Meet a monster fire fighting vehicle know as the “Big Wind”.
It is not only the biggest (in terms of weight) “fire engine”, Big Wind is also the most powerful fire extinguisher in the world.

Big Wind was a weapon created for battling oil fires during war in the Middle East.

In 1991 during the first Gulf war, a retreating Iraqi army was ordered by Saddam Hussein to set Kuwaiti oil fields on fire.

The specs are massive. First off, it churns out 8,000 gallons of water per minute.

That water is thrust out of its 2 pumps at a rate of 27,000 pound-foot.
