What airplanes used these Rolls Royce jet engines?

Their current duty is on this Hawaiian Fire Dept Jet-powered Fire Truck...

The Viper is used in the Jet Provost and the various Aermacchi trainers. Not sure what else.

it's getting harder not to tell people they are really odd if they think an airplan can be sexy.

Seems to me the engines are equipped with afterburners.In that case they would be R/R Speys previously used in the British versions of the F-4 Phantom.

Looks like this truck would be perfect set a fire rather than extinguish one!

The Viper was originally a Bristol Siddeley design. It was acquired by Rolls Royce when they took over the Bristol Aero Engine division in the early 60's (as also happened with the Pegasus (Harrier) and Olympus (Concorde and Vulcan). The Viper had been designed for use in unmanned drone/target aircraft such as the Jindivik. It was also used in the early versions of the De Havilland (later Hawker Siddeley) HS125 executive jet.
