Spotted this 6x6 monster.
Hi guys i was testing my jeep on the Banglore-Mumbai highway and saw this Huge monster airport fire fighting truck on a trailer. It was one of the best fire brigade trucks i have ever seen in real life till date. It is a 6x6 and has coil spring suspension all around.I could not get the in cab pictures but from the glass i could see it was fitted with sport style seats and sport type 5 or 6 point harness seatbelts. From the name i feel its a German make and on asking the driver he said it was heading to Chinnai airport. Check these photos.

It is an Austrian company. There is a thread somewhere here. AAI had ordered them for the major airports in the country; was in the news some years ago, IIRC.
Edit: Found the thread/post

I too saw about 6+ of these trucks coming from the Wadala road (road leading to Imax) climbing the Bridge and going on the Eastern Express Highway.

I saw them around 8 months back 3 of them lined up inside delhi airport .I am telling you man i could see numerous strobe lights around it blinking like nobody's business.It was just so cool the moment you see the truck you say mannnnnnnn this will definitely control the fire i can bet on that.
Moreover on a lighter note i could see the name of the company or truck is rosenbaer.Does it has something to do with moserbaer?.

I saw these at the Delhi and Kolkata airports. But never got a chance to see them on roads.

these monsters are performing fire dril almost daily at about 9-10am at Mumbai AIrport.. the most weird thing is that they do the mock drill right besides where thehre are some other extra aircrafts are parked and that is very next to the fire station, arent mock drills suppsoed to be done at a remote area?
