General

Developed as a private venture by Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) in the early 1990s, the Dingo is a 4x4 Infantry Mobility Vehicle (IMV) based off of the Unimog U-1550L chassis. Like its Bushmaster, LMV, and Eagle IV cousins, the Dingo is survivable against IEDs and other mines, using hull shaping and isolation of the crew from the hull to provide much higher crew survivability than conventional light vehicles. Intended for use in urban, counter-insurgency operations, and low intensity conflicts the Dingo's armor is thin, but is equipped with MEXAS composite armor and is somewhat better protected compared to other vehicles in its class.

The modeled version is the Allschutz-Transport-Fahrzeug (Ger: all-protected transport vehicle) Dingo 2A2 fitted with a 7.62 mm machine gun armed KMW Type 1530 one-man weapon station operated from under-armor. Unlike the Dingo 1, the Dingo 2 series is based off of the Unimog U-5000 series chassis offering improved protection, greater payload, and increased internal volume. As with other light trucks in Steel Beasts Professional the Dingo is crew-able at the Gunner's (F6), Commander's (F7), Driver's (F9), and Squad Leader's (F11) positions.

The dismount section for the Dingo is 3 men, equipped with 2 M136 (AT-4) light anti-armor weapons and 5.56mm rifles.

An increasingly popular design, the Dingo family is in current service with Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, and Iraq.

Beginning with revision 4.156 the Dingo 2A2 may be equipped with the Diehl Active Vehicle Protection System (AVePS) to enhance protection against RPG and ATGM threats.
