A very well equipped truck. Note the 15 meter extension ladder, hook ladder and extensive array of secondary ground ladders. The characteristic one-man hose carts free up a lot of locker space, despite the 3300 liter tank, and the single first aid hose reel is all that is needed. BSPP members are discouraged from relying too much on the 23mm reels, and these units carry pre connected 45mm attack lines, which flow up to 450 LPM using variable flow shutoff spray/jet nozzles.

The most recent deliveries have a novel new compressed air foam system, which uses a solution which can be used on both class A and B fires, depending on the concentration levels. This eliminates the need to have two separate systems.

The numerous CA "accompanying lorries" (combination foam tenders and hose layers) - and their dedicated foam tenders - still do however carry type B compound and air foam induction and aeration branches.
