AT-802F Fire Boss
When equipped with amphibious floats installed by Wipaire, the AT-802F becomes the Fire Boss scooper air tanker, able to land on and scoop water from nearby lakes, rivers and reservoirs. From a nearby water source, the 802F Fire Boss can deliver up to 14,000 gallons per hour for extended attack or ground support. An unimproved runway or water-side ramp and fuel are all it needs to be a highly cost-effective forward attack air tanker.
Powering the Fire Boss is the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-67F turboprop engine. With 1600 horsepower, it has more than enough muscle to keep the Fire Boss hauling its payload and maneuvering in mountainous and/or hot operating environments.
