German vehicle maker Krauss-Maffei Wegmann has unveiled a newly developed and increased power-rated version of its Dingo 2 armored vehicle.
"KMW is known throughout the world for its powerful and highly protected military vehicles," said KMW President and Chief Executive Officer Frank Haun. "With the new Dingo HD we are consequently continuing our product strategy, offering a product line with a broad variety of vehicles, all at the highest level of protection, to our international clients."
The new heavy-duty version Dingo 2 offers a much higher payload of up to 3 tons, while the external dimensions remain the same as other Dingo 2 vehicles. The gross vehicle weight was increased to 14.5 tons.
The vehicle is based on a Unimog vehicle chassis with a 225kW, six-cylinder engine and a fully automatic transmission.
For self-defense, it's equipped with a remote-controlled light weapons station of the type FLW 100/FLW 200.
The HD Dingo 2 was introduced at the Defense and Security Equipment International Exhibition, which opened this week in London.
