Increased performance and higher payload. The new HD (Heavy Duty) version of the DINGO provides a significantly higher payload of up to 3 tonnes - with the same outer dimensions as the previous DINGO 2. The gross vehicle weight has increased to 14.5 t. Based on a new Unimog chassis with a powerful 225 kW, 6-cylinder engine and a fully automatic transmission, a variety of new mission-specific variants can be realized while maintaining the well-known and leading international protection concept. The logistical concept of the DINGO 2 HD seamlessly builds upon the already established DINGO versions. This allows the user nations (Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Norway and Austria) to continue with a consistent and cost-effective maintenance of all of their vehicles from the DINGO family.

The DINGO 2 Best of its kind

The DINGO 2 is considered the safest and best protected wheeled vehicle in its class. Its innovative safety concept offers its passengers the highest possible protection against anti-tank and anti-personnel mines, IEDs, small arms and fragments from artillery and mortar ammunition. In addition, the DINGO 2 comes equipped with a protection kit against NBC agents.

One platform multitudinous capabilities

The secrets to the success of the DINGO 2 are its first-class protection and mobility characteristics and its variable equipment concept, which allows specific equipping for current as well as future mission profiles. Just like the broad range of equipment options, the protection cell can also be adapted to suit the needs of the customer. The patrol vehicle cell is offered in various designs for up to 8 occupants, while the large volume cell features doors to the sides and rear and can accommodate a variety of equipment such as a command post, NBC reconnaissance or ambulance.

High performance. Low lifecycle costs. Low maintenance

As an ultra-modern wheeled vehicle, the DINGO 2 is not only well prepared for a variety of mission profiles and extreme terrain, but also for a cost-effective long service life. Its basis is a militarized UNIMOG chassis. This results in low cost for training and instruction of drivers and mechanics. Another economic benefit is also the low-maintenance, durable diesel engine. In addition, the KMW service department offers worldwide vehicle maintenance - directly in the operational area - and also supports the supply of spare parts. Thus, each time the full performance of the vehicles is ensured.

Deployed all over the world

With the DINGO 2, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann have developed a convincing response to the numerous global threat scenarios. More than 800 units of this powerful general protection transport vehicle are under contract for 6 Nations.
