Our airport (GRR) just spent $255,000 on a new Oshkosh snow removal vehicle - based on that, the Oshkosh Striker must be some serious cabbage too.

Oshkosh trucks are pretty impresive. We have two of their P-series snowplows and an H-series snow broom at MKG, as well as an old (1993) T-series ARFF truck and a 1974 P4 ARFF unit as well.

While the broom was on the production line, my family and I got a tour of the plant at Oshkosh. It's a really cool facility.



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

Is it true that it can pierce the skin of the aircraft and inject fire retardant?

Yes, and an infrared thermal imaging display can indicate where hot spots may be inside the fuselage so they can determine the most effective places to pierce the fuselage.

Impressive stuff.

A new 1500 gallon ARFF truck is often over $500,000. Larger Trucks are even more.

That's called a "piercing nozzle" and it's an option to the Snozzle system, and as I understand it, it can be installed on many different makes of ARFF equipment.
