Its main features are as follows:
- Front PTO with water cannon
- Water tank and pump
And this is what I came out with.
The Unimog is used in rough terrains and with the snorkel it's able to cross small rivers. The water cannon lets the firemen extinguish the fire from inside the cab.
The roof contains some tools and the "water pump" which is an old Pneumatic Spring Cylinder. Its main advantage over the new pumps is the ability to suck in the water.
A Pneumatic Airtank is used to store the water.The pump can be lifted to be operated easily and is stored when not in use.
The most important part of the pumping mechanism is the Pneumatic Distribution Block 2 x 4 with Non-return Valve. There is the tank insert on the left, pump in the middle and the water outlet on the right.
More detailed pictures to be found on Brickshelf and further information on my blog.
It's a Fire Truck, so it has to be able to extinguish fire. To proof its ability I made a short video.
