The greatest tool in firefighting history...LIU history, that is....
About this creation
The Ludgonian Industrial Union's product line of fire fighting products has seen little success. Customers are nervous about leaving their traditional fire fighting methods, which they know work. But now's the time. This product, the Firebug, will leave no doubt in our buyer's mind.
Our other fire fighting products allowed us to advanced the technology far enough to make the versatile Firebug. Now, this hovercraft is set to become the universe's answer to fire fighting.
With hover and flight capabilities, the Firebug can reach any fire, from street level to the top of your tallest high rise. And, it can get there fast.
The Firebug is not only a pumper. It also has a rear compartment to transport any tools you will need.
From the top view, you can see the smooth rounded design, which prompted designers to name it after the LIU's official insect, the Firebug.
The rear corner view that shows nothing of importantance. Examine it closely, and tell us if you see any we forgot to mention.
Here's a view of the side engines that give the Firebug all of its speed.
With all this talk about speed, hovering, and beetles, we forgot to mention how it fights fire. Well here it is. Four nozzles spray our trademark fire fighting solution on your fires. The two interior nozzles are hinged and can spray up and down. Oooh...
The Firebug is piloted by a single pilot. Here he is. His controls can be seen in the overhead view above.
The rear of the Firebug swings open revealing its rear hold. Here, it is shown holding a deployable hose unit.
This deployable unit can be dropped off and left for ground fire fighters. Here's a front and back view.
When the unit is removed, you can see the hold also contains the Firebug's compressed tanks and part of its mechanical system.
Oh yeah! The hold can also house several firefighters with full gear. Fly them up to any floor and let them get to work saving all the young maidens.*
Buy this multi-purpose fire stopping machine today. We recommend you get several thousand of them.
Note: Saving young maidens is the most fun, but don't forget about the kids, elderley, women, and pets. When that's all safe, go back and see if any of the middle aged men are still alive and save them.
My Dominion Federation is wishing for the LIU be allies with us, for the Galaxies protection and liberation. Reply must be before SolarDate 9525.13 AKA 7th January. If you fail to reply, we will destroy your fleet.
I like it

A very nice MOC indeed. The colour scheme hurts my eyes (+4 smileys) and the part about rescueing Young Maidens made me laugh (+ 1). Good Job!
So if we have a fire emergency do we dial 9-1-1 or L-I-U? Haha, just kidding. Nice design, now firefighters don't have to deal with ladders and can put out the fire quicker. Like how the hovercraft has troop transport characteristics. Nice work.
As my ally, leader of the Galactic Confederacy, previously states, we declare war on the LIU. We grow tiresome of the constant flood of LIU products... enough, Emperor Ludgonious. But you still make quality models.
The Galactic Confederacy and C-Quadrant Defenders would like to together declare war on the LIU, Emperor. Our alliance grows weary of your monopoly-like business that dominates the very space universe of MOCpages. The LIU is going down! (but your creations are still great lol)
