In march 2008, The German Defence Company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann announced the order for the delivery of 48 Dingo 2 to Luxembourg's armed forces.
1. Armored DINGO 2 platform for high mobility & crew protection against mines, ballistic impacts,improvised explosive devices (IED) and NBC threats.
2. Commander position providing Full Situation Awareness. The VESTA On Platform Computer (OPC)
connects the various sub systems to each other to fulfill all the mission requirements. The OPC interacts with the Advanced Mission System to prepare, carry out and debrief the mission. The mission system includes the Battlefield Management System supported by a robust Navigation System (GPS + Inertial Platform) and the Platform Management System with main status of all sub systems on a single 15" touch screen.
3. Tactical Platform Intercommunication System providing Voice & Data VHF and HF Networks between PRV platforms and the next level of command.
4. Remote Controlled Weapon Station with .50 machine gun, IR + daylight observation modules on a stabilized platform.
5. Wired access for remote control of radios and vehicle tactical LAN extension.
6. Left and right Laser Warning Receivers providing 360° coverage.
7.Multi Media Communication Means including GSM, Iridium and provisions for UHF.
8. Optronic Head (Margot 5000) with Thermal Imager, CCD camera and Laser Range Finder on a 4 m collapsible mast. When the mast is collapsed inside the mission cargo, nothing identifies the vehicle as a Recce platform. The optronic sub system is remotely operated from the observer's position inside the protected cell of the vehicle.
9. Remote Controlled Handheld Thermal Imager (Sophie MF I Margot 3000) deployable up to 50 m from the vehicle.
10. Interchangeable Mission Cargo with fast fitting and removal to adapt payload to different mission requirements.
