Running into a burning building with the heat blazing and the smoke filling up their lungs, firefighters have to deal with hell to keep us safe. The Magirus Group is looking to make their jobs a little easier with the AirCore Fire Extinguishing System, which is made to handle more dangerous fires with explosive threats.

This vehicle is a jet turbine-assisted firefighting robot that can be controlled remotely by a single operator from as far as 500 meters away. It uses two effective modes of dousing flames: high-water flow and water mist. In high-water flow mode, it’s able to blast 3,500 liters a minute up to a distance of 80 meters. On the other hand, the water mist mode can project up to 1,500 liters of water per minute up to 60 meters away. With its hunt-and-kill design, it can attack fires continuously as they move and also clear out smoke with its turbine fan. This beast has a 65-horsepower water-cooled motor with an operation time of five to seven hours on a single tank and even has a bulldozer blade to sweep away obstacles. This rolling monster is a firefighter’s best friend.
