Back in the 77-8 strike some MK 9s were deployed , IIRC they were certainly deployed to Liverpool. As the TACRs had been replaced and Im certain they sitting in store somewhere, was any thought given to deploying them?

Hi Canberra, If you are talking 77/78, the 4 man RAF FF crews located one or 2 crews per county were there for BA plus a foam capability greater than that which the GG could provide eg at Hull they had a DP2 and a MK 8 later both replaced with an RAF domestic tender; the problem with using a TACR1 or 2 was the very small amount of premixed AFFF they carried.
