Light Protected Vehicle for Specialised Forces
The air-portable Einsatzfahrzeug für spezialisierte Kräfte (ESK, or Light Protected Vehicle for Specialised Forces) Mungo is used to transport personnel and equipment in airborne units of the Bundeswehr, in medical and support units. The Mungo entered service in 2005 and, since then, it has seen active service in Afghanistan and in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In addition to the ESK Mungo, the Bundeswehr also procured the Mungo 2 Mehrzweck Multipurpose Vehicle based on the same chassis but fitted with a deposit tipper system. In the near future, the Mungo 3 A/C-Spür Nuclear/Chemical (N/C) Reconnaissance Vehicle will also enter service with the Bundeswehr. This publication describes all Mungo variants for the very first time and in great detail.
