ZiS Fire Tanker
The production of PMZ-2 fire-trucks was initiated in the Soviet Union before the World War II. The fire-fighting units of the Red Army Air Forces, large military garrisons and storage facilities as well as urban fire departments were equipped with them. Attached equipment of the PMZ-2 culd be installed on different type of trucks. At first it was installed only on ZIS-5 chassis. Later a small batch of PMZ-2 was built based on ZIS-6. In 1940 a small batch of fire tankers were produced using ZIS-5 with crew cab. During the years of war ZIS-6 trucks were discontinued and the production of ZIS-5 was reduced. Therefore at the end of the war (1944-1945) firefighting equipment of PMZ-2 was installed on the chassis of a ZIS-42 half-track and US6 Studebaker truck. PMZ-2 fire trucks served in the Soviet firefighting units for almost twenty years and were phased out by the mid-fifties of the twentieth century
