Striker® 6X6

Striker®

The Striker® lets you lead like never before. Greater fire suppression, control, safety and versatility maximize your response like no other truck can.


Featuring the same exceptional fire suppression, control, safety and durability as the Striker® 4×4, with a larger capacity water tank. The Striker® 6×6 advances runway firefighting like nothing else in its class.

The Striker® 6×6 delivers:

  • Innovative Fire Suppression
  • Unmatched Chassis Performance
  • Advanced Safety Systems
  • Unsurpassed Reliability and Durability
  • Smart Design

The conditions may be extreme. But so are the solutions. Each Oshkosh ARFF vehicle has been inspired by the specific demand of the runway while being built around the unique needs of firefighters.

Innovative Fire Suppression

CROSSLAYS –With the optional twin crosslays on the Striker, you can have up to 183 m of 45mm hose at your disposal– accessible from either side of the vehicle.

LARGE PUMP OPTION – Larger planes mean greater challenges. Oshkosh offers an optional 10,000 lpm pump to provide all of the water and/or foam you will need to meet these challenges.

BRONZE PUMP – Long ago, you asked for a corrosion resistant pump body. In response, Oshkosh made it available on the Striker®. That tradition of excellence carries forward on the Striker®.

ELECTRONIC FOAM PROPORTIONING –With this all new pressure governed system, the water pump knows what is required to meet your fire suppression needs and runs the engine just enough to meet those needs. This allows your vehicle to use less fuel – reducing overall wear and tear – yet still perform as only a Striker® can.

ADVANCED FIRE SUPPRESSION TECHNOLOGIES – Firefighters face new challenges every day. The new Striker® is designed to be ready for the latest technologies still under development, including ultra high-pressure water, compressed air foam systems (CAFS), and clean agent delivery systems.

Unmatched Chassis Performance

The new Striker® provides fast acceleration – a full second faster to 50 miles per hour – and delivers increased fuel economy from the 697 hp Tier 4i/Euro 5 emission compliant engine. It also delivers a lower center of gravity, tighter turning radius and, with the help of TAK-4® all-wheel independent suspension, the Striker delivers a confident and controlled ride.

LIGHTER WEIGHT – The Striker® is designed to be lighter by 5%. That means faster acceleration, for one thing. Also, better stopping distance. Best of all, it still possesses that quality and toughness that Oshkosh is known for.

Advanced Safety Systems

Safety is built into all aspects of the Striker® – from the cab design to the certified testing for static side slope stability and structural integrity.

IMPROVED BRAKE TORQUE – With our new disc brake option we have improved brake torque by 11%. So, when you need to stop, you stop.

NITROGEN BOTTLE STORAGE – The Striker® provides excellent access to the vertically stored nitrogen bottles for easy and safe removal and reloading.

Unsurpassed Reliability and Durability

Oshkosh vehicles are renowned for their reliability and durability–and the Striker® continues the tradition.

ACCESS – Service technicians told us that easy access to the engine compartment is critical. Open up the rear door on the Striker® and you will find an exclusive walk-in service port with easy access. And, if necessary, the entire powertrain can be removed for maintenance – without involving the water tank.

FILTER AND FLUID CHECK –The Striker® has a single, easy to access area with all filters and fluid checks including: engine oil, transmission fluid, and power divider fluid. One location means you can know, with confidence and in no time at all, that your Striker® is ready for action.

SERVICEABILITY – Well thought out and well designed electrical, hydraulic, and pneumatic line routing means unsurpassed access to wires, oil, and air lines for faster diagnostic time.

24/7/365 SERVICE – Our worldwide after sales service dealer network is ready when you need us.

Smart Design

VISIBILITY – With 84 square feet of glass and a 238-degree horizontal viewing radius at eye level, the Striker® offers unparalleled visibility. Utilizing the Oshkosh center steer driving position, you will feel like you are in the cockpit of a fighter jet.

FORWARD VISIBILITY – We have improved your ability see the ground below you. NFPA requires you to see 20 feet out from the front bumper. The Striker® allows you to see 12.3 feet. You will have to sit in this cab to believe it.

ERGONOMICS – Completely redesigned cab instrumentation is logical and purpose built. Through extensive ergonomic research with users around the world, we observed how you used the vehicle and designed each control, switch, and instrument to be intuitive and ready when you are.

LOGICAL CONTROLS – Color-coded controls to clearly identify what function and/or what agent you are utilizing, allows you, quickly and with confidence, focus on the task at hand.

IMPROVED STORAGE – You said you needed more dedicated storage. We listened. With over 1.8 m3, the Striker® has plenty of room for everything you could possibly need.
