Colet Jaguar K15 (Fire Engine Photos)

The K-15 Jaguar is a technically advanced fire truck, designed to contain and extinguish aircraft fires, with more speed and precision than the standard fire trucks. The Jaguar can reach speed up to 83 miles per hour and go from 0 to 50 in less than 20 seconds, fast for a fire truck.

Commonly known as a crash truck, the truck is capable of hauling 1,500 gallons of water and 100 gallons of foam, and can extend its boon nearly 300 feet, three times the length of what other fire trucks can produce.

The truck is also capable of moving the most inclement weather conditions, as the truck has an infrared imaging visual system on board which gives it the ability to see where it is going at all times as well as having a Global Positioning System, which can map and pinpoint any position on the airfield.
