In 2021, the troops of the Eastern Military District underwent a planned upgrade of fire vehicles.

More than 20 fire tank trucks AC 8.0 – 40 based on the KAMAZ automobile chassis entered the military fire brigades of the military units of the Eastern Military District. The new fire equipment has strengthened the fire protection of logistics depots and bases for storing fuel and lubricants.

Fire trucks, thanks to the updated design solutions used, have increased road traffic, improved ergonomics, more convenient location of fire extinguishing equipment, which can significantly reduce the deployment time by fire brigades and enhance readiness for combat use. The standard equipment includes modern hydraulic devices, which allows you to overcome difficult blockages.

The service life of fire trucks AC 8.0 – 40 is more than 10 years.

For reference: Fire tanker ATs 8.0 – 40 on the KAMAZ chassis has a 6×6 wheel arrangement (off-road chassis) and provides movement on all types of roads.

The regular cabin of the car, located above the engine, provides accommodation for 3 people of the combat crew (including the driver). The combat crew cabin (optional) is of a modular type, located behind the engine, all-metal, two-door, four-seater, heated. Enlarged compartments of the body superstructure make it possible to rationally arrange fire-technical equipment (PTV). A single-stage fire pump with a built-in automatic vacuum water filling system or a combined pump with a high-pressure hose reel with a hose 60 or 90 m long is installed on a fire truck.
