ACTRFS Takes Delivery Of New Medium Tankers

The ACTRFS has taken delivery of three of the five new style medium tankers that have recently been built by Moore Engineering in South Australia, with the two remaining vehicles due in mid to late September.

The new tankers have several new design futures to enhance crew safety and the operational capability of the ACTRFS, these include;
·         Crew safety features - including cabin and wheel sprays and In-cab pull down heat shields,
·         A shortened wheel base for greater off road capability,
·         A mobile data terminal;
·         A dedicated 20L foam tank (removing the need to carry 20L foam drums); and
·         An in-cab pump start control.

The vehicles have a water carrying capacity of 1400L, seat a crew of three and will be going to Jerrabomberra, Molonglo, Southern Districts, Hall and Gungahlin Brigades.
