on the 13th of April 2004, a huge fire engulfed Makro, one of South Africa's largest wholesalers. The loss in stock was estimated at $30 million. An investigation was launched into the cause of the fire. The store was rebuilt and reopened within five months

Why are American fire engines so much cooler than European ones? They look like massive toys with all the chrome on them.

Here in Germany, when the government needs they set the specifications they need and puplish an anouncement to the car manufactures. the one with the cheepest offer (or the one who knows an important person and pays enough bribe money) gets the contract.

As Germany consists of 16 federal states you can find different kind of vehicles in each.
I live at the french border and we have an ford manufactory here so most police cars are ford and renault.
In Baden Würtemberg where the mercedes manufactory is you can find alot of mercedes.
And in Bavaria BMW...

I think they get them for really good price. Its alot of promotion for the manufacturers and really good for the prestige of the brand.
And as a german luxury car can be manufactured for much lower costs then the end customer actually has to pay they can easily afford this.
And dont forget:A TV Spot during an important sport event costs even more then the car itself.

Another thing to note about the American police cars is that even though they may not look so good, they have big 550 hp engines dropped in them, not to mention police spec tires and other upgrades. They may not be able to handle a Lamborghini, but pretty much anything else they can keep up with.

And besides, radio waves travel faster than any car. It doesn't matter if you're going 200 (320), the radio goes 186,000 per second (300k), and if there are 20 guys ahead, you're probably not making it out like you would want.

I personally think that for metropolitan police (such as San Francisco or New York) it would be better to have smaller cars simply because there is no room to accelerate in case of a pursuit, plus parking would be easier. It would probably not happen until Ford Corporation goes completely down the drain.

From wikipedia:
Quote:
Coaxial rotors are a pair of rotors turning in opposite directions, but mounted on a mast, with the same axis of rotation, one above the other. The advantage of the coaxial rotor is that, in forward flight, the lift provided by the advancing halves of each rotor compensates for the retreating half of the other, eliminating one of the key effects of dissymmetry of lift; retreating blade stall. However, other design considerations plague coaxial rotors. There is an increased mechanical complexity of the rotor system because it requires linkages and swashplates for two rotor systems. Add that each rotor system needs to be turned in opposite directions means that the mast itself is more complex, and provisions for making pitch changes to the upper rotor system must pass through the lower rotor system.

Mostly rural areas, because due to large territory it will take land vehicles too much time to arrive.

I think the Octopus is meant to Represent the Organised crime and and the Terrorists and so on...and the Eagle is the meant to reapresent the Polish state landing on the Crime and getting rid of it...These guys deal with the worst of the worst: you know smugglers, large cartels and so on.. they also have an Anti Terrorist wing which is seen above...

I think they should leave the octopus out of it. What bad experience have they had with one that warrants this? Did someone choke on calamari?
