“Oshkosh is planning to showcase one of its most elaborate and
innovative trade show exhibits at Interschutz. It is both a thrill and
an honor for our team,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive
vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “In addition to
unveiling an all-new global municipal fire apparatus, we will be sharing
details on the new twin-engine Oshkosh Striker 8 X 8, demonstrating the
amazing Striker Simulator virtual reality training system, and
showcasing an Oshkosh Striker 6 X 6 with the Snozzle HRET from
Manchester International Airport. It’s going to be special.”
The new Oshkosh fire apparatus aimed at international markets is
engineered and constructed to exacting standards by Oshkosh subsidiary,
Pierce Manufacturing (North America’s leading designer of custom fire
and emergency vehicles). More details will follow at the show with an
Oshkosh fire apparatus on display at the Oshkosh Corporation booth.
Detailed drawings, design engineering and ARFF experts will be on hand
to introduce the much-anticipated new Oshkosh Striker 8 X 8
configuration. Among the most powerful firefighting trucks on the
planet, the Striker 8 X 8 will offer a range of twin-engine power plant
options for unmatched vehicle performance and firefighting capabilities.
The cab will set the new industry standard for ergonomics, visibility,
comfort and safety features on an 8 X 8 ARFF vehicle.
The new Oshkosh Striker Simulator virtual reality training system, one
of the industry’s most sophisticated, will be set up for hands-on
demonstrations. Already on duty at Chicago’s O’Hare International
Airport, the Striker Simulator system is engineered to depict a nearly
endless array of training scenarios for aircraft rescue and fire
fighting organizations. The Striker Simulator system enables more
realistic, more varied, and more intensive training opportunities. The
system delivers a giant leap forward in realism, with actual Striker
vehicle cockpit components and controls along with a series of
widescreen video monitors. The system features a Scenario Toolbox that
enables incident commanders to easily develop highly realistic and
varied emergency situations from an easy-to-use drop-down menu.
