Oshkosh Striker’s Deployed To Japan
Oshkosh Airport Products Group, a division of Oshkosh Corp. has placed 24 new generation Oshkosh Striker aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) vehicles on duty at airports in Japan. The apparatus are serving at Japan Air Self-Defense Force bases, Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force bases, Japan Ground Self-Defense Force bases, as well as at Tottori and Yamagata civilian airports.
All of the vehicles passed the Japan Fire Equipment Inspection Institute testing protocols supervised by Oshkosh distributor Daiichi Jitsugyo Co., Ltd. (DJK). The new generation Striker ARFF vehicles each feature a 6 x 6 axle configuration with Oshkosh TAK-4 all wheel independent suspension. The Deutz TCD 16L V8 Tier 3 and Tier4i/Euro5 emissions-compliant diesel engines (used to power the military and civilian trucks respectively) achieve a top speed greater than 113 km/h (70 mph). The engine power pack components are accessed through walk-in doors on either side of the engine compartment for easier servicing.Edit Module
