Marmon-Herrington late 1950's 0-12.  ( Around 1958, but I'll be interested to see how definitive you can be on the builder )

You'd need an airfield to run something that size round

Agree - Marmon-Herrington 0-12 developed in 1955 for SAC and 3 built but never put in service.

Bill White got everyone started on the right track, this is a 1955 or so Marmon-Herrington O-12 crash truck built for the USAF. Fred Crismon says this truck was "probably built by Marmon-Herrington", so there seems to be a little doubt about it's orgins, although other sources also attibute this beast to M-H. The engine was a Continental A V 1790-8A V12 tank engine, while the pump used a Continental AOS-895-3 air cooled model.  Here's a little more info on this truck from Bill. Thanks to Dan Souday for this photo.


Here is some info on the 0-12 M H. 0-12 Marmon- Herrington in March 1955 developed 0-12 crash truck for use in SAC. The truck held 2 1/2 times more foam than the 0-11A. With a capacity of 2,500 gals. of foam/water and 85 gals. of CB, the 0-12 could discharge at the rate of 1,500 GPM. The latter figure was based on mixing one part foam with 9 parts water from a stationary position 0-12 could attain 55 mph in 50 seconds. Top speed for the 65,000 pound vehicle was 65 mph. It carried a 7 man crew and was fueled from a 175 gallon tank. The 0-12 had a 810 hp, V8 air cooled engine with a supercharger, wile the pump was equipped with a 500 hp engine. Only 3 0-12s were built, and they were never put in  service.
