Evergreen’s mammoth 747 Supertanker, developed at a cost approaching $50,000,000, can drop 26,000 gallons of retardant over an area 300 feet wide and almost five miles long. The big fire bomber can also make any number of “smart” tactical drops of any requested size utilizing its unique pressurized tanks and dispersal system.

Capable of carrying liters of retardant, gel, foam or water in its constant flow external tank system, the has consistently proven to be effective in both direct and indirect applications.
