SEI Industries Ltd. is pleased to announce the delivery of six Bambi Buckets to the AASF, Army Aviation Support Facility in Austin Texas for use in the new LUH, UH-72 Lakota aircraft program. The Bambi Bucket, 120 USG/460 Litres capacity model has been chosen as the Weapon of Choice for the UH-72 Lakota aircraft, the military version of the Eurocopter EC 145. Initially marketed as the UH-145, the Lakota was selected as the winner of the United States Army’s Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) program.
 
The standard valve Bambi Bucket is the work horse of the helicopter firefighting industry. Sturdy, reliable, simple to use, with over 25 years of proven field work. The United States Army as well as many military and government agencies worldwide, as seen recently in Japan with the devastating earthquake and tsunami, have chosen the Bambi Bucket to provide first and lasting response to wildland and interurban firefighting demands. A quality product, backed by a well stocked parts department and full team of dedicated support professionals.
 
For what looks to be a potentially bad year for wildland fire in the central United States, the Texas AASF will be Bambi Bucket prepared.
