Technical Data

Armament
The Dingo is fitted on the roof with a Krauss-Maffei Wegmann weapon station armed with an externally mounted 12.7 mm .50 machine gun that can be aimed and fired under complete armor protection. The German DINGO 2 will also come equipped with a light remote weapon station (RWS) of the type FLW 100/FLW 200. The vehicle crew is thereby capable of operating the weapon station precisely and effectively from within the protected interior of the vehicle, even at high speeds or in rough terrain.
Design and protection
High hard steel and ballistic glass safeguards the crew from anti-tank and anti-personnel mines, as well as from 7.62 AP and artillery fire. Additional composite armor can be added to increase the ballistic protection if is required. All seats have been designed with special shock absorption capability to prevent crew injury in the event of a mine blast. And importantly, with the increasing use of nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) weapons, an integrated NBC overpressure system is standard. The high level of protection has proven its worth during numerous terrorist assaults and has steadily protected the lives of the crew.
Mobility
The engine compartment of the Dingo 2 is at the front, the heavily armored safety crew compartment is in the center and the cargo/load area is at the rear. The engine compartment can be easily accessed for routine checks by simply folding the hinged bonnet forwards. With the success of Dingo 1, Kraus Maffei began the development of the Dingo 2, which is mounted on the technologically advanced DaimlerChrysler UNIMOG U5000 Chassis. Offered in two wheelbase configurations, 10’7” and 12’6”. the Dingo 2 travels at speeds up to 90 km/h on the highway and has a range of up to 1000 km.
Accessories
Dingo 2 small footprint and lightweight facilitate quick air transportation by a variety of medium and heavy lift aircraft, including C-130, C-160 and CH-47. The Dingo 2 crew area is comfortably and conveniently equipped to aid in crew mission readiness. Instruments and control panels are well laid out and illuminated, and are accompanied by optical and acoustic warning signals for improved monitoring. The latest version of the German Dingo 2 is fitted with a new hardtop at the rear of the vehicle, which replaces the common canvas cover of the storage space.
