The fire-engine can spray four tonnes of water every four minutes over 120 meters. The system is especially useful by extremely hot and dangerous fires where humans can’t come close, such as in chemical plants, weapon factories and fuel stores.

In action! I asked what engine was exactly in there but a salesman only told me it was a “fighter engine”. This kinda information is a bit sensitive in China… So I asked around and found it the engine is likely from a Shenyang J-6, the Chinese version of the MiG-19.
