Titan Truck

The Titan Truck Fire General Purpose is a 4WD used for aircraft rescue firefighting and structural rescue firefighting in a deployed environment.

Each vehicle carries 2800 litres of water and 400 litres of fire retardant foam, and can operate continuously if given sufficient supplies and personnel. They are capable of stationary fire fighting or “pump and roll” operation using a roof-mounted turret.

Manufactured by US firm E-One, the Titan carries a crew of four in an air-conditioned cab, with breathing apparatus built into the seating. UHF and VHF radio are fitted, as are visual and audio warning systems.

Defence intends to replace the Titan under project Land 998 (Aviation Fire Trucks Replacement). The new vehicle is expected to enter service between 2016-2018.
