The multitudinous and extremely variable DINGO 2 family from Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) has welcomed a new arrival. The company presented the armoured DINGO 2 recovery vehicle at the EUROSATORY trade fair in Paris.


This vehicle combines high performance capability with speed. With a hydraulic 10-ton recovery winch – the DINGO 2 is suitable for any incapacitated vehicle up to the weight class of the DINGO 2 during towing operation.

“Time is of the essence when recovering vehicles that have been involved in accidents, and particularly when rescuing the crew in time of crisis and conflict”, says Frank Haun, chairman of the KMW board of directors in Paris. “This is why the DINGO 2 recovery vehicle is designed to be able to respond immediately”.

Unlike conventional recovery vehicles, the new development can follow patrol and convoy vehicles in deployment areas because of its size and its outstanding mobility.
For the first time, this extremely mobile recovery version of the DINGO 2 has three axles (6×6) but is still based on a UNIMOG chassis, like the entire DINGO 2 family, making operation, maintenance and training easier.
