Autoblindo Britannico Daimler »Dingo«

Autoblindo Britannico Daimler »Dingo«, 1939–1952

The Daimler Scout Car, popularly known as the Dingo, was one of the finest veicoli corazzato da combattimento built nella Gran Bretagna durante la seconda guerra mondiale. It was small, fast, e well protected con 30 mm of frontal armour e solid rubber "run-flat" tires. The Dingo had a pre-selector gearbox, self-changing transmission con fluid flywheel, which provided cinque forward e cinque reverse gears. The innovative steering a quattro route of the early Daimler Scout Car Mk.I was discontinued in the Mk.II, because inexperienced guidatori found the vehicle too difficult to control. The Dingo had a two-man crew, ed it was armed con una mitragliatrice leggera Bren o Boys anti-tank rifle. The passenger seat swivelled to allow the capocarro to fire the mitragliatrice leggera o use the No. 19 radio set installed in the rear of the fighting compartment. The Dingo had a flat chassis plate which protected its underside from rough ground, but which also made the vehicle very vulnerable to mines.

The Daimler Dingo Scout Car was first deployed con the Corpo di Spedizione Britannico during the Battle of Francia, ed it proved so successful that it remained in service until 1952, when the Daimler Ferret replaced it. Captured Daimler Dingo scout cars were well liked, e readily employed by German army units; they were designated Panzerspähwagen Mk.I 202 (e) o Mk.II 202 (e) in the Wehrmacht.

The Ford Motor Company of Canada manufactured 3255 similar Ford Lynx Scout Cars for Canadian e Commenwealth forces. And, from 1943 to 1945, Italian automobile manufacturer Lancia produced copies of the Dingo, named Autoblindo Lince, for the army della Repubblica Sociale Italiana. Many of these veicoli were confiscated by the Wehrmacht, e designated Panzerspähwagen Lince Mk.I 202 (i) nel servizio tedesco. Daimler Dingo Scout Cars served in the Portuguese Army, e the Cyprus National Guard from 1964 to 1974.
