The “Big Wind” is a machine, like out of a movie of the “Star Wars”series. Two huge engines look threatening to the front, are mounted on a tank chassis.

In the Soviet Union to Delete the oil wells fires, and for clearing snow from airports, a single MiG-15 jet engine was used, which was fastened on the loading area of a truck. So the machine was not strong enough to fight the fires in Kuwait. So the company MB-upgraded the concept to “Big Wind on Drilling”.

Great fires, even through the use of pressure-wave bombs do not delete, because they ignite after the wave faded away, quickly. Too powerful explosions would destroy the boreholes and installations in the depth. You will not be damaged by the Big Wind, above the ground, the rapidly moving steam way shaved leg, however, everything. A house fire would be to delete the Big Wind hardly, and then the debris of the house, hundreds of meters would be thrown through the air.
