (base offering with optional firing ports and roof-mounted water cannon), SWAT APC (Police Armored Personnel Carrier with improved protection and firing ports), the Mobile Adjustable Ramp System (the vehicle seats a ramp system over the roof) and EOD bomb disposal vehicle.

Operators to date (2017) include Argentina, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Gabon, South Africa and Zambia.
