Magirus Airport Engines

Magirus Airport Engines

Our Dragons protect the big birds.

Extinguishing major fires, saving lives, protecting material goods, preserving infrastructure: The tasks faced every day by fire brigades are challenging enough as it is. If we take all these duties together and try to fulfil them simultaneously, we have something very much like the requirement profile of a modern airport. Orders of magnitude, risk factors, hazards, the scope of possible damages – at an airport everything is simply larger. It logically follows that airport fire engines are therefore considered the imperial class amongst fire engines. And for years our DRAGON/IMPACT family has already been leading the pack in this premier league of major players. Their combination of strength and speed, intelligence and protective tenacity make them opponents worthy of mastering more than just fire.
