Another odd unit, this one from Germany.

Very unique piece of apparatus.

 

My question is: with a pair of front axles so close together, I assume that it must be a twin-steer axle. If not, the turning radius must be horrible. To top it off it's a cab-forward so I would think learning to drive it and to really get a feel for it must take some practice. Any thoughts?

I would agree, although if I remember correctly almost all Germans have to do compulsory military service, so I'm sure more than a few have driven vehicles similar to this.

Definitely twin steer. 

 

I would venture a real good guess that the "shower" system is referring to underbody sprinklers and all around sprinklers to be able to drive over hot materials?
