Is it just a deck gun and the amount of water volume that they can project?
I thought the satellites had a large deluge on them

So if those Hydro pumps are doing the pumping, and they can relay those to a satellite or two other engines, then what’s the point of the super pumper?
My guess is those pumps could be placed in the river or body of water and pump to the super pumper who then relay pumps to satellites or tower ladders. Not all incidents will be right next to the water like this one was.

The super pumper was not used! They just needed water to supply an engine company on the other side of the building…. For the super pumper to get max pressure it needs 2 hydro pumps and one of the big marine units… The super pumper was called as in potential using it.

The Super Pumper is based off a industrial fire apparatus for oil refineries etc. Every manufacturer makes some type of variant. Typically they are 5000 gpm pumps and higher, and multiple monitors to deliver the water. The tanks are usually foam based, and more then 1 type. When I did a pre con with Sutphen, they had a monster custom tower ladder for an oil refinery. I think it was an 5000 gpm pump, 500 gallon foam tank, 1 or 2 other foam tanks, 6 monitors, 2 in the bucket 4 on the body. All remote controlled.

The "New" Super Pumper" takes too long to be placed in operation. More training is needed to make a smoother, faster deployment possible. I worked in the "Old" Super Pumper System, as a Fireman, from time to time in the 1970s it was not easy to get into operation, but this is worse. Captain Bob Rainey FDNY Engine 26 retired.
