BW – ATF Dingo 2 C1 GSI
ATF Dingo 2 GE C1 GSI
In July 2008 KMW received an order from the Bundeswehr to produce and deliver four ATF Dingo 2 GE C1 Maintenance Vehicles with an option for an additional 44 vehicles, which were finally ordered in April 2010. The first two series vehicles were delivered for technical evaluations and tactical and logistical operational trials in late 2009.
The concept for technical maintenance sections and teams directs maintenance troops to conduct makeshift repairs on damaged vehicles and systems, if possible at the location where the incident happened. The required spare parts, which are usually not immediately available in an operational theatre, are replaced by functional parts as an improvised solution. The ATF Dingo 2 GE C1 features the same engine as the ATF Dingo 2 GE A2.3, but the fuel tank only holds 200 litres. The armoured cell offers sufficient space for the three-man crew consisting of the driver, gunner and commander. The vehicle is armed with an FLW 100 RCWS. It has a shelter in the rear with an electrically extendable roof primarily because of the payload, load volume, provision for a workstation protected against the effects of weather and unrestricted use of the roof-mounted weapon station. The canvas cover stored in the extendable roof is used to protect the workshop area from the weather. Access to the workshop area is provided by a folding ladder with a handrail and lockable door. Workshop equipment in the shelter features an integrated storage system to store tools, machines and spare parts. At the front right of the workshop shelter there is a 6.6kW power generator hydraulically driven by the vehicle’s engine.
