Saudi Arabia wants to buy 30 Dingo 2 nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) reconnaissance vehicles to help defend itself against a possible attack by Iran, the Bild am Sonntag (BamS) newspaper reported over the weekend.

The deal would be worth around €100 million ($130 million) for Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and Bruker Daltonik, which would provide training in a simulation vehicle in Leipzig, where the company is based. In the long term, the Saudis want as many as 100 Dingo 2 NBC reconnaissance vehicles, according to BamS.

The Dingo 2 NBC reconnaissance vehicles would replace 36 Fuchs NBC reconnaissance vehicles Saudi Arabia bought from Thyssen in 1991.
