PST-72052 1/72 PMZ-2 (ZiS-5) Fire Tanker model kitThe production of PMZ-2 fire-trucks was initiated in the Soviet Union before the Second World War. The fire-fighting units of the Red Army Air Forces, large military garrisons and storage facilities as well as city fire departments were equipped with them. Attached equipment of the PMZ-2 could be installed on different types 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. During the war years 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 US-6 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.
