Rosenbauer, the world's leading fire industry supplier, is about to bring a new
generation of its PANTHER ARFF onto the market. The latest PANTHER 4x4 and 6x6
models will make their debut next year at the Interschutz Trade Fair in Hanover,
while the launch of the PANTHER 8x8 version is planned for 2017.     

Self-confident design
Design continues to play a decisive role with regard to the next PANTHER
generation. Indeed, the self-assured form language of the predecessor series
that received numerous awards (including the iF product design award 2006, the
red dot design award 2006, the International Design Excellence Award 2008) has
been retained and accentuated. Balanced, harmonious proportions, clear lines and
a freshly designed front section are all set to emphasize the PANTHER's dynamic

Increased performance
The front section of the truck lends the new PANTHER a striking appearance and
furnishes the crew with an improved panorama view from the cab. The lighting
system not only furnishes design accents, but also contributes to vehicle
safety. In addition, the newly developed, FEM-optimized cabin cell offers
greater crew protection and is being subjected to extensive crash testing in
order to document passenger safety. The instrumentation layout in the cockpit
has been rearranged and in general, functionality and user comfort levels have
been raised considerably.  

Apart from the superstructure and the cabin, the extinguishing technology
systems have also been upgraded for the new PANTHER. Innovative pumps,
proportioning systems and monitors will enhance still further the firefighting
performance of what is already the world's most powerful ARFF.  

The new PANTHER represents a combination of user-oriented functionality and an
emotional design language at the leading edge of technology. Moreover,
production in the world's most modern fire industry plant will ensure uniform,
certificated quality of the very highest technical standard.
