TACR 2 RAF Pink Panther

£10.00

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.

The ‘Pink Panther’ represents the prototype of the first batch of 43 Gloster-Saro built vehicles.  This example which is finished in a red Day-Glo livery with matt black bonnet, was the sole vehicle to feature this livery. Registered 31 AG 41, it was based at the RAF’s fire fighting training school at Catterick in North Yorkshire where it was used in conjunction with other types of military fire engines for training Air Force fire fighters.
