Random browsing of Japanese fire sites yields this monster, found on www.rescue-119.com. Giant hose tender? Special pumping engine? Web translator provides a few details. Mitsubishi engine. 10,000 liter tank. 100 liter pumpers, plural. 100 liters of Class A foam. Can also be utilized to supply potable water after an earthquake or during water shortage. Guess it's a tanker. Click to enlarge:





with built in water filtration from what i can make out – have you noticed that none of their vehicles have chevrons on their rear ends?
