In purely concept form right now, the Amatova ATV, from designer Liam Ferguson, gives us a vision into what first-line fire-fighting could look like in the near future. More like something out of the ‘Terminator’ series than out of your local firehouse, the Amatova houses 2 passengers in a high-visibility cockpit and can liquid Howitzer its 500 gallons of water from the Remotely Operated Suppression Cannon Outfit (ROSCO). The Amatoya also protects its own passengers with clear aerogel laminated insulation in the 360 view windows and the body, a temp sensitive spray down system, military-grade thermo ceramic paint, and a beefy diesel engine to propel the futuristic craft both in and out of hot situations. The piece de resistance is the Back to the Future homage gull-wing doors. Who says emergency services can’t be stylish?
