Sometimes an Army Tactical Vehicle Just Won't Do the Job and Then You Need This (VIDEO)


Since Hurricane Harvey hit Houston and environs we’ve become familiar with the armada of privately owned small watercraft–from jet skis through pleasure boats–that have self-mobilized to rescue stranded Houstonians.


Less well known are the exploits of another rescue vehicle ideally suited to flooded areas: the monster truck.

If you have any doubts, take a look at this. A Texas National Guard M1078 (or at least M1078-class) is semi-submerged–I do hope the driver shut down the engine before the water hit the intake manifold–and a monster truck comes to the rescue (it looks like the same truck from the Anderson Cooper piece but I could be mistaken).
