    Very powerful vehicle. 4 hoses in for that power output. Maybe enough to create a wave pool. Ha ha!

    The water mist fire suppression is not particularly effective in protest / riot control due to its low-pressure, low-velocity output capacity as compared relative to a deluge gun or fire monitor also commonly known as a water canon.

    In extreme scenario, might want to give this a try...
