The Striker ARFF is available in three axle configurations (4×4, 6×6 and 8×8 models). The Striker 6×6, for example, features TAK-4 all wheel and fully independent suspension and the 697 hp, Tier 3 Deutz engine is mated to a seven-speed electronic automatic transmission for smooth power delivery enabling acceleration from 0 to 80 kph in less than 32 seconds.
The 6×6 ARFF vehicle’s firefighting system includes a 11,356-litre water tank, a 1,590-litre foam cell, and a 249 kg dry chemical system for dual agent fire suppression capabilities. The apparatus is available with a roof turret, bumper turret, and a Snozzle high reach extendable turret (HRET). A structural firefighting package is available with water intakes, discharges, and pre-connected hoses on both sides of the vehicle. The engine power pack components are readily accessed through walk-in doors on either side of the engine compartment.
