The Tactical Fire Fighting Truck from Oshkosh

The Tactical Fire Fighting Truck from Oshkosh is engineered like no other. It combines the superior mobility of the Oshkosh HEMTT M977 with the unmatched firefighting capabilities of Pierce fire apparatus. The TFFT is a multi-functional vehicle that's ready to deploy whenever and wherever needed for aircraft rescue, fuel storage protection, structural firefighting, wildland firefighting, rescue, extraction and homeland defense missions.

The TFFT from Oshkosh Truck Corporation puts you in command.

Military Grade Fire Fighting Power.
The tough and rugged Tactical Fire Fighting Truck (TFFT) is
engineered like no other vehicle on the planet. It combines the
superior mobility and military prowess of the Oshkosh® HEMTT with
the #1 firefighting vehicle in the world, Pierce. The result is a
multifunctional crossbred vehicle that’s ready to deploy at a
moment’s notice for any severe aircraft rescue, fuel storage
protection, structural firefighting, wildland firefighting and rescue
extrication in almost any terrain.
Go mobile.
Wherever support is needed, from off road to no road, the TFFT will
get you there. Built on an incredible 210-inch (5.33 m) wheelbase,
it features all-wheel drive, a 445 hp (335.97 kw) engine and is rated
at 60 percent gradability at GVW. Its cruising range is 400 miles (640 k),
and fording clearance is 48 inches (121.92 cm).
Tough as nails.
Proven, severe-duty HEMTT components are standard throughout
the TFFT, meeting the highest levels of Oshkosh quality and reliability.
The body is constructed of high impact galvanneal steel, with a
unique steel support system. Pierce installs corrosion resistant
stainless steel plumbing for a long, durable life and easy
maintenance. Firefighting plumbing is stainless steel for longer life
and proven corrosion resistance. One of the key advantages of the
Oshkosh-produced HEMTT and the TFFT is the easy access and
interchangeability of major parts within the vehicle series.
In addition, systems are designed for accessibility, making routine
maintenance quick and easy.
Go to battle in full gear.
The TFFT cab and crew quarters can carry six firefighters; five in full
SCBA gear. The TFFT is equipped with a 1,000-gallon (3800 l) water
tank, 2,000 feet (608 m) of hose, 1,000 gpm (3800 lpm) pump, and
roof and bumper turrets with in-cab remote controls. There are
generous storage compartments for carrying everything needed
onto the scene, including a hydraulic generator, TNT® rescue tools,
saws, air-lifting bag kit, extrication equipment, and EMS equipment.
We’ve got your back.
