 Product Description

The P-2 replaced the O-11 in the Air Force inventory as the service's front-line combat aircraft crash vehicle. Known in the Air Force as the P-2 or 'Rolling Tetnus Shot' due to the large amount of rust they accumulated. Those who drove or rode in her loved what this slow but powerful beast could do. Have your choice of Air Force Badges on the front.

The P-2 FWD 8x8 Crash truck was part of the third-generation of crash trucks along with the P-4 Oshkosh crash trucks. The P-2's were built by FWD beginning in 1962, and delivered by the end of 1962, each P-2  had two turrets, two six-cylinder gasoline Continental Engines, a 1,400-gpm pump, a 2,300-gallon water tank, and a 200-gallon foam tank. In 1981, Quality was awarded a contract to rebuild and repower (Diesel) the fleet of P-2's.  The remanufactured P-2s had two V-8 Detroit diesel engines and produced an enormous amount of torque and acceleration. On a few occasions, the power was able to twist the drive shaft. This was the introduction of diesel engines for crash trucks, one improvement long overdue. In fact it was stated that the truck had too much speed to stop with the original brakes.

 

When Quality rebuilt the P-2's with diesel engines, they were renumbered as P-2As. The engines were not the only changes made to the P-2’s. The original FWD P-2 had roof turrets that could put out 1,000gpm, and a hand-operated bumper turret that put out 300gpm. The P-2As had turrets that were basically cut in half. The original turrets had two foam, and two water barrels, Compared to the original, the roof turret had only one foam barrel. The bumper turret was replaced with one that was electronically-operated. The trucks were also changed from painted red to yellow.

 

The P-2s had seating for four firefighters, including the driver-operator, who often was the only crewmember aboard during emergencies. The Driver also had to operate the turrets. The right seat was said to be for either a turret operator or a crew chief. There was a seat on either side of each of the trucks, just inside the folding doors, and up the steps on the deck, and facing forward, not facing the doors. The P-2 was considered to be a great crash truck

  1. Good sizing

    Posted by Unknown on 19th Feb 2016

    I have always had issues with t-shirts ordered online. I am a solid 3x but a lot of companies use shirts that are way too small according to their size chart. This one finally fits.
