Check out this nifty machine bought recently by the fire department of Luoyang in Henan province. It’s a little monster that Shanghai should have had to fight against that catastrophic Jingan fire late last year. Built especially to fight high-rise fires, the RMB3 million ($456,000) jet-powered water cannon can spew up to 4 tonnes of water per minute at a range of 50 metres. If the city had invested in this little machine ahead of time, imagine how many more lives we would have been able to save?
Anyhow, someone please keep this monster away from the Egyptian army. You really don’t want to see them using this on people next:
