E-ONE, a subsidiary of REV Group and a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus, has begun delivery of the first unit in an order for 49 TITAN® 4x4 Air Transportable (AT) ARFF P-19C vehicles to the United States Air Force (USAF).
These vehicles are specifically designed to fit on Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules aircraft, allowing the vehicles to be deployed to USAF bases around the world. As the latest configuration of the E-ONE TITAN 4X4 ARFF, the TITAN AT P-19C is about two-thirds the size with a transport weight of less than 26,000 pounds and GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) of approximately 42,000 pounds, compared to 62,000 pounds of the full size TITAN.
The TITAN AT P-19C meets all the performance requirements of NFPA 414 with acceleration from 0-50 mph in less than 25 seconds. The extruded aluminum cab with 56.4 square feet of glass area and cockpit style seating provides outstanding visibility for the driver, officer and crew. Each of these vehicles will be painted in a matte finish desert sand color.
The vehicles feature the E-ONE ECOLOGIC™ foam test system which allows the vehicles to be tested without the environmental impact of dispersing foam.
These ARFF vehicles also include the following features:
“E-ONE has built the next generation in air transportable ARFF trucks for the Air Force Fire & Emergency Services, 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,” said Fred Terryn, Fire Vehicle Program Manager for the U.S. Air Force. “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.”
