Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service has new weapon to help them deal with emergencies.
It'll be used as a normal firefighting pump at Blackburn and Burnley fire stations for 6 months as part of a trial.
Parts of the vehicle were designed with aircraft fire-fighting in mind.
It includes the Stinger piercing tool designed to hammer its way through aircraft fuselages to jet water inside. But in Lancashire it'll be used to penetrate roofs so the water jet can reach maximum effectiveness inside.
The water output is 2½ times that provided by the usual fire appliance, delivering up to 5 ½ thousand litres per minute.

Police want to speak to a male friend of a 45-year-old woman whose body was found at her home in Lancashire.
Officers were contacted by the ambulance service to a report of a sudden death at a house in Warrenside Close, Blackburn, at about 2.30pm on Wednesday.
The woman, who has not been formally identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

He also has links to the Blackpool and Bolton areas as well as Cheshire and Merseyside.
