The locomotive, customized from a flat container car, can run as fast as 120 kilometers per hour. It is equipped with a firefighting container and two can-type water containers, as well as a multi-functional high-pressure fog extinction device. In addition, the train also has a lighting system, warning lamps, alarm, grounding devices and basic hand tools.
Because it can shoot fire extinguishing media as far as 485 meters, the train is capable of putting out fires breaking out on a 16-car high-speed train.
In addition to firefighting, the train can also serve as a water supply device, offering water to trains running in remote and water-deficient areas. Besides, it can clean tracks, bridges and tunnels with the water containers and water torch it carries.
