2. August 2017

The fourth generation of renowned Panther 8x8 convinces with improved power, safety and comfort 

The Panther family aircraft rescue and fire fighting vehicles have been indispensable on major airports all over the world since 1992. The fourth generation Panther is equipped with a new supply pump and cabin. The cabin is not only safer but also bigger and provides an enhanced view to the outside due to its larger windshield. The Panther’s driving and extinguishing performance has also been improved compared to its predecessors.  

Thanks to Spirit Design , an international strategic design company headquartered in Vienna, Rosenbauer’s Flagship has also received two major design awards: The Red Dot Award 2016 and the iF Design Award 2016. 

Especially in Asian and Arabic airports the 8x8 fire fighting truck is to be found in high numbers. The biggest customers are Beijing, Shanghai-Pudong, Guangzhou and Hongkong. But also in India, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban Rosenbauer’s Panthers have been in use for years. 

The first Panthers of the new production line will be delivered to Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, Dubai International Airport as Vienna-Schwechat, the latter replacing all other equipment with new fire fighting vehicles by Rosenbauer
