Description

Monobrake: a low-slung search and recovery utility vehicle capable of either travelling along monorail tunnels or, by using its front-mounted telescopic arm, can be attached to an overhead monorail line for greater speed. Used in the episode " The Perils of Penelope". [29] This is a big playset with Thunderbird 2 and Thunderbird 4 inside, plus two mini figures to pilot the vehicles. The contents of Thunderbird 2 's Modules differ slightly from the original series. Module 1 specialises in carrying fire-fighting equipment and contains large speakers and subwoofers topside that are used primarily to emit low-frequency sound waves for use against large fires. It also comes with two under-slung liquid nitrogen cannons. Module 2 contains three "Pods," special units that can be converted and customised into several different rescue vehicles such as the Mole. Module 3 contains electromagnetic "grabs", large claws designed to lift objects heavier than the standard electromagnetic cables can handle. The nose of the craft also contains a set of grabs that can hold a set of seats for lifting people. Module 4 contains Thunderbird 4 just like Pod 4 did in the original series. Module 5 consists of a fuel pump to refuel other vessels as well as seats like Module 3. Module 6, like Module 4 is capable of carrying Thunderbird 4, but it is used in rare occasions of Thunderbird 2 having to travel into space.

In the 2004 live-action film, Penelope also owned several pink Ford cars, at least one of which was named "FAB-8".

FAB Facts: Which Thunderbirds Elevator Car Crashed in Trapped in the Sky?. 14 April 2021 – via YouTube. Thunderbird 4 does not play an active role in the films Thunderbirds Are Go (1966) and Thunderbird 6 (1968). It does, however, appear in the opening title sequence of Thunderbirds Are Go. In Thunderbird 6, Jeff Tracy gives a "run down" on each of the Thunderbirds machines, where Thunderbird 4 makes a brief appearance. The use of these models in Anderson's Supermarionation productions, beginning with Supercar, was a significant advance in television production. Dirt and wear were applied to add realism and counter the miniature models' toy-like appearance. [ citation needed] Thunderbird fleet [ edit ]

With a maximum speed of 15,000 miles per hour (24,000km/h) ( Mach 19.7), it can reach anywhere on Earth within an hour's flight if a great circle route can be flown. Thunderbird 1 is hangared beneath the main house on Tracy Island and launches vertically from a pad camouflaged by a swimming pool that slides aside. Thunderbirds Episode Guide". Fanderson.org.uk. Bradford, UK: Fanderson. Archived from the original on 30 October 2013. In " The Uninvited", Thunderbird 1 was shot down by the Zombite Fighters and crashed into the desert but Scott was soon found by two explorers.Century 21 Tech Talk - Episode Three: Thunderbird 2 | Hosted by Brains from Thunderbirds , retrieved 25 April 2020 Thunderbird 2 is 250 feet (76m) long with a wingspan of 180 feet (55m) and a height of 60 feet (18m). A long-range craft, it is capable of reaching anywhere in the world without refuelling, often shown flying just above sea level and has a maximum speed of 6,000 miles per hour (9,700km/h), which is roughly Mach 7.82 (but cruises at 2,000 miles per hour (3,200km/h), roughly Mach 2.6). It therefore arrives at the danger zone later than Thunderbird 1. [9] Destructor cannon, steel spears, automatic camera detector, electromagnetic wiping beam, radar-jamming system This huge yellow tree-felling machine was featured in the episode "Path of Destruction". The Crablogger is powered by a nuclear reactor, but its built-in wood processing plant requires the chemical fuel 'Superon'. It was designed by Jim Lucas of Robotics International in England. The machine was equipped with two large arms with a giant central chainsaw which would cut a tree at the base before passing it through an opening at the front. Inside the Crablogger's processing plant, the tree was reduced to wood pulp which was regularly collected by tankers.

During a rescue mission on Jupiter's moon Europa in the episode "Deep Search", it was shown that Thunderbird 4 can also be transported in Thunderbird 3, although it was also provided with various new features to cope with the icy conditions on Europa. When not in use, Thunderbird 4 is housed both in one of Thunderbird 2 's Modules and a water tank seen in the main Tracy Island hangar so it can launch from the island when necessary. Firefly: a fire-proof vehicle used for demolition and fire-fighting work. Used in " City of Fire" and " Terror in New York City". [29] [33] In the remake series Thunderbirds Are Go, Thunderbird 1 retains the same role it has in the original series. However, like all of the Thunderbirds, it can be piloted remotely via Scott's wrist console. Thunderbird 1 also possesses an electromagnetic cable that can be fired from the open cargo bay, allowing it to lift or tow objects. The electromagnet at the end of the cable can be swapped for a clip. It also carries a Skypod, a short-range flying capsule that allows Scott to get in close to a target where Thunderbird 1 's size would be a disadvantage, and several remote-operated drones that can be deployed to search multiple areas or places that cannot be reached by conventional means. Thunderbird 5 is located in a geosynchronous orbit, 22,400 miles (36,000km) above the Pacific Ocean and believed to be above Tracy Island. Thunderbird 5 is electronically cloaked to avoid detection from ground-based radar or other spacecraft's sensor systems.

Thunderbird 2 Thunderbird 2 – ready for action!From the episode "EOS" onward, the station is co-operated by the artificial intelligence EOS, which has access to all of the station's systems. The entity, which was created by accident in the previous episode, "Runaway," originally had a violent sense of self-preservation extending into paranoia, which led to it seizing control of the station and attempting to kill John Tracy. However, John can convince it that no one is threatening it and it becomes his on-board companion, albeit with a mischievous streak. Thunderbird Shadow (or Thunderbird S) is the newest addition to International Rescue's fleet of vehicles in the 2015 reboot series Thunderbirds Are Go. DOMO ( Demolition and Object Moving Operator): a restraint vehicle with three suction arms that, by using artificial gravity fields can restrain or lift unstable structures or clear the disaster zone of heavy objects prior to the use of other Pod Vehicles.

[29] In " Terror in New York City", Thunderbird 2 was fired upon and crippled by the USN Sentinel and remained out of operation for the rest of the episode. The vehicle was subsequently repaired using parts sourced from several different aircraft companies to protect the secrets of the aircraft's design.

Since Thunderbirds first aired in 1965, demand for Thunderbird 2 models has never ceased. From the legendary die-cast version produced by Dinky, to the later Matchbox version in the 1990s and countless other versions made from a host of different materials, there have been plenty of Thunderbird 2 models to please fans. This one is rather special though, we have to admit. Hearn, Marcus (2015). Thunderbirds: The Vault. London, UK: Virgin Books. p.48. ISBN 978-0-753-55635-1. Thunderbird Shadow was designed by Shōji Kawamori, best known as the creator and mechanical designer of the Macross franchise.

Fab 1, or to give it its official title, "Lady Penelope's Fab 1", is the new Dinky model of the futuristic car owned by "Lady Penelope Crighton-Ward" and driven by "Parker" of the television puppet series "Thunderbirds" (you must have heard of International Rescue!) It is, in my opinion, by far the best and most amazing toy ever to have appeared in the Dinky range or, for that matter. in any comparable range. It is, however, primarily a toy, a fact which I must stress to quiet the mutterings of serious scale model collectors, but it is a toy only because its prototype does not exist in real life. In all other respects, it's a top-quality, solidly-built model and is certainly an exact replica of the T.V. original. In fact, it's made by Dinky for Century 21 Toys Ltd., the 'owners' of the original. In the context of the series, most of the advanced machines that appeared in the show belonged to the International Rescue organisation and were used during rescues. These were known as "Thunderbirds", of which there were five core machines and a variety of other rescue craft. It was after these that the series was named. In the show, all of the International Rescue vehicles were designed by the organisation's resident technical genius known as Brains.
