Facts about the DINGO 3 6x6 troop carrier

Versatile system carrier platform, reliable and mission-proven, based on the DINGO 2

The new DINGO 3 6x6 offers a significantly increased payload of up to 5 t.
The new  drivetrain of the DINGO 3 6x6 with high-torque 6-cylinder turbo diesel engine, automatic transmission and automatic central tyre inflation system significantly simplifies operation so that the driver can fully concentrate on important aspects of the mission.
Cooling performance has been improved enormously and offers sufficient reserves for extreme mission conditions. The electrical power has also been significantly increased in order to ensure sufficient power supply for future installation sets and equipment kits.
The DINGO 3 6x6 troop carrier is equipped with an electrically operated rear ramp which enables quick and safe mounting and dismounting of the crew. 
Driving performance has been increased even further in comparison with the DINGO 2 HD, and the new instrument panel architecture has been adapted to the civilian Unimog.

The DINGO 3 6x6 variant shown here has a large-capacity safety cell with a continuous driver and crew compartment. Depending on the customer’s purpose of use, other safety cell variants comparable to the DINGO 2 can be created.

The vehicle’s maximum permissible weight is 20 t. Based on a new Unimog chassis with a 6-cylinder engine of up to 260 kW and a fully automatic transmission, a great number of new, mission-specific variants can be configured while maintaining the established, internationally leading protection concept. At the same time, the logistics concept of the DINGO 3 6x6 is seamlessly adapted to the DINGO versions which have already been introduced. This provides the user nations (Germany, Belgium, Czech Republic, Luxembourg, Norway, Austria and Qatar) with continuous and cost-effective supply for their family of DINGO vehicles in the future.

The DINGO is known as the safest and best-protected wheeled vehicle of its class. Its innovative safety concept provides its occupants with the greatest possible protection from anti-tank and anti-personnel mines, IEDs, small arms and shrapnel from artillery and mortar shells. The DINGO also offers protection from  NBC warfare agents as a standard feature.

In addition to its first-class protection and mobility features, the DINGO’s secret of success  is based on its variable armament concept. It enables specific equipping for current as well as future mission profiles. Alongside an extensive selection of equipment options, the safety cell can also be adapted to the customer’s requirements. For instance, the cell of the patrol vehicle is made in different variants for up to eight occupants. The large-capacity cell has doors at the side and rear and is configured for a wide variety of equipment kits, such as command post, NBC reconnaissance or ambulance.

As a highly modern wheeled vehicle, the DINGO  is not only ideally equipped for diverse mission profiles and extreme terrain conditions, but also for a long and cost-effective service life. It is based on a militarised Unimog chassis. This reduces training and instruction effort for drivers and mechanics. The low-maintenance, robust diesel engine is also an economic advantage. Furthermore, the KMW customer service offers worldwide vehicle service – even directly in the deployment zone – and assists in spare part supply. This ensures that vehicles will be at full performance capability at all times.

With the DINGO  , Krauss-Maffei Wegmann has developed an impressive response to the wide variety of threat scenarios worldwide. More than 1,000 high-performance all-protected carrier vehicles are already under contract for seven nations.
