Forgot to mention, they cost 8,43,750 a piece.
That's Rs. 4.70 crores each.
So the order of 29 vehicles is worth Rs. 136 crore!

For that kind of money, you can buy fire engines for almost every single city in India! What a waste of money!

Bigger the deal better for the middlemen and public loots (read servants).

You guys are cribbing about the price of an airport crash tender -- a very specialized piece of equipment.

Won't it take specialized equipment to rescue whatever is possible out of a burning Airbus A380.

The A380 is both, as long as and as wide as a football field.
It carries 550 passengers, weighs 569 tons when fully loaded.
While on the ground, the top of the fuselage is 3 storeys tall
and the top of the tail-fin is 8 storeys tall.

Heat from aircraft fires can result in searing temperatures exceeding 1,000 degrees Celsius.

OT: The A380 costs Rs. 1,250 crore a piece.
Kingfisher has ordered five of them (totally valued at Rs. 6,250 crore) which will be delivered in 2010. By comparision, the six-lane Mumbai Pune Expressway, all 93 km of it including five tunnels, cost our exchequer Rs. 1,630 crore.

One slightly unrelated observation: Have you noticed that driver seating in most AL buses and trucks are slightly offset to the right? I think this must come from the factory itself since irrespective of body builder, this is the position i have seen. It has to be lesson 1 in 'ergonomic disasters'. Can anyone throw some light on this?
