Sorry if this does not belong in this forum, wasn't sure where to ask the ?. Last night I went out for a walk down 3rd ave in NYC and saw a very strange truck around 54th st by the lipstick building. It was a brand new Black Fire truck but with no Markings, plates, Hoses, ladders or windows on the sides and the front windows looked tinted out. The thing was gigantic and looked very menacing. On the back was a Camera much like the ones you see all over England now but on a telescoping pole much like you will find on top of News vans. The truck had no doors or compartment doors on the side either like you would find on a fire truck. Anyone else in NYC seen this going around? Any ideas on what this truck could be? If not, keep your eyes open. Made me stop and look around for a second expecting to see soldiers dressed in black following it

Sounds like one of the mobile police stations we have down here in the Baltimore/DC area.

Looks very similar to a fire truck, but is actually an office on wheels. They use it for things like standoff situations, events, and other reasons you'd need a near by place to handle information or communication.

For a while, the Baltimore one (they may have more) was just black. It had expendable com and camera towers and such. After about 8 months they finally got around to painting the police logo on the side.

It may not be police, I know some companies have similar trucks.

With nothing else to go on, it may be a number of things.

  • The black fire truck may be a privately owned vehicle.

  • The black fire truck may a SWAT vehicle.

  • The black fire truck may be ... A black fire truck ...

This quite literally could be anything from a "fire truck" that's on it's way to being fitted for the missing equipment of fire fighters, to a mobile command cneter for the SWAT Team, to an Urban Command Assualt Center in case of riots and or mass hysteria for any number of reasons.

Without a picture to see or some other details, there will be a lot of speculation going on here in this thread...and that's about it.
