    European ERT trucks.

    Post by F.Jansen on Tue Oct 19, 2010 2:13 pm

    I had some free time and worked on an lil' idea of mine.
    Let me know what you think of it.

    Urban Rescue 1 (UR-1) is a Squad and Engine in one vehicle and Urban Rescue 2 (UR-2) is a High Rise unit.



    UR-1



    UR-2



    UPDATE:

    Urban Rescue Command 1



    UR-C1

    UPDATE:

    Urban Rescue 3 (Dutch Rescue Truck)



    UR-3

    If we used Euorpean trucks here, those would be cool. I like the ladder.

    Actually it's a lift, or a hydraulic platform. They are quite common here in Europe...

    If you wanna see more of the, Metz is a renown company that makes both aerials and ladders. Smile
    Other manufacturers are Bronto Skylift and Iveco Magirus.

    I've actually been contemplating something along those lines. For Station 2, it will be rescue, and I'll have a large rescue (similar to FDNY's Res1cue) a small, non walk in rescue, a high angle rescue and an urban rescue. I'm considering a marine unit as well. I know for sure I will be using a european model for the urban rescue, since Euro trucks are built for tight turns, fast speeds, and heavy traffic on small roads. Why not use that here for a quick rescue? I'm thinking of ideas for those now, figuring out what I like and what not.

    As for 3-5, only one station of the three will be an urban station, and I may include a european equipment or attack truck

    I'm with Libor to be honest.

    Don't get me wrong, I like your design, your Euro ERT trucks look nice, but I am not a fan of European apparatus. The only ones I like are Dublin and London Fire Brigade, but the rest-I don't like how they look. For some reason, I just hate how everything is behind a door, and I don't like their design.

    I like how on the most common North American apparatus, the pump panel isn't behind a door, hose bed is sometimes uncovered, but commonly just covered with some sort of tarp.

    I guess it's kind of like an "acquired taste" if you know what I mean. You have to grow up with it and see it commonly to like it.

    Honestly, stay with american trucks though. They are very manuverable if you know how to drive them and I have never seen a european rig in the US.

    FDNY Rescue 3 SCUT truck is a european style cab.. Before I release the rescue station units, I'll have a concept art vehicle for what I want for the Urban rescue.

    You mean that new Spartan/Ferrara one? Yeah, that's fine. My department got a new Spartan ladder truck last year, it's really nice.

    I'd like having something like a Spartan. I thought you meant a European company like Mercedes or Volvo, or whatever they have over there, one of those European-only Fire apparatus manufacturers.

    Just so there's no misunderstandings Don't expect a full european fleet. I'll be using one or two european style vehicles in the aresenal, if the concepts go well
