Info
The Type 900 is perhaps one of the most popular antique fire trucks we associate America with. It was American Lafrance's flagship truck, coming with a v12 producing 175hp-330hp, based on the consumer's needs. It replaced the 700/800 series of trucks, which had become outdated. The new trucks could pump up too 2,000 gallons of water per minute through the pumps.
There's still several examples of this truck in service today. It still serves the duty it was given.
Since there were plenty of coach builders that made bodies, I decided to make my own rear body. This is a support truck, that would be used to pump water to nearby trucks from hydrants or onto buildings by handheld hoses. It lacks a deck gun, but it does include a ladder.

.

Controls
1 is main lights
2 and 3 are directionals
4 activates emergency lights
5 blasts the air horn
7 turns on spotlights
Landing Gear opens doors
Trim is throttle (Engine is inside the bay by the jump seats if you wish to change the input to pitch)
Roll steers

.

Notes
-It is a little speedy. I made it top out at 98mph to keep SP users happy.
-Sometimes if you go over a bump at high speeds, a wheel may become stuck. Easiest way to fix it is to roll over.

Enjoy!

    This is the typical set up for engines today as water flows from the hydrant to the engine via a supply line at which point they can use attack or trash lines directly from the engine as well as feed water to other trucks via a relay line
