The Range Rover 6 x 4 TACR2 (Range Rover Tactical Airfield Crash Rescue Mark 2) was introduced in 1977 as a successor to the earlier TACR1 based on a Land Rover chassis. The vehicles were designed in conjunction with the Ministry of Defence as first response crash rescue and first attack fire appliance for use at Royal Air Force and Royal Navy aerodromes in both the United Kingdom and overseas to get to the scene of an aircraft incident ahead of the major fire engines. With a capacity of 200 gallons of foam and water and an assortment of rescue gear, their four man crew was well prepared for emergencies.
At any one time, two TACR2s, characterised by their unique dark blue liveries were attached to the Queens Flight unit based at RAF Benson in Oxfordshire. From here the vehicles would travel throughout the United Kingdom for the purpose of providing fire cover and marshalling duties for the unit’s helicopters. This Oxford Diecast 1:76 scale model, registered 31 AG 22, represents one of the first Royal Air Force Gloster-Saro bodied appliances that served with the Queens Flight in 1977.
