Dennis / Thornycroft Nubian Major Foam Tender MK9
The introduction of the MK9 along with TACR1 and new foams began a new era in crash fire-fighting. The MK 9 has a large tank capacity of 1250 gallons for water and 130 gallons for foam liquid. This meant that the MK9 did not need to rely upon extra water being delivered from DP trucks. The MK9 also had an impressive jet throw from its monitor which made it a particularly powerful and effective tool in fighting large aircraft fires. Seen at the Museum of RAF Firefighting.
