The Range Rover 6x4 TACR2, (Tactical Aircraft Crash Rescue) was introduced in 1977 as a successor to the earlier TACR1 based on a Land Rover chassis. The vehicles were designed in conjunction with the Ministry of Defence as first response crash rescue vehicles to get to the scene of an aircraft incident and rescue the crew before the major fire appliances arrived. They carried 200 gallons of foam and water, an assortment of rescue gear and operated with a four man crew. Over 200 TACR2s were built by three different companies and this release features one of the 18 examples built by HCB-Angus Ltd.
Various schemes and liveries were applied to these uniquely designed vehicles during their service; this model features an olive green and black camouflage scheme of an example housed in the Museum of RAF Firefighting at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire. Registered with a military number plate 51 AG 49, the Land Rover carries many emergency vehicle features including roof ladders and roof hose reel, side hose detail, blue roof beacon and spotlight, rear floodlight and front hazard lights. The rear is moulded to give a roller shutter effect. Inside, the seating is light tan in contrast to the dark grey dashboard and steering wheel.
