Armored Russian Fire Truck is Ready for the Apocalypse
Most fire trucks are sturdy vehicles built to take a beating. This one, however, looks more like something sent to destroy your town rather than save your home from a fire. The Omsktransmash СПМ is a Russian fire truck that puts all others to shame. According to the Jalopnik, this monster fire truck debuted at the 2013 International Exhibition of Russia Arms and people have been placing orders to own one.

They've built two so far, and will be shipping them out to the Russian military this month. This isn't an ordinary fire truck, but one designed to handle the absolute worst. It can put out fires, conduct rescue operations in warehouses and arsenals, and even lay firebreaks for forest fires.
Its exceptional abilities come from its sturdy build, which includes parts of T-72 and T-80 tanks and an armored cab. It holds 882 cubic feet of water that can spray that water up to 328 feet. With the pressure coming out of that nozzle, mere humans better be sure to stay the heck out of this thing's way.
