DC: Dawn of Revenge - Fire Engine
The fire-fighting version of the TA-19 Truck.
About this creation
Becasue all self-sufficent Armies need a fire service on site incase of a fire in the munitions dump. Or the barracks. Or the canteen. Or somewhere else on site that we don't hear about much.

(Usung Flickr as a the hosting site, as the MOCpages picture system sucks and messes everything up)


LTC, Lego Truck Company, felt it was time to update the Desert Commando's main truck. The TR-14, they decided, would be used only to transport supplies out in the fields and over rough ground, where they excelled.

Turning to the drawing board, LTC decided to create a truck to be used on the roads in the towns and cities occupied by the DC. It need to be able to haul supplies the long distances between cities, be strong, easily adaptable and easy to maintain and fix. They decided to try a new approach on this new truck, and make it a long-nose cab, instead of an over-engine cab.

The tests went well, and the TA-19 was created. A few months later, a TA-19 was turned into a fire truck, and thus it became the standard fire-fighting vehicle of the Desert Commando Army.

Army Base Fire Engine front
Front/side shot. Showing off the sweet square-ness of Army truck. In the army, curves are for wimps. Square is best.





Army Base Fire Engine overall
Because all fire engines need ladders for non-specific reasons. If you cant reach the fire with a water jet, use ladderz.





Army Base Fire Engine rear
The rear (duh). Nothing fancy here, just good ol' water pumps, levers and a smiling generic fireman.






Army Base Fire Engine overall
Overall. Those fire sticker/bricks what were gave me the idea to make the model. Hats off to them.

Those old 1990's fire truck bricks are still kickin' out inspiration all over...Awesome truck Tim, I like the new engine compartment design. One thing I have to point out though...where's the hose?
