I know there is one of these stationed at Millmerran at the moment. As I understand, the main reason that the Land Cruiser went there is they missed out on the first 2 consignments of the 2 stretcher Sprinters. The next consignment of the sprinters they can get their hands on is late in the year.

Was talking to an officer about these units, and they said the difference between the technology in the F350 and the Cruiser is like chalk and cheese.

These units are approximately 3m tall, so there is a lot of weight mounted fairly high.

I've seen a couple out around Blackwater and Emerald. What I found interesting was once when I was in Blackwater the ambo driving had orange highvis QAS uniform and the cruiser was fitted with orange mine spec lights as well as the red and blues. I thought it also had a CAS-RF unit fitted, but it could have been something else. At first I thought it might have been a site paramedic or first responder, but the uniform and ambulance was fitted with QAS emblems.
