Scammell Mk 10 E
The Mk 10 airfield crash tender Came into service in 1981 and was built by Carmichael using a Scammell Nubian chassis and powered by a Cummins V903 diesel engine housed in the rear. This was a Primary 2 Foam Truck for use on smaller airfields, or to augment major foams.
Several variants came into being, namely MK 10A, MK10B, MK10C, & 10D. Most of the MK 10 & 10A variants were converted to a MK 10E with the fitting of a new cab and new monitor pipe work. The first Mark 10’s originally had one tank containing a premix foam solution but because of domestic fire fighting requirements the MK10A’s were fitted with separate water and foam tanks.
The vehicle can be used on the road or under cross cuntry conditions.
