  1. This is a pretty old design, actually they “invented” it when there were some gas-well fires in Hungary at Zsana and Algyő. The whole thing is a BTR (russian troop vehicle) with a MIG jet engine built on the top, and of course some water pipes to deliver the water. Can extinguish an oil rig fire in less than a minute, as you can see it… 🙂
