The Israeli answer to armored hummers is the German Dingo. This vehicle is actually a commercial Mercedes-Benz UNIMOG 4 x 4 truck with an armored body. The vehicle, with armor, weighs 4.4 tons and normally carries a driver and four passengers (although as many as seven people can squeeze in). It's roughly similar in size and capability to an armored hummer. Israel is buying a hundred of the Dingos. The vehicles will be used for patrolling hostile areas, where small arms fire and roadside bombs may be encountered. The German army has also bought 56 Dingos.
