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.

Lancashire Police have have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to after a council worker was assaulted in Burnley.
It happened at around 10.30am on Saturday, November 12 when the 37-year-old victim, who works as a road sweeper, was working on St James’ Road near to Costa Coffee.

We are keen to speak to the man pictured in connection with the incident and would urge anyone who recognises him or who has any information that could assist us to come forward.”
The victim suffered a fractured eye socket which resulted in him needing metal plates.
