The body is divided into three separately installed parts:
front compartment for accessories
tank for water, covered with side panels
rear compartment for accessories and pumping equipment

Front Compartment
The front compartment frame is welded from steel sections and covered with aluminum plates bonded to the frame. The inside equipment is made of molded aluminum plate. The top platform is covered with the same plate bonded to the frame. Side compartments are closed with hinged doors.

Side Panels
The body side panels with rear axle wheel arches cover all tank sides and also provide border of the top working platform. The body side panels are welded from steel sections and covered with aluminum plate bonded to the frame.

Rear Compartment
As for the design, the rear compartment is similar to the front compartment, but in the rear side there is mounted a hinged door (liftgate) with gas springs. The door covers the compartment with the pumping equipment. The upper part of the compartment is provided with a ventilation that ensures the venting and cooling of the area where the pump is fitted.

Water Tank
Water tank is of a prismatic design. It is welded from steel plates (4mm thickness) and reinforced by U-irons. On the bottom part of the tank there are mounted two longitudinal beams, by which the tank is bolted to the footings of the chassis longitudinal frame. The tank is fitted with a device for remote control of water volume. On the upper side there is a manhole (diameter 450 mm) with hinged cover. Its shut-off mechanism operates also as the safety pressure relief valve protecting the tank against damage during filling. The diaphragm valve cylindrical housing is situated next to the manhole opening. The diaphragm valve allows for breathing of the tank when the pumping equipment is in operation, and carrying away excess water under the vehicle when overfilling the tank. The monitor pipeline passes through the tank. The DN 100 flange for connecting with the pump intake is in the bottom part of the tank. Tank capacity 6 000 liters, Test pressure 20 kPa.

Tear Agent Tank
The tank is welded from stainless steel plates. It is fitted with the filler opening with protective border for rapid filling on the upper part of the tank, the diaphragm bleeder valve with overflow and the device for remote control of quantity. The flange for connecting the tear agent pipeline with the proportioning system is in the bottom part of the tank. Tank capacity 200 liters.

Flush Water Tank
The tank is welded from stainless steel plates and mounted in the rear compartment. The tank is used to retain the water utilized for flushing (cleaning) of the pumping equipment when finishing the tear agent discharging. The ball cock for the tank drainage is in the bottom part of the tank. Tank capacity 200 liters.

Fire Pump
The fire pump is mounted in the rear compartment of the vehicle. It is provided with a combustion engine. The pump is remote controlled from the driver's cab. Technical data: Rated flow rate 1 500 l.min-1, Rated pressure 1.0 MPa.

Proportioning System
The proportioning system consists of a jet proportioner, control flap, electronic control and connecting pipeline. The tear agent is sucked in the water pump intake.
The adjusted proportioning percentage is maintained automatically and independently from the actual pressure and flow rate at the pump outlet and it is shown on the display of the electronic unit. Volume of tear agent sucked-in: 1 to 100 l.min-1

The control panel in the driver's cab comprises the following controls and instruments:
fire pump control elements (start, accelerator, pressure gauge, other controls and         instruments)
-water level gauge
-monitor control
-controls and instruments for tear agent proportioning system
-controls of protective nozzles system
-controls and instruments for camera system
-other controls and instruments

The hand operated rotary monitor is mounted on the roof of the front cab for accessories. It is extended by a pneumatic cylinder from transport position to working position (400mm stroke). The monitor is fitted with fixed STORZ B 75 coupling for connecting to water branchpipe. Rotation range: horizontal 360 -15 to +70

Protective Nozzles System
The vehicle is equipped with protective nozzles alongside and at exposed areas (tyres, camera cover, driver's cab windows, etc.). The nozzles ensure the protection against radiated heat caused by frangible grenades, as well as the washing of camera cover and driver's cab windows in case of contamination with pollutant.

Sprinkling Bar
The sprinkling bar is mounted below the front bumper. It consists of longitudinal tube with nozzles, equally placed. Supply of pressurized water is operated on the control panel located in the driver's cab.

Compartments for accessories
The rooms for accessories in the front and rear compartments are closed with doors. The door locks avoid any undesirable entry. The interior lighting is switched on automatically when opening the door. Opening of the compartment is indicated on the driver's instrument panel. The shelves (boxes) for accessories are made of aluminum plates.

Surface finish of bodywork plates - structure:
BODY EPOXY PRIMER priming coat - epoxide two-pack paint
BODY 3+1 filler
acrylate two-pack filler
BODY AUTO LACK 2K top enamel - acrylate two-pack enamel
Basic color tone: RAL 3000
