OD76TAC004 TACR2 RAF St.Mawgan
The Range Rover 6 x 4 TACR2 (Range Rover Tactical Airfield Crash Rescue Mark 2) was introduced in 1977 as a successor to the earlier TACR1 based on a Land Rover chassis. The vehicles were designed in conjunction with the Ministry of Defence as first response crash rescue appliances to get to the scene of an aircraft incident ahead of the major fire engines. With a capacity of 200 gallons of foam and water and an assortment of rescue gear, their four man crew was well prepared for emergencies.
