The vice president of the BWB, Reinhard Schütte, and KMW COO Jürgen Weber, signed a corresponding contract in Koblenz today. KMW will deliver the vehicles to the army by November 2011. Shortly after they will be at the disposal of the Bundeswehr in Afghanistan. “With a repeat order such as this one, the German Army emphasizes its trust in Krauss-Maffei Wegmann as a trustworthy partner which reacts quickly, flexibly and reliably to the demands of its customers,” said Jürgen Weber after the signing of the contract. DINGO 2 – the best protection for dangerous missions Meanwhile, almost 1000 DINGOs in different versions, from ambulances over NBC reconnaissance vehicles and mobile command posts to reconnaissance and patrol vehicles, are in service with six European nations. The high level of protection has proven its worth during numerous terrorist assaults and has steadily protected the lives of the crew. The vehicles ordered offer the soldiers of the German Army the best protection available as well as highest mobility and vehicle payload, even under extreme conditions.
