Five months ago, the fourth generation of the Rosenbauer PANTHER made its debut
at the leading Interschutz fire industry fair and since then there has been
lively demand for the new model. The fastest out of the blocks was the Changi
Airport Group of Singapore, which already captured the very first new PANTHER
6x6 in June. The Changi Airport Group operates the hub of the same name, which
has been voted the "World's Best Airport" three times in a row and also has two
Rosenbauer rescue staircases in its vehicle fleet.
The new PANTHER for Singapore Changi Airport is equipped with an integrated N80
pump complete with a FIXMIX 2.0 foam proportioning system, a powder unit, an
RM65 roof and an RM15 front monitor. The truck carries a payload 12,000 l of
water, 1,500 l of foam and 250 kg of powder and is fitted with a 16.5m STINGER
extinguishing arm.
Major order from India
The first large contract has come from the Airports Authority of India (AAI). It
has placed a fifty-vehicle order comprised entirely of the new PANTHER 6x6 with
10,000 l of water, 1,300 l of foam and 250 kg of powder on board. The
extinguishing technology consists of an N80, a FIXMIX 2.0, a powder unit and an
RM80 roof monitor. The pump and the monitor have been harmonized to perfection
and both offer maximum output of 9,000 l/min. The monitor has a throw range of
up to 100 m.
The Airports Authority of India operates 125 airports across the subcontinent
including eleven major and 81 regional hubs. The fifty PANTHERs will be
delivered by the end of 2016 and then distributed by the AII among 23 regional
airports that will include Bhopal, Udaipur, Varanasi, Raipur, Bhubaneswar or
Coimbatore. With the new vehicles, the Airports Authority has more than doubled
its PANTHER fleet to over one hundred. Most recently, the AAI put six PANTHER-
S trucks into operation and the first of the new PANTHERs was accepted at the
end of October.
Successful series
Apart from the new PANTHER, its predecessor model continues to be in great
demand. In 2016, trucks are to be supplied to the Lanzhou Zhongchuan and Chengdu
Shuangliu airports in China, as well as other airports in South Korea, Kuwait,
Mongolia and the Faroe Islands, to name but a few. Rosenbauer is also enjoying
great success with the PANTHER in the USA. For example, during this year
vehicles were supplied to airports that include the hubs in Houston, Miami,
Dallas/Fort Worth and Fort Lauderdale and next year Los Angeles Airport is to
receive its first PANTHER.

Since the launch of the first generation in 1991, over 1,400 PANTHERs have been
sold, which means that Rosenbauer's flagship ARFF is one of the most successful
vehicles of its type of all time. Production takes place at the group's Plant II
in Leonding, Austria and the location in Wyoming, Minnesota. Serial production
of the new PANTHER generation will commence at the beginning of the coming year.
