Aviation security starts and ends on the ground

Airfield allrounder

With the Z-Class, we are able to offer the perfect airport rescue and firefighting vehicle for the different requirements at the airport. A modular concept allows the configuration of 4×4 up to 8×8 vehicles in accordance with ICAO on a uniform platform.
