Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, Germany provides support for Ukraine by supplying equipment and weapons, these come from supplies of the Federal Arms Forces and from deliveries from industry financed by the Federal Government’s funds for security capacity building.

Recently, the German Government announced that it will continue to provide military support for Ukraine by supplying equipment and weapons.

Germany will supply more military equipment and weapons to Ukraine in close collaboration with its partners and allies. A list is published by the German Ministry of Defense with an overview of combat vehicles and weapons which are already or will be delivered to Ukraine under a framework of military aid in its fight against the Russian invasion.

The Dingo 2 is a 4x4 armored vehicle in the category of MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) designed and manufactured by the German company KMW (Krauss-Maffei Wegmann) that entered into service with the German army in 2004. The vehicle is in service with Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Iraq, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Pakistan, and Qatar.

The Dingo 2 is a light 4x4 armored vehicle that is based on the well-known commercial Unimog chassis by Daimler with all-wheel drive and differential lock. This concept ensures excellent mobility in any type of terrain with low-cost procurement as well as low lifecycle costs.

The hull of the Dingo is specially designed and proven to withstand the detonation of anti-tank mines. Fragment protection is ensured through the double hull, and a belly pan inside the vehicle reduces pressure waves as well as deformations in the event of Anti-Personnel or Anti-tank mine explosions.

The Dingo 2 is available in different configurations, for the APC (Armored Personnel Carrier) variant, the vehicle can accommodate up to 7 soldiers including a driver and commander. The roof of the vehicle can be fitted with a weapon station armed with a 7.62 mm or 12.7mm machine gun. It can run at a maximum road speed of 90 km/g with a maximum cruising range of 1,000 km.
