Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), Europe's market leader for highly protected wheeled and tracked vehicles presented a newly developed and increased power-rated version of the DINGO 2 wheeled vehicle at the opening of the security exhibition DSEi in London today. 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.
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.
