Rosenbauer makes some of the world’s most sophisticated Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting (ARFF) vehicles. These are special category vehicles that are used in case a plane crash lands at the airport and catches fire. The crew members of ARFF are also trained to help passengers disembark and evacuate as they are the first vehicles to reach the site of the accident.
The FLF Panther 6 x 6 has a Volvo D15 Euro 6 engine that gives a power output of 750 hp. Equipped with a 'snozzle' which consists of a type of high reach extendable turret, it comes with a piercing nozzle that can enter in to the aircract cabin to spray foam. This is a very vital piece of equipment as it helps to contain the fire at source.
With an operating weight of of over 40 tons (it carries upto 14,000 litres of fire extinguishing liquid) this vehicle can do speeds of 0-80 km/hr in just about 30 seconds, which is very fast. It can run to a top speed of 120 km/hr.
In the Hollywood film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the character Sentinel Prime is also a Rosenbauer FLF Panther 6 x 6.
