Dingo 2 HD Heavy Duty at DSEI 2011
With already six nations (Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Norway and Austria) making use of the DINGO 2 in more than 15 versions, it has proven its worth in numerous international missions of the NATO, EU or United Nations. Especially in the Afghanistan missions, afflicted by terrorist attacks, the DINGO has repeatedly served as a life saver for its crew.
Increased performance and higher payload
The new HD-version (Heavy Duty) offers a much higher payload of up to 3 tons, whilst the external dimensions remain the same as all other DINGO 2 vehicles. The gross vehicle weight was increased to 14,5 tons. It is based on a Unimog vehicle chassis with a 225kW, 6-cylinder engine and a fully automatic transmission. Hereby a large number of new and mission-specific versions can be created, whilst maintaining the known international protection concept.
The logistical concept of the DINGO 2 ties in perfectly with previously released DINGO versions. The user states can thereby guarantee a continuous and price efficient provisioning for the DINGO vehicle family.
