After the start of the special operation of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine, the Kyiv regime sought from its Western "partners" to transfer the maximum possible amount of equipment. From Germany, the independent authorities, faced with heavy losses in armored vehicles, were expected first of all to transfer tanks Leopard 2 and BMP Marder.

Berlin made the decision to supply armored vehicles for the infantry only in September, promising to arm the Armed Forces of Ukraine with 50 Dingo 2 armored personnel carriers.

DINGO has proven itself well and will make a significant contribution to the protection of Ukrainian soldiers

- said in the Bundestag.

At the same time, as emphasized in the German parliament, the transfer of the Marder BMP to Ukraine is impossible, since combat vehicles of this type are intended for Greece to replace the BMP-1 delivered by Athens to Kyiv. Judging by recent publications on the Web, Dingo is already being operated in the airborne divisions of the square.

Positioned as an armored personnel carrier, the Dingo ATF was adopted by the Bundeswehr in 2003. Since then, the German army has received over 500 pieces of equipment, actively using it in Afghanistan.

No other Bundeswehr vehicle like the Dingo has saved so many lives. It is especially in demand as an increased protection armored personnel carrier (ATF) during transport or patrol. Its relatively small dimensions make it easy to navigate narrow and winding roads, even in built-up areas. Unimog chassis makes it maneuverable and off-road passable

- stated on the website of the Ministry of Defense of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Dingo ATF, having a mass of 12,6 to 13,1 tons, has a speed of up to 89 km / h. The armored car can accommodate up to 8 people and is equipped with machine guns or grenade launchers. It is possible to install a remote-controlled turret, however, judging by the photographs of the Independent Ministry of Defense, the Germans decided not to transfer vehicles in such a luxurious configuration to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

        With such "friends" in the CSTO, there is no need for enemies. Especially the newly elected Kazakh, as well as Uzbeks, Kyrgyz, Turkmen and Tajiks. Who sends fuel and ammunition to saloreich ??? And we shyly lower our eyes to the bottom and are silent for the umpteenth time am

      Ukronauts love German weapons .. Runes / crosses are painted on it. Feel themselves, in sight, on special with impunity. For the third time, German technology tramples the fields of Ukraine. hi Again, the misfortune of the Russians is in their kindness and decency .. The Germans supply weapons to the cunning, and we oil, coal, gas to the Germans ..

      What other "partners"? We thought, listening to the Ministry of Defense, that at least Russia's allies, the Army and Navy, were really rearmed, everything was in abundance and available ... And now the whole world is collecting money and uniforms, already mobilized and other contract soldiers. I don't mind fees, I’m in favor of calling to account officials who admitted the absence of elementary things in the army. But I think these are fantasies. My fantasies. And the guys who need to be supported there, whoever can. and not like in the well-known video with the execution.

          Not me, not you, you don’t know what exactly happened there. The fact that the Charter was written in blood, that’s true. Everyone wants to survive, a normal human desire. its geolocation and much more ... The army, like society, requires reform, and it will happen, regardless of the leaders of all ranks and ranks.

      What partners, what are you talking about? Now only on Vesti FM the transfer has ended, it clearly says that Kazakhstan supplies oil products to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
      What other partners do we need?

      Russian oligarchs with Western "partners" are stealing the natural wealth of Russia! And who is "covering" all this? Guess yourself! It is incomprehensible to the mind - Russia is fighting against the ukroreich and pays this heir to Nazi Germany money for the transit of oil and gas to the European enemies of Russia, arming the ukroreich and preparing to fight openly against Russia! Not only that - the supply of strategic raw materials to enemies during the war!

    This technique protects against explosions, does its job quite well, still better than a civilian car painted in khaki colors that has no protection. We should also have a lot of such equipment.

    What they will use, don’t go to the grandmother, it will break / get stuck - they will leave it, it’s not their own, it’s not their own, the West will still throw it up. And the fact that it shoots and the infantry behind the armor is yes, that is still a present.

    a good armored car, a high silhouette - it’s more convenient to aim at it ...
