Big Wind: The Ultimate Fire Extinguisher

Big Wind - The Ultimate Fire Extinguisher

A team of Hungarian engineers have built the ultimate fire extinguisher, they called it “big wind”. They’ve removed the gun turrets from an old Russian tank, replaced them with 2 turbines from a MiG-21 fighter jet. This extreme machine was used to fight the Kuwait oil fires, after the Iraqi invasion in August 1990.

Watch the jet engine fire extinguisher in the video below. The short clip is a part of the 1992 American documentary “Fires of Kuwait
