VANGUARDS 1/43 JAGUAR XJ12 SERIES 1 SILVERSTONE FIRE TENDER



The first of seven Jaguar based Silverstone Fire Tenders, RHP133H started life as an X16 and was fitted with a V12 engine during its first career as an engineering development cart within Jaguar. The fire fighting equipment was designed by Chubb, but fitted to the vehicle at Jaguar. It involved fitting a 20-gallon tank in place of the back seat and a coiled hose in the boot. With the tank pressurised 100 gallons of AFFF foam can be discharged in 34 seconds.
