The PROTECTOR P6/S8S/AP is a medium duty firefighting vehicle designed specifically for use against fires involving aircraft. It carries a crew of five (including the driver) and quick-action fire fighting and rescue equipment.
The truck is built on a Simon Gloster Saro 6 X 6 chassis with forward control, centre driving position and a rear mounted V8 diesel engine. The high engine power offers excellent acceleration, high speed, high standards of cross country performance, reliability and ease of operation. Towing eyes are fitted, two at the front and two at the rear of the chassis.
The engine is located at the rear of the chassis and provides tractive power, ancillary drives for hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical services and, via a power divider and a power take off (PTO),
drive for the fire pump. The torque converter and transmission gearbox are mounted centrally on the chassis, close coupled to a transfer gearbox.
The main transmission is fully automatic with five forward gears and one reverse. For maximum tractive effort off-road the differential gears of the transfer gearbox, individual axles and the rear inter-axle drive are locked.
