Mk 7

The Mk 7 was introduced in 1965 to supplement the Mk 6 fleet, and basically consisted of a DP2 chassis fitted with Mk 6 foam equipment.  With improved reliability, a suction eye and water pumping capability,  the Mk 7 was a more versatile primary one foam tender.  It was also easier to transport by air and saw service world wide.
