The German Ministry of Defence (MoD) plans to procure nine air-transportable Mungo Armoured Nuclear, Biological, Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle (NBCRV) from Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) for EUR51 million (USD57 million), including training and maintenance. In the versions of the MUNGO Large Capacity, the vehicle is equipped with a continuous and armored large-capacity cabin. The useable volume can be as large as 8 cubic meters. The MUNGO Large Capacity Vehicle is air-transportable in a CH53 transport helicopter, despite its larger exterior dimensions and higher weight. In the transport airplanes of the type C130 and A400M two or even three MUNGO vehicles can be transported together with their crew. In addition, the Bundeswehr intends for the single prototype vehicle to be brought up to the standard of the serial production variant, bringing the total to 10.
