This Is a Fire Truck

If firefighters need to respond to a call to a bad neighborhood, this would be the way to arrive in safety and style.

The Omsktransmash СПМ is the Russian Army's new armored firefighting vehicle. It's a 60-ton tracked vehicle made from T-72 and T-80 tank parts. Jalopnik reports:

“СПМ is designed to extinguish fires and conduct rescue operations in the arsenals, bases and warehouses storing explosives, clearing the aisles to the fire, laying firebreaks in forest fires,” the company explains. […]

Only three people crew the behemoth firefighting tank, which looks to be about 30 meters long. It holds 25 cubic meters of water and other extinguishing agents, which it can spray up to a 100 meters.

I want one. You know--for puttering around town and going shopping.
