Comments Off on Information from Norinco says the gun has a firing ran


 of 8 kilometers, and each of its shells can scatter dry extinguishing agents over about 20 squa

re meters. The gun features high mobility and accuracy, and is suitable for suppressing big fires, it said.

This is not the first time Norinco, the country’s largest arms producer for land weapons, has enter

ed the realm of firefighting. Before the gun, the company had developed and sold a series of firefighting tanks.

With the chassis and armor of a combat tank, the vehicles can protect crew members from fire, explosions and bui

lding collapses, and can cross half-meter-high obstacles or 2-meter-wide trenches. They have automatic spray dev

ices and fireproof coatings that can keep scorching heat out of the vehicles’ interiors.

The tanks can get closer to the scene than a fire engine for search-and-rescue missions, Norinco said.

Using 520-horsepower diesel engines and equipped with hydraulic devices

, the tanks can clear away obstacles weighing up to 15 metric tons. Their metal tracks allo

w them to operate on slopes, in rocky terrain and in the debris of collapsed buildings.
