Dingo 2: Not realistic all-round .50cal protected hull and indestructable engine
Open, LowPublic

Description

CUP's Dingo 2 has overwhelming armor package!

  • Full protection from small firearms
  • Full protection from .50cal HMGs
  • Massive protection from direct 105mm HE rounds

But grenades from AGS-17/MK-19 cause some damage.
Engine/Fuel systems are sort of invincible, as can survive 5 30mm AP rounds without any damage to Engine

While you are correct in that the engine and fuel don't appear to take damage, it definitely doesn't have full protection against .50 cal. Just tested it with both vehicle and static 50s with AI crew inside, they died after only a couple shots. Windows and windshield also broke pretty quickly, turret was destroyed pretty much instantly, and the wheels came off like normal.
