Eurocopter last month announced that its EC 225 Super Puma firefighting system is undergoing a certification process, with deliveries pegged to start next year. The main component of the retrofittable system is a flexible 4,000-liter (1,060 U.S. gallon) tank attached to the cabin floor. The system also includes a water scoop and jettison kit. It can be installed or removed in 20 minutes, according to Eurocopter.
