Flooding has been a deadly problem since the dawn of civilization, and boats have traditionally been used as the main mode of transportation for rescue. The only problem is, flooded areas often have areas of shallow water and dry patches where a car or truck is often more effective. After a recent string of floods in Germany, EDAG has taken a swipe at this problem with its new amphibious rescue vehicle.
Although this two for-one vehicle was designed for German needs, we have a feeling that it would work just as well in the hands of the US National Guard or Coast Guard. If you want a boat and car in one, however, we don't think this thing would pass US crash-test regulations.
