Class 1020 Trailer

This truck was used to provide Structural Fire-fighting support and was supplied to airfields for airplane accidents

The 1020 trailer carried 170 gallons of water and was towed by a 3/4 ton  or 1.5 ton vehicle (usually a Dodge WC51 Weapons Carrier of Dodge WC 62/63). It consisted of a 650 psi 100 gpm pump driven by a Dodge T-118 6 cylinder motor mounted in a Ben Hur style trailer

This unit appeared very late in World War 2.
