Fire Fighting Turbine



This thing rocks. It's the coolest and newest invention in fire fighting technology. It uses 2 powerful Mig-21 turbines mounted on a Russian tank to blow the water. :| The video demonstrates how it can be used to extinguish burning oil wells (like the ones in Iraq in '91). Simply awesome.

"Hungarian engineers build my idea of a water injected jet turbine for fire suppression and proved its potential extinguishing difficult oil-fires after the gulf war. There is no handling of dynamite any more. This would be also a good fire-fighting tool for wild fires in America!
Text in the video: "The Hungarians replaced the turret from an old Russian tank with 2 turbines from a Mig 21. Water is injected in the exhaust, they throttle up and distinguish the fire."

Comments for Fire Fighting Turbine

Distinguished fire?

So these jets make oil well fires and larger fires sactimous and unique? I think the word should have been Extinguished.

You can have Distinguished Fireman, but you can't a fire. :wall:
