MK11 SCAMMELL SUPER MAJOR 6X6 GLOSTER SARO CRASH TENDER

The Mk11 was a development of the Mk10 it entered service in 1985 and took over the Primary 1 crash truck role from the Mk9. Some 24 were built in two versions, sixteen Mk11s and eight Mk11As. The Mk11A had an electro- hydraulic operated high access ladder and cage assembly fitted with a BCF applicator to enable crews to reach the tail-mounted engine of the Lockheed Tri-Star aircraft. Some of these appliances were fitted with new cabs later in their lives.

It could also be used in a domestic fire-fighting role and apart from the normal fire-fighting small gear it carried BA sets, hydraulic rescue kit, a 500watt generator and a 100kg tank of BCF.

The vehicle on display saw service at R.A.F. Lossiemouth, R.A.F. Lyneham
