This micro-fighter is used in a chemical plant in Sachtleben (East-Germany). The fire extinguishing equipment makes use of russian technology in firefighting, coming from space technology.

Other companies have already shown interest in this model, so there might be more coming.

No thanks. I'll take water power and a real pumper over crazy euro technology. It might look cool but it won't put fires out.
Don't use water in a chemical plant!

This mini-fighter was developed for special purposes and it probably works out better, where space is limited and speed is required, instead of people carrying things as backpacks.

Wrong. You need to be trained in chemical fires. There are many cases where water needs to be used.

It depends on what you have. Sodium Hydroxide? Is it powder or aqueous? Titanium shavings? NO WATER! Dumpster fire, perhaps? The Purple K extinguishers are next to the water reactive agents so there is no need for a quick response vehicle like this. Looks cool though. There are way too many Fire Chiefs that would buy one for that reason alone.

Somebody get me a ladder, so I can get down off this horse!
