E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group, has begun delivery of the first unit in an order for 49 TITAN 4x4 Air Transportable (AT) ARFF P-19C vehicles to the USAF.
These vehicles are specifically designed to fit into the C-130J SUPER HERCULES aircraft, allowing the vehicles to be deployed to USAF bases around the world. In its latest configuration, the TITAN AT P-19C is about two-thirds the size, with a transport weight of less than 26,000lbs and GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of approximately 42,000, compared to the 62,000 of the full-size TITAN.
The TITAN AT P-19C meets all the performance requirements of NFPA 414, with acceleration from 0-50mph in less than 25 seconds. The extruded aluminium cab, with 56.4 sq ft of glass area and cockpit style seating, provides outstanding visibility for the driver, officer and crew.
The vehicles feature the E-ONE ECOLOGIC foam test system, which allows the vehicles to be tested without the environmental impact of dispersing foam.
“E-ONE has built the Air Force Fire & Emergency Services the next generation air-transportable ARFF truck by taking us from an early 1980s model to today’s environment for our warfighters, while still remaining consistent with the airframe utilized for transportability around the world,” commented Fred Terryn, USAF Fire Vehicle Program Manager. “The new TITAN AT will be the workhorse for our deployed firefighters and E-ONE has ensured it meets our requirements wherever the mission is requested.”
“To meet the strict dimension and weight requirements for loading onto a C-130 aircraft, E-ONE engineers worked closely with the US Air Force in designing this new product. It was truly a team effort to execute this program," added Matt Reda, International ARFF Product Manager for E-ONE.
