The Silver Eagle Fire Truck is a vehicle that was originally intended to be included in Midtown Madness 2 as a backup if the "trailer-system" failed to work. Obviously, the system did work so the vehicle was replaced by the American LaFrance Fire Truck. The Silver Eagle can still be used with the help of the MM2 Revisited mod or by downloading it from The Midtown Madness Archive . Using the siren is known to cause game crashes if used with some addon cars that have sirens, and if their "addonvehtype.ar" files don't have "vpeagle" in it.
HistoryEditAmerican LaFrance has been producing fire-fighting equipment since 1873 and fire engines since 1903. Over the years, it has made many different types of firefighting vehicles, from airport crash turcks to aerial ladders trucks, such as the American LaFrance Type 700 of the 1950's. In 1995, Freightliner bought out American LaFrance, along with other commercial vehicle brands. It was in this period that the Freightliner Century, Freightliner FLD 120 Classic XL, American LaFrance Fire Truck and Silver Eagle Fire Truck were produced. In 2005, rights to LaFrance were once again sold to Patriach Partners, who still used the same plant, until Daimler Chrysler started using it as an assembly line for the Dodge/Freightliner Sprinter, a rebranded Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. In early 2008, American LaFrance was filed for bankruptsy, but recovered later that year under a new initiative to spread the vehicles' production across the US.
