MAN TGA complicated avocation trucks yield health caring for inhabitants as Bundeswehr puncture vehicles. The THW brings a helpers to a places of deployment in a MAN TGM 4×4 array and works side by side with a firefighters to siphon H2O out of basements and cellars. When a misfortune partial of a clean-up work is finished, vacuuming and flushing vehicles like a MAN TGS 26.440 will be indispensable to purify a sewers to make a cities comfortable again. All in all, around 3000 MAN vehicles are being used turn a time – from 30-year-old vehicles of a internal glow dialect to complicated special apparatus that can bucket adult and ride a THW’s vast rescue boats, for example.
