You gave us feedback, and we listened. The Striker is focused on our customers’ needs. Oshkosh celebrated technologies have been developed through our five core innovation themes: Firefighting, Vehicle, Safety, Reliability, and Environment. Our team of engineers have leveraged shared technologies across Oshkosh Corporation to provide the best-in-class Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting vehicle. Your mission is our priority.
OSHKOSH® POWER UNITER™ – An Oshkosh designed and manufactured component to meet NFPA 414 Pump and Roll Requirements by bringing two engines and transmissions into power for the water pump and the vehicle. It allows you to engage the water pump at any time and at any speed.
SNOZZLE® HRET – The Oshkosh Snozzle High Reach Extendable Turret is available in 50 ft (15.2 m) and 65 ft (19.8 m) configurations to allow outstanding reach for your emergency ARFF response. The piercing tip length is designed to reach cargo containers from any angle.
OSHKOSH K-FACTOR™ Alignment System– The Oshkosh K-Factor system rapidly displays the position of the Snozzle piercing tip to the fuselage, eliminating depth perception issues to maximize precision.
CROSSLAYS – With the optional twin crosslays on the Striker, you can have up to 600 feet (183 m) of 1¾” (45 mm) hose at your disposal – accessible from either side of the vehicle.
BRONZE PUMP – Long ago, you asked for a corrosion resistant pump body. In response, Oshkosh made it available on the Striker ARFF vehicle. That tradition of excellence will continue to carry forward on the Striker vehicle.
ELECTRONIC FOAM PROPORTIONING – With our pressure governed system, the water pump knows what is required to meet your fire suppression needs and runs the engine just enough to meet those needs. This allows your vehicle to use less fuel – reducing overall wear and tear – yet still perform as only a Striker vehicle can.
ADVANCED FIRE SUPRESSION TECHNOLOGIES – Firefighters face new challenges every day. The Striker vehicle is designed to be ready for the latest technologies still under development, including ultra high-pressure water, compressed air foam systems (CAFS), and clean agent delivery systems.
CAB USER EXPERIENCE – Designed with the firefighter in mind, the cockpit has ergonomic features, thoughtful placement of buttons, and a focus on human factors.
TAK-4® INDEPENDENT SUSPENSION – Developed by Oshkosh, our independent suspension has developed into the gold standard of mobility for heavy-duty vehicles, equipment, and fire apparatus. TAK-4 independent suspension enhances vehicle mobility, off road speed, load carrying capacity, and ride quality while controlling life cycle costs.
REAR STEER – Available for mechanical rear axle steering providing a shorter turning radius and reduced tire scrub.
LOGICAL CONTROLS – Color-coded controls to clearly identify what function and agent you are utilizing, which allows you to quickly and confidently focus on the task at hand.
ACCELERATION – The Striker ARFF vehicle has superior acceleration performance while meeting the latest US EPA and EU emission requirements. Designed with a low center of gravity and tight turning radius, you’ll confidently drive the Striker vehicle resulting in a controlled ride.
Safety is built into all aspects of the Striker vehicle– from the cab design to the certified testing for static side slope stability and structural integrity.
CAB VISIBILITY – The Striker ARFF vehicle offers unparalleled visibility with our center steer driving position. The cab offers 98 ft2 (9.1 m2) glass, a 254 degree horizontal viewing plane, and 8.8 ft (2.7 m) of forward visibility.
360° CAMERA – The Striker vehicle has an available 360° camera, offering a bird’s eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings for excllent situational awareness.
Oshkosh CARE™ (Carcinogen Awareness and Reduction to Exposure) CLEAN CAB – Oshkosh has a variety of optional features to manage firefighter carcinogen exposure. Features include cleanable seats and interior surfaces, exhaust options, and custom add-ons like shower heads to wash off soot, exhaust particles and other carcinogens.
