This is my FDNY Tanker 8 Truck based on a MACK Truck; Tanker 8 consists of 1 crew member and can store many litters of water to assist with the bigger fires and help to fill up other trucks. The truck has a range of different on-board equipment such as heavy-duty on-board water pumps to pump water out of rivers to fill the tanker up, the tanker also has 4 jet valves to help assist with fires, the truck can also get water from fire hydrants to transport it to areas of need. The truck has lots of storage for barriers, cones and water hoses so that it is prepared for big fires, the truck also features a heavy duty pumper panel to monitor the water input and output in litters per minute.

Quoting Bob K David, its not a bad piece. If I may, if you are trying to make a Mack R truck, then you will need to move the front wheels under the engine and not the cab. I believe this is the look you are trying to achieve: http://www.fdnytrucks.com/files/html/otherstates/Bergen%20County/Carlstadt.htm I don't know if you are trying to mimic the FDNY, but the color scheme is off. Current FDNY trucks are white over red. I agree with Sven and say make it a different department, this way you can make up your own color scheme. I would also add a dump tank to your tanker (or at least the appearance of one), Do all of this and you'd be in pretty good shape.
Thank you for that realy, realy good comment and thanks for your time for writing this, i will take all of this advise on board and upload my new version of it and maybe create my own fire department with my own colour scheme, thanks again - David :)

Quoting Sven Jagdmann This is also a really nice Truck with really cool details but it's also a fictional FDNY Unit. You should start your own department with this design and the rigs. They are really good :)
Thanks again Sven, i might just do that, more rigs to come soon!
