The Rosenbauer Panther can discharge 14,000 litres of extinguishing fluid in just 90 seconds, making it the ultimate weapon against fires. See it in action, and learn more about how it works, including its Volvo Penta D16 700 hp engine,9,000 l/min pump output, and acceleration from 0 to 80 km/h in less than 28 seconds.

The Volvo Penta TAD1672VE engine is used for propulsion when the truck is moving and to power the fire pump when the truck is parked. It can also be used in a ‘pump-and-roll’ mode that drives and pumps at the same time.

A reliable high-performance engine is a critical requirement for ARFF vehicles, which have approximately three minutes to get to the scene of an emergency. These emergencies could include fire suppression, hazard mitigation, evacuation and possible rescue of aircraft passengers and crew.
