DINGO 2 Psychological Operations

Target-group-oriented dissemination of information

The PSYOPS version of the DINGO 2 was specifically designed as a loudspeaker carrying vehicle for PSYOPS units. The assignment of these units is, among other things, to influence the conflict parties and inform the population in the operational area through communicative means, for example, about events, thereby breaking down prejudices and correcting misinformation.

For these tasks the DINGO 2 PSYOPS is equipped with a raisable loudspeaker that can convey information for a distance of up to one kilometer. In addition, a speaker system is integrated on the roof, via which the three-man crew can communicate with the immediate environment from within the vehicle whilst driving.

The DINGO 2 – Best of its kind
The DINGO 2 is considered the safest and best protected wheeled vehicle in its class. Its innovative safety concept offers its passengers the highest possible protection against anti-tank and anti-personnel mines, IEDs, small arms and fragments from artillery and mortar ammunition. In addition, the DINGO 2 comes equipped with a protection kit against NBC agents.

One platform – multitudinous capabilities
The secrets to the success of the DINGO 2 are its first-class protection and mobility characteristics and its variable equipment concept, which allows specific equipping for current as well as future mission profiles. Just like the broad range of equipment options, the protection cell can also be adapted to suit the needs of the customer. The patrol vehicle cell is offered in various designs for up to 8 occupants, while the large volume cell features doors to the sides and rear and can accommodate a variety of equipment such as a command post, NBC reconnaissance or ambulance.

High performance. Low lifecycle costs. Low maintenance
As an ultra-modern wheeled vehicle, the DINGO 2 is not only well prepared for a variety of mission profiles and extreme terrain, but also for a cost-effective long service life. Its basis is a militarized UNIMOG chassis. This results in low cost for training and instruction of drivers and mechanics. Another economic benefit is also the low-maintenance, durable diesel engine. In addition, the KMW service department offers worldwide vehicle maintenance - directly in the operational area - and also supports the supply of spare parts. Thus, each time the full performance of the vehicles is ensured.

Deployed all over the world
With the DINGO 2, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann have developed a convincing response to the numerous global threat scenarios. More than 800 units of this powerful general protection transport vehicle are under contract for 6 Nations.
