Mercs on a mission

[ November 2, 2017   //   ]

No African leader’s inauguration would be complete without a fleet of limos and Volga-Dnepr Airlines has duly obliged by shipping no less than 30 Mercs on a flight to Luanda for the inauguration ceremony of Angola’s newly-elected President, Joao Lourenco.

Volga-Dnepr used its two-tier car racking system developed for its An-124-100 freighter fleet to deliver the 90-tonne payload from Leipzig. The cargo included 25 luxury sedans (list price around £60,000), three police cars and two armoured G-class vehicles, around £200,000 for a slightly secondhand one.

Everyone will be pleased to hear that the fleet arrived in Angola in time for the new Presidents’s big day.
