Description: The Krauss-Maffei Wegmann Dingo is a family of 4x4 (and 6x6) all-protected, high mobility, armored vehicles suitable for peacekeeping operations. The basic model features a seating capacity for an eight-man crew. Its armored hull can withstand small arms fire, anti-tank and anti-personnel mine detonations, artillery fragments and NBC agents threats. It is based on a high cross-country mobility DaimlerChrysler UNIMOG U 5000 chassis and is powered by a 237-hp diesel engine allowing for a top speed of 120 kph. The Dingo tactical vehicles can be deployed by C-130, C-160 and A400M tactical transport aircraft. More than 15 variants have been developed so far including patrol and reconnaissance versions, mobile command posts, ambulance and NBC-reconnaissance versions. The Dingo tactical vehicle family has been successfully fielded in peacekeeping missions in Afghanistan providing a high level of protection always saving the lives of the crew members.

The Dingo 1 was first fielded in 2000 and subsequently deployed in peacekeeping missions by the German Army. Dingo 2 is an improved variant of Dingo 1 featuring many upgrades compared with its predecessor and essentially increased crew protection. The first Dingo 2 vehicle was handed over to the Austrian Army on 9 May 2005. The German Army took delivery of its first Dingo 2 on 17 November 2005.

In addition to Dingo 1 and Dingo 2, the German Defense Procurement Agency (BWB) signed a contract with Krauss-Maffei Wegmann for a new Dingo variant demonstrator to serve as protected command and mission carrier vehicle in late 2005. The new Dingo would provide seating capacity for a crew of nine-man utilizing an extended group compartment to be tested with mission-specific equipment beginning in early 2006. Focusing on modularity and maximum protection the new vehicle, called Dingo 2 GFF, eventually would convert into the replacement for German Army's M113 armored personnel carriers with a potential requirement for 1,000 to 1,500 vehicles.

So far, Germany has ordered 155 Dingo 1 vehicles with deliveries started in 2000 plus an order covering 55 Dingo 2 all-protected vehicles. Austria ordered 20 Dingo 2 vehicles intended for ambulance and NBC reconnaissance missions. Belgium is the largest Dingo 2 operator so far with 220 Dingo 2 plus 132 additional vehicles on order. Belgium Dingo 2 were expected to serve as a mobile command post, ambulance and radar command and control vehicle. On 28 June 2006, the German Parliament gave the Bundeswehr the go ahead for a further procurement of 149 Dingo 2 all-protected vehicles under a 109 million Euro contract.
