The Hardened Water Tender is a modification of a fire truck for high-capacity firefighting. It is designed for use in difficult terrain conditions and in environments with a high degree of risk to the vehicle operators, chassis and fire extinguishing technology. Its design allows for deployment in places with the possibility of occurrence of unexploded ammunition, in places with the possibility of occurrence of pressure cylinders and vessels, in the elimination of consequences of terrorist attacks, in chemical and petrochemical plants, in extensive natural, mainly forest fires, in reconnaissance and monitoring in a contaminated environment, and, if necessary, also for rescue work.
The vehicle design protects vehicle operators, fire extinguishing technologies, and undercarriage parts necessary for driving, especially air distribution system, fuel line, oil fillings and wiring system. The driver's cab is resistant to mechanical damage at ballistic protection level 2 (2a/b according to STANAG 4569), against the effects of environmental pollution by chemical, petroleum or toxic substances, including combat poisonous and biological substances.
The outer shell of the bodywork of the purpose-built superstructure has an increased resistance to mechanical damage, especially when passing through forest vegetation or in the ruins of buildings.
