font size    

The German Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that it will send 100 more Dingo armored vehicles to its troops serving with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan.

Defense Minister Franz Josef Jung said the delivery of new military equipment was aimed at dealing with the deteriorating security situation in Afghanistan.

The 4.4-ton Dingo with space for seven people was similar to the U.S.-made Humvee. Previously, Berlin had planned to send 33 Dingo vehicles to German troops.

Germany had about 2,800 solders serving among the 32,000-strong ISAF troops in Afghanistan.
