Is it the same kind than this vehicle?

Maybe it would be better to use the same kind of labelling then (e.g. quotes around the nickname, "Mk." at the same position, etc.); I do not know which one is the correct labelling style.

No, it is a different vehicle.

The Dingo came into service with the British Army before the war (~1939), while the Ferret is about 15 years younger.

How to write a name for a military vehicle correctly is always a problem. Officially this vehicle was called 'Armoured Car, Daimler Mk.II'. Many armies don't use the maker's name at all: for example the 'Willys MB' is simply a '¼ ton truck, 4x4'. Army classification is a bit different to the civil (and our) system.

To keep it in the same shape I will use the 'naming convention' I used for the Ferret. I will use inverted kommas for nicknames only. After the war the British Army used -- as far as I know -- official names at least on some models (like Ferret, Chieftain, Centurion, etc.). If someone knows better, please let me know.

In my opinion, the year "1939" should be removed from the ID for this vehicle. The first Ferret wasn't made until post-WW2.
