Published:  20 May, 2014

Oshkosh Airport Products Group has announced that the Administracion Nacional de Aviacion Civil of Argentina (ANAC) purchased 25 newest generation Oshkosh Striker 6 x 6 Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicles. Seven Striker ARFF vehicles are on duty at airports in Buenos Aires and across the country, and 18 more are on order for delivery in Summer 2014.

'The Oshkosh Striker 6 x 6 delivers innovative fire suppression technology, unmatched chassis performance, and unsurpassed reliability,' said Jeff Resch, Oshkosh Airport Products Group vice president and general manager. 'We are thrilled to have the newest generation Striker selected by ANAC to provide state-of-the-art emergency response at airports across Argentina.'

The Oshkosh Striker 6 x 6 axle configuration, with Oshkosh TAK-4 all wheel and fully independent suspension, offers a smooth ride and exceptional off-road capabilities, claims the company. The 697 hp, Tier 3 Deutz engine is matched with a seven-speed electronic automatic transmission for smooth power delivery enabling acceleration from 0-80 kph (50 mph) in less than 32 seconds.

The firefighting system includes a 3,000-gallon water tank, a 420-gallon foam cell, and a 550-pound dry chemical system for dual agent fire suppression capabilities. The apparatus feature a roof turret, bumper turret, and a structural firefighting package with water intakes, discharges, and 200-feet of pre-connected hose available on both sides of the vehicle. The engine power pack components are accessed through walk-in doors on either side of the engine compartment for easier servicing.

ANAC was created in 2007 and is the civil aviation authority of Argentina. It oversees all aspects of civil aviation within the Argentine territory. Its goal is to ensure the highest level of safety in air operations performed in Argentina.
