I know about the better protection of the Dingo. Still, I disagree with the whole concept of Dingo/Eagle. The Duro, I agree, might be a different matter and is quite a usefull vehicle.
First of, the RCWS on all vehicles decreases situational awareness a whole lot. Nothing beats manned machine guns when it comes to sit.awareness and the possibility to quickly engage on the move!
Secondly, Dingo doesn't even offer more than one hatchet in the roof. Emergency exits, shooting out of hatchets and communication with the outside is barely possibly.
Thirdly, and most importantly is patrol setup.
one force protection platoon, a Cimic team, a BAT, a bunch of WBV 'soldiers' for shopping
Now, cram all those people into 'their' vehicles..
FP Platoon: 3squads, 2 Dingos each, 1 c2 dingo for the platoon commander
Cimic team: 1 eagle/wolf
WBV: another Dingo
That's a total of 8 Dingos and 2 other vehicles, column length of well above 300meters. It's just hard to control, ineffective to lead and has a much higher chance of one vehicle breaking down and halting the column.
I always preferred small setups:
f.e. my FP platoon in 3 Füchsen, the Wbv/comic guys and my platoon leading section in another Fuchs(no need to use a c2 version..) and the BAT in their own vehicle. It's tight, easy to control and I just have one combat ineffective vehicle in my column, the column has half the size and twice the speed.
A Fuchs offers significantly better mobility over a Dingo and it practically has the same size.
Dont get me wrong, I'm all in love with Dingos good level of protection - but not at that price.
I rather have 10 soldiers in one less protected vehicle with way better situational awareness than 5 perfectly sheltered soldiers in 2 vehicles, slow to move and respond and totally isolated from the world outside.
Scrap the GFF, concentrate on:
Wolf MSA, Mungos and Wiesel for airborne
Wolf SSA, Fuchs and Fuchs with a 20-30mm BMK
Wolf SSA, Boxer and Boxer with 30mm BMK
Edit: Oh, and I'm totally aware that this is never going to happen with the Bundeswehr. Props to the French with their VABs, armed VAPs and VBLs.
