Oshkosh Storm meets International Civil Aviation Organization and aircraft rescue and fire fighting requirements

Oshkosh Airport Products Group, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, introduced the all-new Oshkosh® Storm aircraft rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) vehicle. The Oshkosh Storm is engineered to provide a powerful, yet cost- effective, ARFF response for International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) airports. Oshkosh is embarking upon a road show tour to demonstrate the vehicle’s capabilities to airports located in the Monterrey, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Merida, and Cancun regions of Mexico.

“The new Oshkosh Storm ARFF vehicle is designed with valuable input and assistance from ICAO airport fire departments and authorities looking for a powerful and economical emergency response vehicle,” said Jeff Resch, Oshkosh Airport Products Group vice president and general manager. “With its state-of-the-art firefighting systems, exceptional maneuverability, and rugged on-road and off-road capabilities, the Oshkosh Storm establishes a new level of performance in its category.”

The Oshkosh Storm ARFF vehicle features a 6 x 6 all-wheel-drive axle configuration with the legendary Oshkosh 3300 transfer case. The Cummins ISM 500 hp turbo diesel engine is Euro 5 emissions compliant, and is mated to an Allison 6-speed electronic automatic transmission for smooth power delivery. The vehicle accelerates from 0-80 KPH in less than 40 seconds, and the angle of approach and departure are 30-degrees for excellent off-road capabilities. The four-door cab offers seating for up to eight firefighters and is available in either left or right hand drive.

The firefighting system meets ICAO ARFF requirements and features a 6,000 liter (1,585 gallon) water tank and two 6.35 cm (2.5-in.) direct tank fills. The PTO driven pump delivers 4,731 lpm (1,250 gpm) output and delivers pump-in-motion capabilities. An in-cab controlled roof turret delivers 3785 lpm (1,000 gpm), while a pair of 38 mm (1.5-in.) attack lines are available in compartments located on each side of the vehicle. A 226.8 kg (500 lb.) dry chemical system is standard, as is a foam tank capacity of 750 liters (198 gallons). The Oshkosh Storm ARFF vehicle also features three under truck protection nozzles.

“As part of our launch, we are taking the Oshkosh Storm ARFF to airports across Mexico, to allow customers to ride and inspect the vehicle first hand,” added Resch. “Oshkosh is a world leader in ARFF, municipal, and wildland firefighting, and the new Oshkosh Storm ARFF vehicle is a welcome addition to our growing apparatus lineup.”
