Defense Ministry will purchase 600 fire trucks

The fire equipment fleet of the Ministry of Defense will be supplemented with special cars AC-6-40. This was reported to Interfax by an official spokesman for the department of the press service and information of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for logistics support Alexander Kolpakov.

He noted that new fire engines are replacing those vehicles whose service life has expired or is close to completion.

According to him, in three years the troops will receive over 560 units of special vehicles designed to extinguish fires. This will allow for a third to update the fire equipment park of the Ministry of Defense.

More 80 from old cars will be sent to military forest areas to extinguish forest fires.

    Good! Is a foreign manufacturer already defined, or finally, they will let our business do without question?

      It seems like in the photo "Ural" with the inscription АЦ-6-40, which foreign manufacturer?

    And I think just a planned replacement. Write off a large batch of cars, and accordingly procure. And in comparison with the cost of the purchase of military equipment, the purchase of fire engines is not such a big waste. In terms of the amounts are not so large. Probably less than one simple plane.

      However, strategically, fire engines are far more important than multiple aircraft!

        Trailer,
        It depends on what to stew and where .. so. which is not a fact, not a fact! we have a lot of places. where it will be difficult or long to get to the car .. and the plane is simpler, and vice versa .. if the city, then by plane, it’s not very good to put out .. so depending on where!

        The base does not play a special role here. At least the Urals, at least KamAZ. There is no fundamental difference and never will be. The main thing is the AC-6-40 itself, as such, as specialized equipment for fighting fires ...

        But Kag-Be didn’t quite like the phrase that old tankers would be sent to military forestry ... Surely they would be used to extinguish forest fires ... Forest fire is a joke thing, and old equipment, it is old equipment. .. Is it really a pity to fork out for a new one for such purposes? ..
        And then, after all, tea at the Olympic venues in Sochi must have been plundered unmatched by more than all these special machines put together ... wink laughing YYY
