Interesting that they are being transported with the FDNY logo uncovered. I forget what back it was but some of the newer trucks recently have been being shipped with the logos covered up. I believe those trucks are being driven however so maybe I don't need to be covered if they are on a flatbed

I do not really have an answer on the FDNY logos being covered or not but as Bulldog said maybe the fact that it is being flat bedded instead of driven may have something to do with it ?.... there could be a number of reasons ....liability for an accident may come into play ?

I wonder why they are transporting these via flatbed instead of driving them?

Again i hate to say it , i cannot remember the last time any of the satellites were actually put into service . Why not continue to use the Mack's ?

Like any other machine, maintaining them gets more expensive and parts are harder to find over time. Plus, the satellites go into service every second alarm, even if that giant deck gun doesn't get used. It's the run to the job and back that wears things out.

Further, the replacement satellites will have an expanded role in Foam Operations. Each of the six will have the foam/water Williams Ranger 3+ monitor/nozzle rather than the IntelliGiant monitor used for many years.
