Brandweer Antwerpen MAN powder init

In some accident you cannot use water to put out the fire. In that case you can use powder. This MAN 26.364, built by Rosenbauer, is a truck that carries that powder. In 2 tanks they transport 3000 kg of powder. With the monitor on top they can spread it over 80 metres. Also on the sideways they have pistols that can spread the powder over 20 metres.

This is an interesting vehicle, I have never seen a truck that carries powder on such a large scale. It would be great to see some pics of it in use!
